Just three Red Deer locals that started brewing in basements and garages. Our flavour profiles have evolved over the years, but we still remain loyal to the almighty IPA. Our brewery's focus lies in the small-batch variety concept, to consistently offer something for everyone within our taproom. It's an honour to share our beer with you. We hope you love it as much as we do.
Sawback represents the origin of the Red Deer River, our city's water source. Every brewery needs water, and every river has a story. The Red Deer River's story begins in the Canadian Rockies on the Sawback Mountain Range. That's where our water comes from, and that's what goes into our beer.
Quite simply, we are passionate about fresh, local craft beer. We understand true craft beer is measured in quality, not quantity, and the backbone of all good craft beer begins with a quality grain bill. This crucial foundation is made possible by our local Alberta farmers that provide us with the worlds best barley, right out of our own backyard.
