Tool Shed Brewing Company *12 pm start – TOURS ARE FULL
September 23, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Most of the taproom was made from up-cycled pallets and other wood products. It’s more the experience of the tour and the tasting of our beers that make Tool Shed Unique. Tool Shed Brewing Company co-founders Jeff and Graham started the Calgary brewery in Graham’s backyard tool shed. When they started in 2012, minimum brewing capacity in Alberta was 500,000 litres and there were only two Calgary breweries. Tool Shed Brewing was initially forced to brew beer out of province and import back into Alberta. Knowing some of the best malt barley in the world is grown here in our province, this demanded a change from the government in brewing minimums. Jeff and Graham were at the forefront of successfully lobbying for that change in Alberta. In 2013 the Alberta Liquor and Gaming Commission opened the doors for microbreweries and changed the provinces economic landscape forever.
Tool Shed Brewing continues to push for change in our local economy, from advocating the Calgary Stampede to serve local craft beer, to increase awareness with the City to improve administrative efficiencies that help other Calgary businesses.
Today Tool Shed Brewing has four core beers and several seasonals in rotation. Each award-winning beer has its own story and honors someone who has played an integral role in growing not only Tool Shed Brewing but the craft beer industry as a whole.
