It started over a beer… the idea that germinated and grew into who we are today. The conversation that was born out of an absolute passion for what we do. The desire to be the leaders in our industry. Over many months, we discussed how we would separate ourselves from others in the craft beer, wine and spirits industry. We talked about the experience we would envision and love to have if we were to venture into a liquor facility.
It started over a beer…
At that time, no location in Calgary could give us everything we wanted to experience. We envisioned passionate staff, genuinely loving what they do. We envisioned knowledge; people that were very knowledgeable and educated, but more importantly, could share that knowledge in a way that was warm and inviting, never intimidating. We envisioned supporting local. We wanted to support local producers wherever and whenever possible. Focusing on local craft beer producers, distillers, meaderies and wineries. We envisioned sharing. We wanted to share these products with others wherever possible, allowing our customers to sample the local fruits of their labour.
We found our vision.
We envisioned educating. We saw our facility as a venue and a pulpit to educate by offering numerous beer, wine and spirits courses, seminars and tastings that would arm our customers with the tools of knowledge, and allow them to make more educated decisions with absolute confidence. We envisioned the conversation. We are very passionate about what we do, and we like to share that with others.
We found our passion.
The lengthy conversations about craft beer, wine and spirits are what drives us. We wanted others to feel comfortable engaging us in these conversations and we encourage it! When we finally put all the building blocks in place, we knew we would have something special. This is the end result. There is now a place where you can go to have it all.
We found our location.
You get the passion, the knowledge, the conversation, the product to try, the 24 foot tasting bar that plays host to weekly tastings and events, the 8 tap growler bar that features unique and local craft beers to sample free of charge, the incredible selection, with over 900 craft beers, thousands of wines, a superb scotch and whiskey selection, and fantastic deals every day. There you have it, our reality born out of a vision and those that were passionate enough to support that vision.
