The Establishment Brewing Co.  Serious beer. Not so serious people. Now open in @barleybeltyyc

Introducing our Brewer's Tap! ⁣

We're brewing some fun, ultra small batches on the homebrew rig that used to live in the basement of the original Establishment house in Erlton. Mike spent a decade brewing over 300 beers on his 40L homebrew rig, and you better believe that his set up didn't end up in the trash. We'll have a tap dedicated to the beery creations being developed on this system so keep an eye out for announcements when we have something new to try.⁣

Kicking this series off, we have Brandon's Hefeweizen, his take on this classic German wheat beer. Best enjoyed young, and it won't last long. Stop by our taproom to try some! ⁣

Fun fact: it's the 100th anniversary of Bauhaus, a creative movement that has heavily influenced the brand and aesthetic of our brewery. ⁣⁣
Our logo is deconstructed into circles that hint at the honesty of The Establishment's product; no bells and whistles, just great beer. ⁣⁣
The circles intersect: a tulip glass, a barrel, a Venn diagram of a blending of styles, friends, ingredients, the old, and the new. It may look like any one of these things, while not intentionally looking like anything.⁣⁣
Huge shoutout to @benjamagnus and the team @daughter_creative for guiding us down this creative path and for creating the raddest logo out there. And of course to @fort.architecture for taking the concept to a whole other level in our amazing taproom. ⁣⁣
Oh, and go check out today's Google doodle for more info on Bauhaus. ⁣⁣

Sure Footing - British Best Bitter⁣

A classic take on a British pub ale, most indubitably quaff-able, best enjoyed with all the lads. Tipping under the 5% mark this ale is super drinkable but also packs a solid malt flavour from Maris Otter and Crystal malts. Floral and earthy hop flavour and fruity esters balance the malt. Named after the dodgy floor at the original Establishment... ⁣👟👟🕳️💥

Malts: Maris Otter, Crystal, Amber⁣
Hops: Fuggles, Loral⁣
Yeast: WYeast West Yorkshire 1469

We won't discriminate against anyone’s taste of music. ⁣

As long as it's good. ⁣😉

Thirst For Knowledge - California Common (NOT a Steam Beer)

Our take on a San Francisco classic style: California Common. Toasty malts, caramel, fruity esters, with a balancing woodsy hop flavour and aroma from Northern Brewer hops.
This is definitely NOT a Steam Beer, because that’s a trademark term. Calling this a Steam Beer would be bad. So we’re not going to even mention steam in the name, or suggest that it has anything to do with steam.

Malts: 2-row,Vienna, Caramel
Hops: Northern Brewer
Yeast: WLP Kölsch
Steam: Definitely not

Mark your calendars, you don't wanna miss this. The @barleybeltyyc knows how to throw a party. ⁣

I promised Dave I wouldn’t say Juicy AF, HAZE 4 DAZE, or use the phrase “so many hops we broke the bank”. 😎

Sky Rocket launches on tap today! Join us with DJ Hezloop spinning juicy vinyl beats in our taproom starting at 4:00. 🍍🍊🚀🍻🎶 Malt: Maris Otter, Oats, Wheat
Yeast: Escarpment Foggy London
Hops: You bet

We're down to the last few bottles of our Hibiscus Brett Saison. If you want one you'd better get here asap.
Fun fact: the labels on our first two bottle releases feature work from local #YYC artist Kate Schutz.⁣⁣
Kate's label designs for the Establishment's release of Brett Saison two ways were inspired by Chinese scroll paintings and the old AMA road map in the back of the car. While the hibiscus flowers are a nod to a traditional, classic time where artists studied exotic blooms, the aerial view of Manchester Industrial (YYC's Barley Belt and home to the Establishment), is sourced from Google Maps. ⁣

Kate lives and works in Calgary, Alberta where she paints memories: her own and those of others around her. Her work is in private and public collections across North America, including the Alberta Foundation for the Arts and, oddly, Universal Studios. @everydayatelier

Feels pretty great to bring some golden hardware home. Fat Sherpa won Gold for Best Porter at the Alberta Craft Beer Awards last night. And what a night it was! Huge congrats goes out to all the winners. It's amazing to see so much great beer being made in Alberta. ⁣

We're celebrating by drinking Fat Sherpa all weekend. Come by the taproom and join us for a pint! ⁣
