Try our spin on the traditional wheat ale. Alley Kat has managed to turn wheat ale into a fruity delight with natural apricot extracts.
Aprikat is brewed with 50% malted wheat and fermented with our house ale yeast. Aprikat has a medium carbonation that gives a light, crisp straw-coloured pour.
A favourite for cooking, Aprikat is especially perfect for Jennifer Cockrall-King’s Apricot Beer Waffles recipe. Maybe add a fruity syrup too if you’re feeling plucky. Aprikat also plays nice with pumpkin in a comforting dish from Fairmont Hotel Macdonald’s Executive Chef, Patrick Turcot: Roasted Pumpkin and Aprikat Bisque with Farm Fresh Sour Cream and Toasted Pine Nuts.
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!

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.
