The Brewery

Our Micro-Brewery is  the 4th oldest brewery in Alberta, with a current capacity of 18,000 hectoliters (5.1 million bottles) annually. Each brew is done as a small batch so we can keep a close eye on a brew’s quality. Wherever possible Alley Kat works with local products and local suppliers.

Our Team

We're working to raise the bar of Craft Beer in Alberta!

Alley Kat is a team of people passionate about beer. It’s what we have in common. Beer isn’t a widget and it shouldn’t be made in a factory. We believe the best beers come from the hands of people who care about their craft, who understand the subtleties of ingredients, and who want to make each batch the best it can be.

Recycled Grain

All of our spent grains are recycled by being used as cattle feed.


Saving Water

We like reusing: excess hot water from our brewing process is captured and re-used. All of our excess plastics and cardboard are recycled.


Preservative Free

Alley Kat beers are naturally brewed without using any stabilizers or preservatives and are not pasteurized.


We use recycled glass bottles. Our bottles are part of a brewers’ bottle pool and are reused up to 20 times before they are crushed and made into other products.
