FAQ

WHEN DID YOU OPEN?

We began manufacturing on November 21 2018 and opened our taproom on December 8, 2018. Follow along on our blog, Facebook, Twitter or Instagram for updates on new beers and events in the taproom!

Where are you located?

Our brewery, taproom and getaway is located at 505 36 Ave SE in Calgary. It's right in the heart of the north Manchester brewery district (an area known as The Barley Belt) and is a short walk from a handful of other breweries, including Banded Peak Brewing, Paddy's Barbecue and Brewery, Born Colorado Brewing and Annex Ale Project. 

What sort of beer DO you make?

All sorts! Our beer is designed to be fresh, flavourful, complex and hop-centric. Our general approach is to take the best of classic styles and elevate them through craftsmanship and an uninhibited drive for innovation into something that is one-of-a-kind. 

We will have new beer on tap as often as we can brew it. We will build and rotate our list of seasonal, one-off and barrel-aged beers so there is always a wide range of styles and new offerings available in the market and in our taproom.

Head Brewer Jonas Hurtig is an amazing brewer; you've probably already tried some of his creations from his time at Wild Rose Brewery. You won't be disappointed with his craftsmanship. 

WHEN ARE YOU OPEN?

Mon-Thu 3 to 9 | Fri 12 to 10 | Sat 11 to 10 | Sun 11 to 6

DO YOU Serve food?

We sure do! We serve light snacks that pair well with beer, including New Zealand-style meat pies, warm pretzels, charcuterie and cheeses.

DO you take private bookings?

We sure do! We'd love to host your party or gathering. Please email us for details.

DO you do growler fills?

Does a bear spit in the woods? Growlers are a great way for you to take brewery-fresh beer away to share (or not). We will be set up to have your glassware filled and out the door with our latest beer every time you visit.

Will I be able to bring my own growler?

Sure! Just make sure it's clean. A dirty growler can ruin a beer almost instantly. You will be able to buy Cabin glassware and stainless growlers in the taproom too.

HOW DO I KEEP MY GROWLER CLEAN?

It's really simple. When you've finished your beer, triple rinse your growler with hot water. Make sure your tap water is nice and hot, then fill, swirl and rinse your growler. Allow your growler to sit upside down and air dry completely.  A wet growler will grow bacteria in it - a dry growler will not. Finally, leave the cap off and allow air to circulate to reduce the chances of bacterial growth.

We'll check your growler when you bring it in and make sure it is clean. We will not pour our beer into a dirty growler. If we have time, we'll try and clean it for you, but if it is heavily soiled it may be time to kiss your funky friend goodbye and get a new one.

Can I bring my dog to the taproom?

We're dog owners and dog lovers, but the terms of our lease prohibit all animals - so that means you have to leave your cat, parrot and snake at home with Rover too, sorry.

Can I bring my kid to the taproom?

We have five kids between us, so we're used to having little ones around. Well-behaved children are welcome, as long as they are with an adult or guardian (who have to be well-behaved too...). We have Lego, kids snacks, high chairs and a change table to make your visit as easy and relaxed as possible.

what's with the brown rainbow graphics?

Our brand work was done by local design superstars Daughter Creative. The focus is on reinterpreting those nostalgic patterns that show up at every old-school cabin - deckchair weave (guaranteed to leave marks on your legs), the ubiquitous green garden hose, and, of course, that groovy brown rainbow.

I have a question - how can i get an answer?

Please, get in touch! We'd love to hear from you. You can email us at hello@cabinbrewing.ca, phone 587 966 9696 or connect through our Facebook, Twitter or Instagram accounts. And of course, once the brewery is open, we'd love for you to come in, grab a beer, and ask all the questions you want.

How can I learn more about Cabin?
