Legal Issues   (3.69/5)

You brew a great beer. Then you come up with a great name for that beer. Then you run into legal issues when it turns out that name is already taken by folks who don’t play nice. So you say to hell with it. And you change the name: Legal Issues.

Nutty, fruity, toffee, molasses and caramel notes on the nose followed by light coffee, caramel and delicious nutty flavours on your palate. Hopped solely with EKG, it provides an earthy and grassy undertone. This brew is a smooth drinker, has a sweet finish due the residual sweetness of the Scottish yeast and is one of the most popular beer here at Origin.

Style: Scottish Export Ale

ABV: 5%    IBU: 18

The 160   (3.48/5)

The 160 is truly Alberta in a glass. Made up of Origin base malt and Red Shed wheat, both grown and malted right here in Alberta. The 160 refers to the 160 acres of land given to settlers of Alberta who set up shop and shaped what agriculture is today in this great prairie province.

Notes of citrus, straw and wheat dominate this light, crushable brew, perfect for any occasion.

Alberta agriculture at its finest.

The Darkness   (3.85/5)

A silver medal winner at the Alberta Beer Awards 2018, our Porter is a roasty brew.

True Prairie   (3.65/5)

We grow our very own Alberta barley. Then we harvest and malt that Alberta barley. Then we brew those barley malts with Warrior, Mosaic, Citra and El Dorado hops to craft the finest IPA across the flatlands: True Prairie IPA.
Look for citrus and tropical combined with earthy and dank west coast notes. A sturdy malt backbone balances it all out. Yum

Style: IPA - American

ABV: 6.5%    IBU: 60

Full Sleeve   (3.66/5)

Our flagship beer! (named after our brewers full sleeve tattoos) Hopped with Chinook, Columbus, Citra and El Dorado, this IPA has a great balance of malt character, bitterness and hop aroma/flavor.

This IPA is a cross between dank and piney West Coast IPAs and bright, citrus and tropical IPAs. Made with 100% Origin malt it features a hearty malt backbone and leaves a lingering toast and caramel tone.

This Brown is made with a Origin European Base malt, Brown, Chocolate, Munich, and Crystal malts, noble hops and English Ale yeast. This medium bodied brew is brown in color, smells and tastes of fresh brewed coffee, chocolate, biscuit, tree nuts and some citrusy yeast character.

Highly recognized and highly enjoyable!

Backdraft Red Ale   (3.59/5)

Made in collaboration with the Strathmore Fire Department to help raise money for their charity to buy new equipment - this Red is a unique one, made of a very select Origin malt bill to give such a fine red tone. The aroma of caramel, toast, grapefruit and floral, a hearty malt backbone mashes well with the addition of Fuggles and Centennial boil hops to add a grassy/floral/grapefruit aspect. A cool fermentation results in a very clean and smooth delivery leaving almost no aftertaste. Support a great cause by enjoying a great beer!

This Black IPA is dominated with citrus, grassy and grapefruit flavors from the hops and roasty, chocolate notes from the malt. It is capped off with a dry, lingering finish due to the use of Roasted Barley.
Dark, creamy, resinous and just a little bit of sweetness. A little different then your average Black IPA - and its meant to be.

Gettin' All Hopped Up   (3.98/5)

Silver medal winner at the Alberta Beer Awards 2018, this delicious New England style IPA is bursting with big citrus and tropical fruit. The haze this beer presents is due to a high percent of flaked oats in the mash and the excessive amount of dry hopping, during and after fermentation. A dry finish, just enough bitterness and big fruit notes combine in this juicy brew. Enjoy!
