A Little Mid-August Clean Up

A beer you won’t actually be seeing on store shelves, unfortunately.

So things have been slower on the beer news front the past few weeks as I imagine most breweries in the region are busy trying to keep up with summer beer sales. But a few straggled bits of news have come across my […]

The Beer in April Just Keeps Pourin’ in

Before the e-ink was dry on my last news digest (found here), more beer news came rolling in, as usual. Here is the latest of which I am aware.

Tickets for Edmonton Beer Geeks Anonymous‘ third annual Real Ale Festival go on sale on Friday April 18. This annual event has grown in popularity since […]

Bisons Are Big This Week

Clearly prairie brewers like their buffalo, as two of the region’s craft breweries are releasing beer named after the majestic, almo-made-extinct-by-humans beasts. Plus I have a bit of other beer news for you.

First to the Bisons.

This week, the folks at Ribstone Creek are announcing a new seasonal beer, Lone Bison IPA, which should […]

Plus, my visit to the Edmonton Craft Beer Festival on […]

Big Rock’s Big Plans and Other News

Yesterday, Big Rock released the latest in their Alchemist Series. This latest one is Erratic Stone-Fired Ale, a Stein Bier. Only 3300 bottles (750ml flip tops) were produced. I have not tasted it yet (although I do have a bottle in my possession, so I will report on it when I try it), but the […]

Red, Copper, Aluminum and Other Beer News

A few things have snuck past me (well, not snuck past me so much as I chose not to write a post about them yet) in the past month, so I thought I should put together a quick news update post. Most of the news right now seems to be from northern Alberta, as the […]
