Calgary’s newest nano-brewery has opened its doors just in time for fall! Two Pillars Brewery and Taproom made its grand opening over labour day weekend in the neighbourhood of Cresent Heights in Calgary, Alberta located at 910 Centre Street N.
About Two Pillars Brewery
The brewery is founded by Boaz Leung and Jacob May, friends and immigrants to Canada from different countries. “The universal language of good food and good drink became an incredible tool which tore down the walls between them and the people around them, giving them common ground to build relationships on. ” says the Two Pillars website, “The love of beer is what began the friendship between Boaz and Jacob and has become our mission at Two Pillars.”
Two Pillars is Canada’s smallest commercial brewhouse with only two kegs per brew. The brewery features a taproom with a delicious food menu filled with snacks to pair with their line of rotating beers on tap.
Two Pillars Beers on Tap
Golden Strong | 8.6% ABV
Our first beer was created to be an unassuming introduction to the wonderful world of yeast-forward beers. Brewed using an ancient yeast strain cultivated in the Ardennes region of Belgium, this beer is a modern take on a classic style. A powerful ripe fruit aroma with peppery undertones complemented by the earthy, slightly citrus flavors of Magnum and Saaz hops will both refresh the palate and warm the soul.
Wit | 5.5% ABV
A labour of love brings this witbier its bright, orange zestiness. Its light, cereal backbone giving a vibrant haze to the finish sets the tone for the blast of citrus overtones that follow. Finishing with a fizzle this beer is the essence of summer.
Blonde | 6.2% ABV
A blend of the finest Alberta barley and white wheat with a hint of spice, this blonde is both approachable and exciting. Starting with a light, biscuity base and an effervescent bite, then leaving a subtle stone fruitiness on the tongue, this beer is the perfect sipper.
Welcome to YYC, Two Pillars!
