We can probably assume that everyone, regardless of whether they like beer or not, is at least familiar with the most common brands of beer available in Calgary. But here’s the question — are you familiar with craft beer as well?

If you aren’t, then here’s what you need to know: Craft beer is nothing like what you think it is. Do you like commercially produced beer? If you are here then we can probably assume that you do. And because of that, we can also assume that you will love craft beer.

Yes, there are many different types of craft beer out there. But that’s the fun part — knowing this fact gives you plenty of incentive to go out there and explore the ones available to you. Craft beer is different because it is produced by a micro-brewery. The latter is a type of brewery that uses either “traditional” or “innovative” ingredients in their brews. They produce beer that taste completely different than commercially made one, and beer that focuses on quality before anything else.

Tasting craft beer is an experience in itself. If you enjoy beer, then you simply can’t spend your life without trying at least one craft beer.

If you live in Calgary or surrounding areas, then chances are that you are familiar with the Minhas Micro Brewery. The latter is a brewery that has been producing quality craft beer for over two decades. One of our most popular products is the Lazy Mutt Gluten Free ale — our award-winning lager beer that is now available to people who cannot consume gluten. This crisp, refreshing beer is one of the best Calgary craft brews and one that every beer lover in Canada should sample at least once.
