About Prairie Dog Brewing

Located at 105D 58 Ave SE Calgary, Our 200-seat brewpub is fun and bohemian with a family-friendly, come-as-you-are attitude in a conversation-friendly atmosphere, and boasts open-air views into our microbrewery and large, open kitchen pass. Our food is made from scratch with Alberta ingredients, and focus on Texas-style barbecue, with meats and vegetables smoked and slow roasted in Clifford, our big red barbecue pit from Mesquite, Texas (the biggest BBQ pit of its kind in Canada). Check out our menu here.

We are training our staff to become Cicerone Beer Servers, and we will focus on keeping a large variety of our own beers on tap as well as a few other great options, beer and non-beer. Come on out!

Tail-Twitcher   (3.72/5)

Clear, amber and dry, this modern example of an American-style IPA bursts with big tropical, citrusy flavours with assertive bitterness and balanced malt character. Dry-hopped twice with Amarille, Mosaic, and Lemondrop.

Style: IPA - American

ABV: 6.6%    IBU: 75

Link Back: Tail-Twitcher - Brewed In Calgary AB

Super B (Formerly Hopped Wheat)   (3.59/5)

2020 Alberta Beer Awards Bronze Medal Winner. This American-style wheat beer pours golden with a white, foamy head, and features prominent citrus, stone fruit, and bread aroma. This beer has a light, refreshing body with moderate carbonation and a dry but soft bread-flavoured finish and mild grain aftertaste.

Style: Wheat Beer - American Pale Wheat

ABV: 4.8%    IBU: 23

Link Back: Super B (Formerly Hopped Wheat) - Brewed In Calgary AB

Coconut Brown Ale   (3.66/5)

2019 Canadian International Beer Festival Gold Winner. This beer overlays sweet, fresh, house-toasted coconut on a nutty brown base beer, with flavours of milk chocolate, caramel and toast, on a mildly bitter backbone with a dry finish.

Style: Brown Ale - English

ABV: 5.5%    IBU: 31

Link Back: Coconut Brown Ale - Brewed In Calgary AB

F5 To Refresh   (3.64/5)

A fun take on the Gose style, which is a light, slightly tart and fruity German wheat ale style traditionally brewed with a noticeable salt addition. Wanting to capture that sparkle of refreshing summer flavours, we add fresh ginger lime and house-tempered Coriander. F5 To Refresh pours golden yellow with a hint of haze, effervescent lime tickles the nose, and the sweet and tart foretaste is followed with a warming ginger backbone.

Style: Sour - Fruited Gose

ABV: 4.5%    IBU: 13

Link Back: F5 To Refresh - Brewed In Calgary AB

Little Bear   (3.56/5)


Flavourful but easy drinking, our Kölsch-style ale is clean and crisp with a slightly sweet grainy flavour and a dry finish. Based on the pilsner style, but fermented with ale yeast and lagered for several weeks, this beer has a pleasant, soft and surprisingly refreshing flavour profile that makes it stand tall beside its lager brethren.

Style: Kölsch

ABV: 4.4%    IBU: 23

Link Back: Little Bear - Brewed In Calgary AB

Jitter Bear   (3.75/5)

Our Little Bear Kölsch recipe infused with a custom blend of cold-brew coffee by Typeface Coffee Roasters, which brings milk chocolate, toffee and caramel notes to the beer – no harsh coffee bitterness at all. Tastes like a Coffee Crisp bar in a glass.

Style: Kölsch

ABV: 4.3%    IBU: 23

Link Back: Jitter Bear - Brewed In Calgary AB

Gunnison’s Red   (3.69/5)

Our red ale takes cues from the classic Irish Red style, employing a hint of roasted barley for colour and taste atop a base of sweeter caramel malts with a deliberate underlying bitterness that keeps the beer palatable adding a pleasant aftertaste.

Style: Red Ale - American Amber / Red

ABV: 5.5%    IBU: 24

Link Back: Gunnison’s Red - Brewed In Calgary AB

Uncle Eddie's Oatmeal Stout   (3.62/5)

A rich, dark stout with a thick, creamy head and full mouthfeel, having notes of coffee, caramel, and dark chocolate with background smoke character from our in-house-smoked flaked oats.

Style: Stout - Oatmeal

ABV: 5.4%    IBU: 34

Link Back: Uncle Eddie's Oatmeal Stout - Brewed In Calgary AB

Kettle Sour Gone Wild!   (3.71/5)

Our conventionally-fermented kettle sour, then barrel-aged with wild yeast, adding complex, spicy phenols and fruity flavours. This white-wine-like beer is easy-drinking, providing taste of tart apple, oak, cracker and a subtly funky character.

Style: Sour - Other

ABV: 3.3%    IBU: 7

Link Back: Kettle Sour Gone Wild! - Brewed In Calgary AB

Jumpingpound   (3.59/5)

A hazy, tart and crackery Kettle Sour with a hint of lemon. Try this traditional sour on its own or with our house made fruit syrups! A modern take on German Berliner-weisse with a tart acidity and surprising level of flavour and body for such a low alcohol beer, with plenty of malty, husky grain flavour and a pale yellow colour with some haze. Originally called Kettle Sour #2, Jumpingpound is the basis for nearly all of our Barrel-Aged Sour and Barrel-Aged Fruited Sour beers. We are bringing this classic back in its unadulterated form with a fancy new name, emphasizing the importance of the connection to nature and the versatility of this product that has been around all along, but quietly in the background.

Style: Sour - Berliner Weisse

ABV: 4%    IBU: 7

Link Back: Jumpingpound - Brewed In Calgary AB

Riise of the Phoenix   (3.92/5)

New England-style Double IPA dosed with mangos and habaneros to create a bright, juicy, and tropical summer treat with just enough heat to make your taste buds tingle.

Style: IPA - Imperial / Double New England / Hazy

ABV: 8.8%    IBU: 59

Link Back: Riise of the Phoenix - Brewed In Calgary AB

Strait-Laced Saison   (3.58/5)

An extremely refreshing Belgian-style straw-coloured saison with spicy yeast-derived notes of clove and pepper, with pleasant malty foundations.

Style: Farmhouse Ale - Saison

ABV: 5.3%    IBU: 10

Link Back: Strait-Laced Saison - Brewed In Calgary AB

Dessert Stout   (3.74/5)

This easy-drinking beer was inspired by the flavours of waffle-cone ice cream and includes real Madagascar vanilla and a variety of other unique ingredients that make it the perfect after-dinner treat or a fun sipper around the campfire.

Vanilla with a milk chocolate and cotton-candy character. Slight ashy character in the finish, well integrated.

Style: Stout - Milk / Sweet

ABV: 4.5%    IBU: 35

Link Back: Dessert Stout - Brewed In Calgary AB

Berry Burrow   (3.64/5)

Originally Berry Manly in collaboration with Hubtown Brewery (Okotoks, AB) to celebrate International Women’s Day, 2020, this beer is a uniquely refreshing Belgian-style blonde ale with raspberry and a custom Pink Boots Society blend of American hops. Underlying the fruit and bready malt flavours is a spicy Belgian yeast character.

Style: Fruit Beer

ABV: 5.5%    IBU: 19

Link Back: Berry Burrow - Brewed In Calgary AB

Prairie Lands Lager   (3.66/5)

This rich and malty lager highlights some of the fantastic malt grown and produced on our very own prairie lands. Expect a strong malty flavour with notes of chocolate, caramel, cracker and biscuit, with a sweeter profile based on the lager yeast.

Style: Lager - Vienna

ABV: 5%    IBU: 23

Link Back: Prairie Lands Lager - Brewed In Calgary AB

Crispy Gurl   (3.69/5)

For this year’s International Women’s Day brew, we are collaborating with XHale Brew Co to create our own take on a very new style, the “Cold IPA”, which is sweeping across the USA but has yet to make its mark on Alberta. This mixed style combines aspects of both a European Lager and a West Coast IPA to create a very unique brew that is light in colour, crisp in finish, and heavy on hops. What better way to showcase this year’s Pink Boots hop blend? Our annual Pink Boots Brew is used to re-establish the conversation around women empowerment and inclusion in the brewing industry and we’ve teamed up with XHale Brew Co to help expand our reach with this important message.

Style: IPA - American

ABV: 6.8%    IBU: 50

Link Back: Crispy Gurl - Brewed In Calgary AB

EDM   (3.6/5)

With a straight-forward name for its straight-forward nature, EDM is a working class beer that was crafted to be sessionable, smooth, and very easy drinking. The use of English pale malt, along with a mix of 5 other specialty malts, creates a malt-forward beverage that highlights flavours of toast, toffee, dark fruit, chocolate, and coffee. Along with this comes a creamy and sustaining off-white head thanks to the addition of flaked oats and wheat.

Style: Mild - Other

ABV: 3.3%    IBU: 18

Link Back: EDM - Brewed In Calgary AB

Robin Des Bois   (3.87/5)

A dry all-brett-fermented barrel-aged red ale with berry-like flavours and chocolatey undertones. This beer appeals to a wider range of beer drinkers than most wild-fermented ales.

Style: Brett Beer

ABV: 6.5%    IBU: 24

Link Back: Robin Des Bois - Brewed In Calgary AB

Brewers' Getaway   (3.73/5)

A refreshing and bold blond ale with coconut, pineapple and lactose to create a beer reminiscent of a smooth and tropical piña colada! We used HBC-472 hops to add to the pineapple tropical flavours.

Style: Fruit Beer

ABV: 5.6%    IBU: 18

Link Back: Brewers' Getaway - Brewed In Calgary AB

Zinful California Zinfandel Barrel-Aged Baltic Porter   (3.19/5)

We took Desperate Times, our unique take on a Baltic Porter and aged it in a single barrel that once held California Zinfandel (2018 vintage), bringing mellow dark fruit, vanilla, and toast undertones to an already rich and delicious porter. Lagered and barrel-aged, this beer is smooth and crisp, yet full bodied and deceptively easy drinking for its alcohol content. At over 10%, this beer brings a fair amount of alcoholic heat that is beautifully balanced and mellowed from its extended barrel-aging time of 1 year. The resulting flavours resemble that of a glass of sherry or port with plenty of oak, vanilla, toast, and dark fruit notes.

Style: Porter - Imperial / Double Baltic

ABV: 10.3%    IBU: 36

Link Back: Zinful California Zinfandel Barrel-Aged Baltic Porter - Brewed In Calgary AB

Firebrand Tennessee Whiskey Barrel-Aged Baltic Porter   (Unrated)

We took Desperate Times, our unique take on a Baltic Porter, the 100th batch of beer brewed at Prairie Dog Brewing and aged it for 5 months in Tennessee Whiskey barrels, bringing bold yet smooth whiskey characteristics to an already rich and delicious beer. The malty sweet chocolate and light roastiness serve to introduce the warming backbone of its 10.3% ABV. Lagered and barrel-aged, this beer is smooth and crisp, yet full bodied and deceptively easy drinking for its alcohol content.

Style: Porter - Imperial / Double Baltic

ABV: 10.3%    IBU: 36

Link Back: Firebrand Tennessee Whiskey Barrel-Aged Baltic Porter - Brewed In Calgary AB

Crispier Gurl   (Unrated)

We’ve made our Crispy Gurl Cold IPA a little crispier by aging it for three months in a barrel used previously for gin to draw out beautiful gin notes. This beautiful barrel-aged version of Crispy Gurl continues our successful collaboration with Christina of XhAle Brew Co. The use of a bourbon barrel that had housed gin previously paired perfectly with the flavour notes of Crispy Gurl adding floral and juniper notes to the citrus and red berry already present in our flagship Cold IPA.

Style: IPA - American

ABV: 7%    IBU: 50
