Brewery Food & Drink
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. For travelers who use our world travel planner, Calgary holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Big Rock Brewery and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
