Of the many perks when working for a libation tour company, one of my favorites is getting to try the newest beers in town. Having so many local partners that we work with, there is never a shortage of tasty and creative beers to sample. Even better is when two great breweries (Eighty-Eight and Born) get together to make a rare style of beer.
Everyone has heard of India Pale Ale, but have you heard of India Pale Lager?
When we see our friends and partners win Gold, Silver or Bronze at the Alberta Provincial Beer awards, it means we pretty much know our beers really well. Safe to say that we already knew they were winners because we visit over half of the Breweries on this list during our Calgary and Edmonton Brewery Tours!
Warning, reading this might make you thirsty.

Hey Calgary! There is a tasty new product released just in time for summer which appears to have finally arrived !
Founded in 2018 by business partners Faye Warrington and Marty Lastiwka Skunkworks began distilling their moonshine in 2019 with sugar beets from just down the street in Taber, Alberta. Moonshine, which is responsible for the creation of Nascar, is called Moonshine because it used to be made illegally at night and the moon would shine on the liquid, however, Skunkworks is 100% legal and their new canned Moonshine Mule is 100% delicious. It is a powerfully-gingery-spicy mule by design and the dominant tasting note would be the spice from the kilograms of fresh ginger infused in their own ginger simple syrup, along with an undertone of caramel …and of course lime.
Although the Moonshine Mule is not currently found on store shelves, it will be soon. In the meantime, you can always request a Canadian Craft Distillery tour to stop by and visit Faye and Marty at their distillery (SW Calgary near the Barley Belt), which houses a tasting room, and a jam/rehearsal/recording space for musicians.
As Canada surpasses 1100 craft breweries and breweries become the new "Local" or "Bars" there's more craft breweries than you think. Whether you want to listen to a podcast about your local breweries or get a taste of a new city/province that you are set to visit this summer there's a beer podcast for all beer drinkers.
