Current Big Bottle:
Old Jake's Farmhouse Ale
Release Date: June 26th, 2014

Available just in time for the peak of patio season Old Jake's Farmhouse Ale, our latest in the Big Bottle Series, is the perfect way to beat the heat. Traditionally farmhouse ales (or Saisons) were brewed by farmers in the winter months for consumption by the summer workers, who were entitled to 5 liters a day(!). Our take on this versatile style is an unfiltered french-style ale. Refreshingly spicy with hints of orange this full flavoured yet thirst quenching brew is sure to be a staple of backyard decks and bar patios alike.

The Big Bottle series, of 650mL bottles, is a limited edition so scoop it up fast before it's gone. Look for us in liquor stores across Alberta or get it fresh off the line right in the Alley Kat store.


Alley Kat's Dragon Series

Alley Kat brews their Double IPA Dragon Series for hop fans. A new single hopped Double IPA will be released every two months using a different hop variety and sold under a different color of dragon.

Current Dragon: Rainbow Dragon                                                                                      Release date: June 5th 2014                                                                
Hop Variety: Chinook, Cascade, Centennial, Simcoe, Columbus

Our latest Dragon release is a veritable explosion of hoppy goodness! Usually our Dragons are a single-hop Double IPA, but Rainbow Dragon features a collection of all our favourite hops from Dragons past: Chinook, Cascade, Centennial and Simcoe hops provide flavour and aroma, while Columbus hops are added for bittering. Alone these hops have done great things, but together they create a spectrum of hop flavour that can't be beat.
