We brewed this special beer using a wheat ale base and started with a lactic fermentation to give it a nice tart taste. We then fermented with our renowned ale yeast and added bushels of raspberries to produce this scrumptious Work of Tart.
Lactobacillus, an active ingredient in many fermented foods, was added to this brew to give it a sharp, slightly sour profile.
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.
