CALGARY, AB – Wild Rose Brewery has announced that the lease on its current location has been extended past an expected closure date early next year, allowing them continue operations there while also opening a new and larger production brewery elsewhere in Calgary.
As reported here in CBN back in February, Wild Rose was given notice by Canada Lands Company that the lease on its 8,000 square foot brewery and taproom in a former airplane hangar on the Currie Barracks site would be ending in February 2014 due to extensive redevelopment that is set to take place in the area. But thanks to a deal signed in late September, the closure has been delayed until February 2015, and the location will remain open as a “innovation brew house to create unique brews available only in the Taproom.”
In the meantime, work continues on a new facility in a 40,000 square foot warehouse in the Foothills Industrial Park area, where production of most Wild Rose brands will be moved. The new brewery is expected to by in operation in December.
