CALGARY, AB – Capping off a busy month that has included the debut of several new beers and the unveiling of a new look for all of its brands, Wild Rose Brewery officially opened its new and much larger brewhouse with a launch party last night.
The almost 40,000 square foot facility located in southeast Calgary is almost five times the size of Wild Rose’s now secondary home in Currie Barracks, with a brewing capacity that will roughly quadruple the brewery’s output.
Bill McKenzie, president of Wild Rose, tells the Calgary Herald that the Currie Barracks location – which had its lease extended to February 2015 last fall – will remain open for now as “an innovation place” for the creation of more experimental, one-off and seasonal beers, while the majority of production, including all bottled product, moves to the new location.
An additional Calgary Herald article from beer writer Jason van Rassel gives more details on the opening and Wild Rose’s future plans.
