Inspired by the countless amazing views in Alberta, our Amber Brown Ale is now called Buena Vista Brown Ale!
Our brown ale recipe has not changed. It is still a hearty, London-style brown ale, traditionally hopped with US Goldings hops. It serves as a refreshing all-purpose beer for those who enjoy dark ales.
Okay - we're going to say it: beer isn't always about the hops. Ales like our Buena Vista are more about getting a sweet, roasty and malty taste. This is London-style brew is no exception. Dark with a caramel aroma, Buena Vista focuses on the subtle tastes in every sip. “A beautifully balanced brown ale with notes of chocolate, raisin, and allspice” – Stephen Beaumont’s The Great Canadian Beer Guide
The major thing to note for Buena Vista Brown Ale is the emphasis on the malt. That doesn’t mean we don’t use any hops though. We brew Buena Vista with Goldings to add a light floral hoppy note to the taste.
The subtle floral spiciness of Goldings hops in Alley Kat’s Buena Vista beer is marvellous for pairing with meats and cheeses. We’d suggest serving it with an antipasti platter: we’re talking genoa salami, kalamata olives, provolone, and our gal Buena Vista. Salute!

We brewed this beer to commemorate the life of our beloved brewery dog and security guard, Jake. He enjoyed coming into work everyday for sixteen years to distract our staff, play fetch, and beg for scraps under the lunchroom table. Cheers Jake!
