Mid-Summer news

Hello interworld. 

Time for another Dandy update. 

The Grisette is heading out to shelves all over Calgary this week. Keep your eye out. This beer is the perfect buddy for hot summer days. Bright and Fresh with a slight Belgian kick, you can't go wrong! This beer will be available exclusively at select bottle shops in Calgary and Edmonton(later this week). 

There are some really fresh and fun beers coming down the line including a Vermont Style Pale Ale, an American style Pale Mild, and one hell of an IPA. 

Also, be on the look out for new hats, shirts, and growlers (the baby howler has landed) hitting our shelves really soon here. It just may be the most useless growler you'll ever buy.

In other news, the tasting room is cruising along in the summer sun. If you haven't had a chance

Talk soon beloveds. 


Big update here on July 6th!

The "Summertime(and the living's easy) raspberry sour is now on shelves. Grab it while you can. Less than 80 cases were made. We're out at the brewery...so if you see it, grab it!

Today we launch "Ain't LIfe Strange" our newest Dandy Edition. It's a big ol' Imperial Stout that has aged out nicely. It definitely has another few months, so grab this to fill the cellar! It was a super fun brew day, hanging out with Brett and Lisa from ToolShed brewing this! 

Also, we have a few bottles kickin around of our "Smuggler's Ale" a red ale. 

Other news is that now have extended hours. Wed/Thurs/Fri 3-10pm, Sat 12-10pm and Sunday 12-6pm!

Rolling into the Summer Season!

Hello All. 

Quick updates. 

#1 our M*A*S*H beers are now on tap. Malt And Single Hops are where we get the AWESOME names from. The first (Donald Sutherland as Hawkeye Pierce) is a Jester Hop Extra Pale. It is a fruitier hop that is the UK attempt at an American style hop. Notes of tart strawberry, slight passion fruit, and light hints of traditional UK earthiness. A really fun fresh hop.

The second (Elliot Gould as Trapper John) is a fusion hop Extra Pale. Fusion is a really interesting hop. It's a blend. At the end of the experimental growing season, after all analytics are done, all the hops are blended together into a single pellet (Fusion!)...it's different every year, and always fun to see whats happening. 

#2 Summer Ale moves out at as we speak on draught in Calgary and will be hitting shelves in bottles next week! It's amazing this year! Don't forget the launch on June 11th at 2pm...at Container Bar! 

#3 Look for some really fun bottles coming down the line! 

#4....Big event news on Wednesday.....
