Eighty-Eight Brewing Opening This Month in Calgary

CALGARY, AB – A new brewery inspired by “a pretty darn good year” is getting set to open its doors in Calgary’s Ramsay neighbourhood.

Eighty-Eight Brewing is named in honour of the year that Calgary hosted the Winter Olympics, when…

Hair was big, tunes had attitude and a small city was finding its place on the world stage. It was the start of something bigger. Eighty-Eight Brewing Company will make beers in the same spirit of excitement for what’s next. Always big flavors, sometimes a little weird, best enjoyed together.

Eighty-Eight will be opening its retail shop and two-floor taproom at 1070 – 2600 Portland St SE in Calgary on Wednesday August 22nd at 3:00 PM, with “Miami nights upstairs, dirty 80’s downstairs.”

Two beers from Eighty-Eight – Night Gallery NEPA (5.5% abv, 44 IBU), named after a legendary Calgary nightclub; and Cassette Table Beer (4.3% abv, 29 IBU), a nod to the preferred music format of the ’80s – are available now at select local bars and liquor stores.
