About Big Rock Brewery

In 1985, Ed McNally founded Big Rock to buck the time’s beer trends. Three bold, European-inspired offerings—Bitter, Porter and Traditional—launched an industry at a time heavy on easy-drinking lagers and light on flavor. Today, our ten signature beers, ongoing seasonals, four ciders and custom-crafted private label are passionately brewed in Calgary, Vancouver and Toronto, bringing quality and consistency to craft beer drinkers across the country.
