CALGARY, AB – According to several recent media reports – including print stories in the Calgary Herald and FFWD, and a blog post from On Beer – Calgary will soon be home to a new craft brewing company, Village Brewery.
With the backing of six partners including former Big Rock executives Jim Button and Tim Duffin, Village Brewery is currently under construction in an industrial area in the southeast of Calgary, with an aim to have beer in production and available by late fall.
The brewery will initially be a draught-only operation, with kegs available to licensees and growlers for consumers, plus an on-site tasting room for samples. Bottled product may follow in the longer term, and a retail storefront in a more central part of the city is planned within two years.
More details about the brewery will be announced here on CBN as its opening approaches.
