Big Rock Brewery, Calgary

Immerse yourself in the production of Harvest Ale from grain to glass at Big Rock Brewery. In 1984, founder Ed McNally at age 60 endeavored to create something different, an option for beer lovers looking for a deliberately different brew. Ed struck gold with a beer he coined "Traditional," but the brewery has gone on to brew much more. The signature series now has 13 different beers alone, along with drafts. Join the knowledgeable guides for a tour of the brewery and a sample of their strikingly different beers.

  • The restaurant is just fantastic. Great options, very good atmosphere, reasonable prices, and prompt service. Meals are prepared quickly. Staff is positive. More importantly, the facility produces extremely high quality beer brewed with locally sourced ingredients. This business engages in the community and is worth supporting.
  • Went to brew beer and got a full days worth of activities. I've never had the chance to see a big production for beer before so I was in awe. Food was great same goes for beer. Will be back again for sure.
