IT TAKES A VILLAGESome of the best things happen over beer. Ideas are born, friendships forged, deals struck, communities built. That’s how Village Brewery began, friends sharing beers and dreams. Around the table, we had close to a century and a half of brewing experience. One of us was a legendary Canadian brewmaster. Naturally the talk turned to the art and craft of better beer, then to secret sources of malts and hops. By last call we had dreamed up a true community brewery. A brewery that would support Calgary’s artists and craftspeople. A brewery that would create the excellent ales and lagers our friends and neighbors deserve. That talk over beer started the brewery that handcrafted the fine brew you hold in your hand. Please join our table, lift a pint and salute the Village of Calgary. It takes a Village to raise a beer. And a beer to raise a Village. TAPROOM Come visit our taproom for pints, flights and growler fills. Our taproom functions as an art gallery and is host to various activities and events throughout the week. Regular Tap Room Hours: Free Entry Thur: 3pm-8pm Fri: 3pm-8pm Sat: 12pm-8pm TOURS AND TASTINGS Saturdays at 12:30pm and 2:30pm. Accompanied by one of our good looking tour guides, take an in-depth tour of our facility, taste all of our current beers and take home a custom made Village Brewery pint glass!

We walked in and a gentleman who worked there pointed us to the tap room. Sarah was our bartender super knowledgeable and gave us some recommendations based on our beer preferences. She gave us a mini tour and even talked with us for a bit....More

We loved our time at Village. Greeted by a lovely young lady who made the entire time enjoyable and fun. Wow, what an awesome deal. Got to sample their beer in the comfort of a very casual and cool setting. L

So glad this brewery now has hours available for the public to walk in (Thursday to Saturday I think) Tours, samples/flights, growler fills, pints, seasonal bombers, kombucha and POPCORN. Really friendly & welcoming staff and environment.

We arrived for what we expected to be an afternoon tour, but it was cancelled. Never fear, the staff sprung into action and gave us a tasting on what was probably their own time. We had a great conversation and was suggested places to go...More

Found it but we were there during the week. Sadly, no tasting or tours. Sounds like you have to book for them in advance too.
