GRAND PRAIRIE, AB – The first of two microbreweries planned for Grand Prairie, Alberta has opened with a unique business model.
Like most small breweries, Grain Bin Brewing has several core brands – such as Participant Special Bitter and Smoky Flats Dunkel Weizen – that are available on draught at local bars and pubs, and in growlers at the brewery. But they also offer a number of custom brewing services, including making exclusive house beers for licencees, and one-off beers for events such as weddings, parties, and charity events.
In addition, the brewery will be brewing a series of beers under the Democracy! banner that will be developed based on input from customers and released in limited runs of bottles or growlers. Some especially small-run beers will be released exclusively to those who contributed to the crowdfunding campaign that was run late last year.
Grain Bin beers are currently available at local establishments including The Den Pub & Carvery, and via growler fills at the brewery.
For more details, see the Grain Bin Facebook page, and the brewery profile that was published last November at the blog On Beer.
