About Hell's Basement Brewery
Six courageous beer lovers from Medicine Hat, their families, friends, and countless members of the community have been working tirelessly to bring fresh, local, craft beer to the hat. The dream is soon to be realized.
The brewery name is inspired by the story of Rudyard Kipling’s travels across Canada and his famous quote “This part of the country seems to have all hell for a basement, and the only trap door appears to be in Medicine Hat. And you don’t even think of changing the name of your town. It’s all your own and the only hat of its kind on earth.” – Rudyard Kipling 1907
We take pride in our community, and we are thrilled to be working with local businesses and artists to make our dream of bringing quality, fresh beer to Medicine Hat a reality!
