Cold Garden Brewing’s East Calgary Lager
About the Brew:
A Vienna lager with a crisp conventional base. The beer is focused around a toasted malt center and whispers of floral hop flavour and aroma which parlay into a slight malt sweetness that joins the party at the end. This is a lager that rolls with some flavour. It can be a gateway beer for the craft averse or a crushable craft lager for the aficionado who needs to come down off a humulone high. | Specs: 27/5.2%
Cold Garden’s Story:
Cold Garden Beverage Company is a Calgary-based microbrewery. A love of craft beer and a passing comment in a university classroom planted the idea years ago and the concept has been growing ever since. The brewery has put down roots in the vibrant community of Inglewood, hoping to breathe new life into what was once the brewing district of Calgary. Cold Garden brings a casual and eclectic vibe to the community, along with a lineup of traditional and more...eccentric beers.

Travelling down the tracks from the West Coast comes the Railyard IPA. Stunning floral aromatics, classic orange peel & grapefruit citrus palate & finishes with a hint of pine.

Railyard Brewing are dedicated to creating quality craft beers and their brewers are passionate about innovation and taste. The craft brew industry is a dynamic industry and they wanted to showcase that vibrant spirit by combining great craft beer with an artistic vibe.
The combination of malt freight cars and graffiti art inspired them to create Railyard Brewing. The artistic design on their products and in the tasting room/event space is a tribute to the creative talent of the rail car graffiti artists. By decorating the rail cars they have created a moving exhibition showcasing their art for all of us to enjoy.
Railyard Brewing opened in December 2017 and thanks to the hard-working team, and loyal customers they've been growing ever since. They offer innovative small batches and a line of excellent mainstay beers. Join them in the taproom, located near Calgary Airport, for some great tasting beer and check-out the unique taproom/event space.

Revival Brewcade's Story:
Revival Brewcade is a concept that has been nearly 40 years in the making. Owners James and Jamie were born in Nova Scotia and grew up during the era where dropping coins into the local arcades was common after school. In the late 90s James and Jamie met in the music scene. James, a successful entrepreneur and Jamie, a home brewer set out on separate paths. James opened several candy stores under the Gummi Boutique brand. Jamie carried out his career as a Software Engineer and began home brewing in 2008. Years later James and Jamie met again in Calgary and began discussing the idea of craft beer and arcades. James had frequented many arcade bars all over the U.S., and likewise Jamie with craft breweries. "We wanted to bring an authentic experience to people seeking full flavoured craft beer and retro arcades". From here Revival Brewcade was born.
