Alley Kat Brewery and 8 Wired Brewing of New Zealand have collaborated to brew a unique porter using ingredients from Alberta and New Zealand. From Alberta comes 2 row malt, water, yeast, Ryan’s honey, and saskatoon berries. From New Zealand comes Nelson Sauvin hops and manuka wood smoke.
We teamed up with The Common on this amber coloured raspberry sour. Since it’s not quite summer, we wanted to make a maltier sour with more body than a typical sour. We fermented it on raspberries to provide fruitiness and complexity to this collaboration brew.
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.
