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.
MEET OUR HEAD BREWER: MIRANDA BATTERINK
My love of craft beer and the culture of creativity emerging from the industry led me to pursue my own role in the world of brewing. I studied at Niagara College's Brewmaster and Brewery Operations Management program with the goal of moving to the mountains after graduation and combining my two loves - great beer and the great outdoors! I love the flavour complexities of the craft beer world and the focus on community that the industry has become synonymous with.
My favourite styles to drink changes with the seasons (I can never say no to a Hef in the summer or a Porter in the winter), but my favourite beer to brew in Banff is our Revered Rundle Stout - it's perfectly suited to our water profile and makes the whole building smell like roasted coffee and rich cocoa.
