Meet the BEER! And whether you enjoy it in house with us, or find it at your favourite pubs and beer shops, we hope the descriptions below help you choose wisely!
And don't forget, ALL OF OUR BEERS have been treated to remove the gluten...ask us about it!
1882 Okotoks Golden Ale
Named to commemorate the year when settlers set up on the banks of our beautiful sheep creek (when their oxen drifted away in a good old Alberta snow storm), this light golden ale was brewed as our Inagural Commercial Release, for all who have found their way to this town that they call home and to the visitors who come to enjoy it.
Brewed to be classically blonde, with expressions of honey dew melon, strawberry and citrus, this deceptively light beer is flavourful, refreshing and crisp to the last drop.
Mister Pink Radler
We couldn’t have anticipated a more flavourful half-beer, lower alcohol beverage than when we created our Mister Pink Radler. Blending grapefruit soda with our 1882 Okotoks Golden Ale, already full of citrus, strawberry and melon flavour and aroma, Mister Pink is a fruity, refreshing radler, perfect for those looking for a little less “beer” and a modest level of tart sweetness. 9 times of out 10 our "wine" drinkers choose Mister Pink.
Oh and in case you were wondering, only the manliest of men drink Mister Pink!
O'Finally Irish Red Ale
Hub Town's O'Finally Irish Red was the first beer brewed in our Okotoks facility and holds the record for longest brew at 21 hrs - see where it got it's name? And although that was a very long time, we know it was worth every minute, because this easy drinking, deep copper red ale, has a malty backbone and a candy-like caramel sweetness with just a touch of toastiness, making it a long standing fan favourite.
Sheep Heid - SCOTCH Ale
It was the winter of 1943 when Christian Engel was stationed in Edinburgh, Scotland for a short stay, before heading to Italy during the Second World War. During that stay, Christian met and fell in love with Catherine Archibald, a beautiful and feisty barmaid, working at the Sheep Heid Inn, the oldest surviving public house in Scotland, established in 1360. After the war, the two moved to Canada where they started their family...Mark’s (owner) family! This Christmas Scotch Ale was brewed for grandma and grandpa!
Get ready to enjoy a plethora of fig and dates, followed by subtle, toasted caramel and a warming finish that tastes like it feels to be wrapped in a loved ones arms.
LAGERHEAD Bavarian Lager
Ever heard of Loggerheads? The definition is: "two or more people or groups that disagree with each other strongly." It seems that today, we have more loggerheads than we have ever seen before, which is why we created Lagerhead...a beer everyone can agree on!
This Ultra SMOOTH, Bavarian Lager is going to knock your lager-loving socks off with it's crystal clear, deep golden hue, sweet malty backbone and slightly crisp finish! In fact, it's so good that 40 year anchorman Darrel Janz told us it's the "best lager he's ever had!"
Colour Blind Belgian-Style IPA
West Coast IPA meets Belgian Witbier!!
This IPA has reached the pinnacle of being a clean and crisp, hop forward beer by marrying two very distinct and popular beer styles into one. Besides its crushability, this IPA has a light enough body that the citrusy/piney hop flavour and bitterness shines through to keep your hoppy attention! And yes you will notice the sweet, fruity esters on the back end of every sip...you're welcome!
Don't Hassel The Hefe
**SILVER AWARD WINNER in the Alberta Beer Awards**
This cloudy, pale AWARD WINNING beer with a pillowy soft head stacked on top, seriously pushes the boundaries of the classic German hefeweizen, much like its namesake, pushes the boundaries of awesomeness!
With subdued clove and a bountiful presence of sweet banana esters (naturally produced with an incredible german yeast strain), we have brewed this light, wheaty beer to challenge what you thought a hefeweizen could be.
We all have a weird uncle and this one is Hefe's!
Even with his rich mohogany colour and malty, munich backbone, Hefe's WeirDunkel still enjoys that bounty of banana and clove that you know and love in your German wheat beers, but this Dunkelwiezen is just different enough to keep you entertained for hours!
Hoppyright Infringement HAZY NEIPA
Previously released as "Hazed & Confused IPA" this hazed up, fruit explosion, built around a multitude of citrus-centric hops (that we gathered up last minute like mad scientists when our hop order didn't make it to us in time) sold out in no time flat and created enough "buzz" to garner the attention of a brewery way out in Eastern Canada, selling a brew under the same name!
Now known as "hoppyright Infringement," we re-released this wildly popular, fruity New England style IPA that is brimming with citrusy hop flavour and aroma while expressing a sweet candy background at its peak! Known to have very low bitterness and an incredible creamy white head, this beer has been a huge fan favourite since day one!
This wildly popular, fruity New England style IPA is brimming with citrusy hop flavour and aroma that also expresses a sweet candy background at its peak! Known to have very low bitterness and an incredible creamy white head, this beer has been a huge fan favourite since day one!
Prodigal Hon-ey Brown Ale
This dark copper English Brown Ale is as smooth as it gets with just a hint of local, sweet Chinook honey to balance out the refreshing, medium malt body that makes this beer a winner among all who try it. But be prepared because one glass of this caramelly delight just won't be enough!
Nightmare OFF Elma Street RED IPA
If you're as old as we are, you'll remember Freddy and the catchy tune..."one, two Freddy's coming for you...three, four better lock your door..."
This BLOOD RED IPA is not the gentle red ale you've known and loved...instead it finds it's way into your hop-loving nightmares with a fresh cut of citrusy hops and a malty, caramel/toffee backbone, confusing you into thinking, "is this real?" But don't worry, this beer does not have a bitter bite to it like some other halloween brews..it's smooth like the edges of Freddy's razors and bound to leave you with more than just a memory of it!
This brew is only available each year during our "Nightmare OFF Elma Street" halloween event, between October 16-31st! But don't worry, just like Freddy, it will always come back.
I Dream in TANGERINE - NEIPA
This juicy, sweet, tangerine hop forward New England IPA is about to transform your dreams into fields of tangerine trees with every sip, making this smooth drinker a winning choice for even the non-IPA drinkers!
Alberta's Great Out S'mores Milk Stout
In Alberta, we are blessed with outdoor beauty as far as the eye can see, so why not make this silky smooth stout, oozing with flavours of chocolate, marshmallow, graham cracker, and even a touch of smoke, be your outdoor adventure companion wherever you go?
Fort Knox - Belgian Golden Strong Ale
**GOLD WINNER in Canada Beer Cup**
Imagine a steel fence surrounding a property filled with landmines, electric fences and machine guns guarding an almost unbelievable vaulted treasure...that's the kind of protection needed for a beer like this.
Brilliantly bright, hugely effervescent and of course rich gold in colour, this Belgian inspired beer enjoys sweet, late-summer pear on the nose and a luscious, fruity and ever so slightly spicy flavour, with complexity layered throughout as it finishes crisp and dry, leaving you hunting for another sip of this treasure!
Mexican Lime Lager
This Mexican Lime Lager is the colour of sunshine, crystal clear and enjoyed with a gentle dose of lime, making it crisp enough to cut through the heat of a hot summer day, and bring visions of the beaches of Mexico on a cold one.
Berry Manly RASPBERRY Belgian Blonde
This beautiful, dark pink beer was brewed as a colaboration between Hub Town and Prairie Dog Brewing, during the Pink Boots Brew in March. The collection of ladies who contributed to this beer were happy to name it "Berry Manly," to remind the guys that even a fruit-forward belgian beer like this, wrapped up all in pink, would be manly enough for them to drink too!
Prepare yourself, because this Belgian Ale is about to knock your raspberry loving socks right off, with a boatload of raspberries, easy drinking nature and crisp, dry finish. But remember, this isn't just some "fruity" beer...Berry Manly is a true Belgian Blonde at heart and will make you feel like the raspberry truck hit you if you don't restrain yourself!
This American Lager hits all the high notes by being the tastiest lager in your beer fridge while also showing the deep connection we feel to our amazing junior hockey team and talent that has come out of the Okotoks Oilers and moved on to the NHL. And if it's good enough for Ron MacLean, it's good enough for all the hockey fans out there! Make sure to collect ALL the cans and have a piece of hockey history!
Light, refreshing and easy drinking as the day is long, this beer will be the one you look for over and over again.
Tropical STAYcation - Pale Ale
Staycations are all the rage as we spend our leisure time sipping tasty brews on our patio or on our front drive, in the warm Alberta sun, so we thought why not brew a beer that would help you escape to the tropics until we're allowed to seek them out again!
This deep golden, double dry hopped beer with ever so slight opacity, is sure to kickstart your staycation with visions of your favourite sandy beach at sunset. And if that isn't enough, the fresh, sweet mango aroma and gentle flavour will! When you reach the bottom of your glass, the crisp, clean finish will conclude your staycation feeling like your feet have been in the ocean the whole time!
The LEGLESS Porter - Imperial Porter
This GIANT Imperial Porter, has the power to warm you through the long Alberta winters…and “Legless” is exactly what it will make you if not enjoyed in moderation!
Get ready for an uncannily smooth, roasty, rich, malty-sweet beer, with a surprisingly crisp, clean finish that warms you from the inside out with its 9.9% ABV! It’s BIG and it’s BEAUTIFUL, from head to toe…and in the taproom for a limited time!
**GOLD and BRONZE Medal Winner at Alberta Beer Awards**
This beloved beer is here to welcome back those hot summer days when you needed a crisp, light beer to quench your thirst while tantalizing your taste buds! But lets face it, this AWARD WINNING BEER is going to taste good any darn time you want it!
Perfectly paired with a slice of orange, this pale golden, foggy Witbier, with a solid inch of foamy white head is about to become a favourite in your beer fridge once again, with its orange and coriander additions and that hint of sweet honey that you weren't quite expecting.
ABV: 5.5 %
Never had craft beer before? Try this one...what you don't realize is craft brewers are just as good (as "those guys") at making the crystal clear, golden American Lagers that so many of us grew up with! With just enough hops to balance the sweet light-malt background, and support the crisp, refreshing finish that this highly effervescent beer style is known for, this is the beer you already know and love...and if the name doesn't help jog your memory, the taste will!
Meet the HUB TOWN (Gangster) Family's Newest Addition...The GOSEfather Cherry Gose...a beer best served cold!
With a touch of salt and a boatload of montmorency cherries, not only will your TART-buds be satisfied, the red wine notes and taste of Mama's Cherry Pie, will make this beer an offer you can't refuse!
Skinny Sipper IPA
Introducing Skinny Sipper IPA - the perfect brew for those who want to have their beer and drink it too!
Get ready for coconut, pineapple and mango notes to hit your senses as this tropical IPA delivers on taste, while being light in more ways than one! Lighter in calories (just 103 calories in a standard serving), lighter in alcohol than most IPAs, gluten reduced (like all of our beers), and light in bitterness, making this the easiest drinking IPA you'll try, and the perfect beach companion!
It's a lemon-lime twist on a traditional German wheat beer that is bound to make purists cringe. But to the adventurers looking for a thirst quenching brew, that has a citrusy kick in every sip, this version of our GOLD MEDAL WINNING hefeweizen, is exactly what they've been looking for!
Santa's Little Helper MILK STOUT
Like Santa hitting the skies on Christmas Eve, we know you too will be busy readying for the big day. So wouldn't it be great to have a little "helper" on your side? Creamy with a rich, dark, chocolatey backbone, gentle notes of vanilla and lots of roasty/nuttiiness, this beer has good dose of Christmas spirit, to help you navigate your way through the holidays!
