Wild Rose Brewery began 1996. It was a dark time for beers in Alberta, as it was very difficult to find craft beer. Macrobreweries ruled the industry. The founders of Wild Rose wanted to provide people with a chance to enjoy craft beer – a return to the traditional ingredients and methods for making beer. (Fresh, no preservatives).
Built in an old airplane hanger in the Currie Barracks, the Wild Rose Brewery Taproom is a fun and unique destination getaway right in the heart of Calgary. We brew beer onsite and always have our taps loaded up with something for everyone!
Kids are welcome:
Sunday – Thursday: 11:00am – 7:00 pm
Friday – Saturday: 11:00am – 4:00pm
