Congratulations on winning five awards at the 2020 Alberta Beer Awards! What a fantastic accomplishment! You took home Silver for Brewery of the Year, Gold for your Railway Avenue Rye IPA, three more Silvers for your Chocolate Maple Porter, Georgetown Brown, and Ten Peaks Pale Ale!
How excited did you feel when you heard Canmore Brewing’s name announced five times?
We were pretty pumped. We watched it as a team via a group Zoom call, so there was lots of celebrating each time we took an award. We may have had some beer that night too!
How can Alberta craft beer lovers purchase your beer, and have you re-opened for onsite consumption?
We have opened the taproom as of June 17th so people can come in and enjoy a beer, and our patio is open as well! Home delivery has ended, but we've replaced it with curbside pickup for those who don’t want to come into the taproom for off-sales. You can also find our beer at local liquor stores, and we continue to shipping to Connect Logistics, so all our core beers are still available across the province in liquor stores.
Is there anything else you would like to share?
We can't wait to celebrate our wins with our awesome customers!
What is one fun fact about Canmore Brewing that people might not know?
I don’t know if it’s fun, but we’re really proud to do it – since day 1, we’ve had a First Responder Beer Policy, where all first responders get their first glass of beer in the taproom on us every day. It’s our way of thanking them for the great work they do.
