Find premium craft beer made and sold by local Calgarians at Village Brewery, winning Best Local Beer in 2018. Although the brewery is less than a decade old, its founders bring more than 160 years of combined experience in the Alberta beer industry. This experience plus a quality product brings people in from across the city, the province, even the country. Many of the brewery’s products are made using predominantly local ingredients like malt barley, wheat and other nearby grown ingredients. This has formed connections between the brewery and local community associations and garden organizations so that they can use and grow ingredients in a local and meaningful way.

Small, flavourful batches of Village’s brews have quickly become a Calgary favourite. The brewery is run by a wide variety of Calgary CEOs, artists and people simply passionate about brewing the next great bottle of beer. The company acts as a liaison between local artists and communities, going out of their way to support neighbouring organizations, events and communities in Calgary. As if the taste of the liquor wasn’t enough, Village works hard to be one of Calgary’s most outspoken, interactive beers brands out there.
