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!

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 elsewhere. Awesome.

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.

I went to Calgary for the May long weekend and was set on doing a brewery tour while I was in the city. Village Brewery was the easiest to contact and book a tour. When we were driving there our cab driver took us on a bit of a long trip, resulting in more money for him and us being... More

Village Brewery is a place that you must visit If you're a beer lover. Even if you don't like beer, you will still like it because of very funny guide called Bobby. I had a chance to visit the beer factory located 10 mins taxi drive from Calgary downtown ($15 one way) at 5000 12A St SE, during a corporate... More
