WHO WE ARE
Banff Ave Brewing Co. was founded in 2010, five years after the opening of its sister brewpub Jasper Brewing Co. In a similar spirit as Jasper, the brewpub has developed into a beer culture hotbed for locals and tourists alike. Drawing strength from the dynamic Banff community and inspiration from the Rocky Mountains and wildlife, Banff Ave Brewing Co. is a central hub not to be missed in the National Parks.
2020 award winner. Banff's year round patio bier for bluebird days. Alpine sunshine in a glass. Spiced with a hint of citrus and coriander for a crisp and tart finish. Just do wit.
2021 award winner. A dark schwarzbier that drinks light and familiar. The local's favourite. Roasted German malts add character, flavour and colour to this classic German style beer.
RIDE OR DRY
Ultra dry, ultra crisp, ultra rad. A low-cal light pilsner for ultra active lifestyles. Bright, fruity and playful with no bitterness, and only 95 calories per can! Hopped with Nelson Sauvin hops for a flavourful and unique white grape character.
MEET OUR HEAD BREWER:
I studied at Bishop’s University for both my undergrad in chemistry and my master certificate of science of brewing. After a couple years of living the lab rat life, I wanted more from my workdays and dreamed to find a job in the mountains. At that moment, I realized I could still use my science background and explore the craft beer industry. There is most likely a brewery in a fun town with great outdoors for all my hobbies! I was always passionate about craft beer before changing career. I was lucky enough to go to university where one of the first craft breweries was located.
If I had to pick my favourite style of beer to drink, I would have to say a porter/stout but I’m always a sucker for a great sour on the patio. However, I don’t discriminate against the other style of beers! I love to be able to play around with the ingredients and create all the different beers. It's always exciting to brew a new beer, however my favourite beer to brew at Banff Ave Brewing Co is the Mt. Rundle Stout - who doesn’t want to start the day with the smell of roast coffee and rich cocoa?
