About Wild Rose Brewery

TWO ENTREPRENEURS, AN AIR FORCE HANGAR, AND A DREAM

The tale begins in 1996 with two entrepreneurs and a dream: to free Albertans from the tyranny of boring beer. Alan, Mike, and their enthusiastic investors (and biggest fans) aimed to put Wild Rose Beer in the hands of Albertans, certain it would win their hearts. It did. The first decade was one of epic block parties, Ultimate Frisbee tournaments, and adventure races. Kegs of fresh WR Beer abounded at each, delivered in a 1999 Yukon nicknamed “The Pony Express”. With each wild adventure, our community grew. Only true entrepreneurs would look at a WWII Air Force hangar and see a brewery. In 2006, our enthusiastic tribe donated supplies, picked up their tools and paintbrushes, and converted a 1936 Quonset hut at the Currie Barracks into a microbrewery. Our Taproom, AF23, was born.

More than two decades after Mike and Alan’s dream, Wild Rose Brewery enjoys a new, state-of-the-art facility, world-class brewers, and one of Alberta’s finest craft quality control labs. We’re proud of our award-winning creations, but our history and community make us most proud to be Alberta’s Beer.

 

AUTHENTIC. LOCAL. CRAFT.

There are a lot of great things about growing up: best-in-class quality control, world-class brewers, awesome corporate culture and a good handle on innovation. But we won’t grow up too much! Wild Rose Brewery will always remain authentic, local, and committed to craft.

 

OUR BREWERY & TAPROOM: WHERE THE MAGIC HAPPENS

Our Taproom and microbrewery are housed in AF23, part of Calgary’s Currie Barracks military base built in 1934. We suspect the building was used for top-secret experiments to determine the effects of beer and delicious food on soldiers. Now that it’s no longer top-secret, everyone can enjoy these effects themselves.
