COCHRANE, AB – More than three years after it was first announced, Half Hitch Brewing has launched in Cochrane, a town located just west of Calgary in southern Alberta.
Half Hitch has been founded by a family-led team that includes award winning homebrewer Chris Heier, his father Mike Heier, brother Kyle Heier and step-sister Brittney Kozloski, with several other relatives participating as shareholders.
According to Alberta beer news website The Daily Beer, the brewery’s three flagship brands – Farmer’s Daughter pale ale, Fire ‘n Fury red ale, and Shotgun Wedding brown ale – made their debut last night at Killarney’s Pub in Cochrane, and will be on tap at select bars in Calgary next week.
The Half Hitch taproom and restaurant at 10 Griffin Industrial Point #1 in Cochrane has yet to open, but should be operational later this year.
