My sister and I also believe in being socially responsible in all facets of our business. We were the first brewing company in Canada to voluntarily put a Management Warning on all our cans and bottles that we produce. The Management Warning on the cans reads as; “MANAGEMENT WARNING: Please do not drink and drive – ever. Expectant mothers should avoid drinking alcoholic products. Enjoy this product responsibly – Respect yourself and others”. We have recently put this on all our products because we believe that as a responsible brewer and citizen of this country, it is important that we do our part to educate Canadians on the harms caused by alcohol. We were recognized for this initiative and were awarded FASD (Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder) Recognition Award.
The Minhas Micro Brewery in Calgary culminates 15 years of a dream that siblings Ravinder and Manjit Minhas had to place a genuine Canadian brewery in the city they were born and raised (and still call home). The Minhas’ goal was to place a state-of-art Craft Brewery at which they could not only produce some of their very popular and award winning Canadian beer brands such as Boxer, Clear Creek Ice and Mountain Crest. But also to experiment and make some amazing Canadian craft beers such as Chocolate Cherry Stout, Authentic IPA ( What is an IPA you ask, you will learn on the tour!), Hazelnut Bock and many more! So come and join us at one of Calgary’s largest Canadian breweries, for one of the best Canadian brewery tours and taste the best beer in Canada! While you are here, join us at our award winning tap room Pizza Brew.

The Liquor business was great but our dream, and the engineers in us, wanted us to be in the Canadian beer business, so in 2002 we incorporated a company called Mountain Crest Brewing Company (MCBC) to create and sell premium beer at discounted prices. Upon entering the Alberta market, Mountain Crest Classic Lager (our flagship brand) had instant success and quickly became a household name, arguably one of the most popular beers in Canada. The consumers loved the beer so much that they suggested the slogan ‘Damn Good Beer’ and we happily obliged. The “Damn Good Beer” slogan can now be found on many of our Canadian beers – including Mountain Crest Classic Lager, Mountain Crest Blonde and Clear Creek Ice. Of course, we also have another 20 craft and session types of brews in almost all genres of beers produced in the world.
We, Manjit and Ravinder Minhas (siblings) are Petroleum Engineers by profession, were born and raised in Calgary and still call Calgary home. My older sister Manjit (age 19 at the time) and I, Ravinder, at the age of 18 decided to start a company called Mountain Crest Liquors Inc. (MCLI). The mandate of Mountain Crest Liquors was to bring design, create recipes, and market high quality premium liquor and sell them at a discounted price in Alberta. We started with rum, rye, gin, blended scotch and vodka. Things went well for us but our big break came when Tequila prices in Canada sky-rocketed due to a ‘so-called’ blue agave shortage in Mexico (the main ingredient in making tequila). We quickly secured a supply of tequila at an amazing price and gained a large market share of the Tequila business in Alberta.
