Tool Shed Opens Production Brewery in Calgary


CALGARY, AB – The Calgary Herald reports that six months after signing a lease for the space, Tool Shed Brewing has brewed the first batch of beer at its own production facility in Calgary.

Launched in 2013 by Graham Sherman and Jeff Orr as a contract operation with its beers being made at Dead Frog Brewery in B.C., Tool Shed was expected to run under that model for several years, until changes to the minimum production requirements for beers in Alberta that were implemented in December 2013 allowed them to scale down their original vision for the brewery and speed up plans to open their own location.

Sherman and Orr are brewing on a 25 hectolitre brewing system commissioned from DME Brewing Solutions in PEI, and once the first batches of beer are ready and final approvals come through, they plan to open a tasting room and retail store at the brewery.
