RED DEER COUNTY, AB – A unique collaborative brewing project with a hyper-local focus is now open in Alberta’s Red Deer County.
Craft Beer Commonwealth is a joint venture between two previously established Central Alberta breweries – Blindman Brewing in Lacombe and Red Hart Brewing in Red Deer County – as well as Red Shed Malting in Penfold.
Open since earlier this month in the Gasoline Alley Farmers’ Market, Craft Beer Commonwealth is focused on producing beer made with local ingredients, and also offers a rotating selection of beers from other Central Alberta breweries in its taproom.
Its launch was previewed late last year with the release of Landlock Ale (5.1% abv), a “light, crisp, aromatic pale ale” brewed using ingredients grown within 10 km of Red Deer County – including malt from Red Shed and hops from Hard Hels Hops – and developed in collaboration with all of the region’s breweries.
Craft Beer Commonwealth is located at 558 Laura Avenue in Red Deer County, and is open Friday to Sunday from 9:00 AM to 8:00 PM. For more details, see the Craft Beer Commonwealth website and Facebook page.
