EDMONTON, AB – Kohler Brewing is a new operation set to launch in Edmonton this spring.
The company recently held a tasting featuring three different lagers crafted by brewmaster Eric Buehner, and based on public input, they will be selecting one of the three to be their flagship Kohler Lager. The beer will be brewed under contract at to-be-determined brewery, with an aim to distribute it in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba.
Reports from the tasting suggest that Kohler is going for a mainstream Canadian lager for their first brand. No word on whether they plan to expand into further beers, or if they will be looking to open their own brewery in the future.
