Alby the Elder DIPA$5.50 – $22.00
Alby the Elder is an aggressively-hopped west-coast-style double IPA with some throwbacks toward our favourite doubles of Northern California. Clocking in at just over 100 IBU (lab-tested), this beer has a high level of bitterness, but we made up a lot of those IBUs with whirlpool hops, and gave it a massive double dry hop, so the beer has tons of hop aroma and flavour (we could smell it from across our large building when a brewer was sloshing it for gravity samples). Not just hop, there’s still a tasty malt base to balance things out. The elevated alcohol, high bitterness and fairly dry body serve to make Alby the Elder beer best suited to the hop heads among us.
Berry Manly$5.00 – $20.00
First brewed in collaboration with Hubtown Brewery (Okotoks, AB) to celebrate International Women’s Day, 2020, this beer is a uniquely refreshing Belgian Blonde ale with raspberry and a custom Pink Boots blend of American hops. Underlying the fruit and bready malt flavours is a spicy Belgian yeast character, with moderate hop bitterness to balance out berry sweetness. Available on draft in 16-oz or 5-oz pour sizing. Also available in growler jug for take-home.
California Common$4.25 – $17.00
We brewed this lager/ale hybrid as an homage to our close attachment with California, where most of Prairie Dog’s founders lived immediately prior to launching our business. This style resembles American Amber (Red) Ale, but it uses a unique strain of lager yeast, which was primarily used in “Steam Beers” during the early 20th century in San Francisco before dying out and being resurrected by Anchor Brewing (San Francisco) during the late 70’s. Our version is amber with a foamy head with a firm, old-school West-coast bittering/flavour hop to balance out the toasty, malty base and roasty undertones.
Coconut Brown Ale$4.75 – $19.00
Gold-medal winner at the 2019 Canadian International Beer Awards for Rookie of the Year! This signature brown ale is a Prairie Dog crowd favourite, which features a load of Alberta barley malt overlaid with a huge dose of shredded coconut that we toast in house prior to infusing into the beer. Flavourful but still extremely well-balanced, the base beer is nutty with a chocolate finish. A small, late-boil hop charge adds subtle tropical notes that interplay with the coconut, and the slight bitterness added by the hops offer a counterpoint to the sweeter coconut flavours, making it easy to have more than one.
Ginger Lime Gose$9.00 – $16.00
Big and citrusy, mildly tart with lime peel, lime oil and fresh-diced ginger added in the boil and post-fermentation. Amazingly refreshing.
Kettle Sour Gone Wild!$10.00 – $20.00
Tart, fruity and complex with wood and subtle funky wild fermentation flavours.
Many of our owners and staff think that our Kettle Sour Gone Wild is our very best beer. It starts out as our regular kettle sour, made in the style of a German Berliner Weisse, but we transfer a portion of that beer to French oak barrels, where we inoculate it with brettanomyces yeast, a form of “wild” yeast that adds complex, spicy phenols and fruity flavours to this highly spirited and white-wine-like beer, which still clocks in at under 3.5% ABV. After 2-3 months in the barrel, we chill, carbonate and package this beer in kegs. Because this limited-quantity beer takes so long to make and gains so much complexity and subtlety throughout the process, we charge a small premium over regular price.
Midnight Combine$12.00 – $45.00
Midnight Combine is a Belgian-style strong, dark beer aged in oak red wine barrels and co-fermented with wild microorganisms to produce a blend of sweet vanilla and dark fruit flavours along with a mild acidity like red wine and a complex blend of spicy phenols that will evolve as the beer ages. This beer is ready to drink now, but intended for cellaring for up to 3 years.
Oat of This World$16.00
Prairie Dog’s take on a pale form of an English Mild beer. This beer is extremely sessionable with plenty of body and flavour from the flaked and golden naked oats added. Other traditional British ingredients bring flavours of caramel, nut, and biscuit. Excellent patio beer!
*Kettle sour shown in image – Oat of This World is very similar in appearance.
Superb Radler$5.00 – $20.00
Our Super-B Hazy Wheat ale blended with orange and cranberry juices, to produce a fruity, quenching low-alcohol beverage with pleasant bread undertones.
Contains sulphites for stability.
Table Saison$4.25 – $17.00
Our table saison is pale, refreshing, flavourful and easy drinking with spicy and fruity notes.
At a lower-alcohol than our Strait Lace Saison, this straw-coloured table-strength saison features more noble hop spiciness along with plenty of the clove and fruit character that comes from our Belgian yeast. Bready malt flavours round out this refreshing, effervescent ale.
Uncle Eddie’s Stubborn (Oatmeal) Stout$4.50 – $18.00
Silver-medal winner at the 2018 Canadian International Beer Awards for Best Friday Cask.
A rich, dark stout with a thick, creamy head and full mouthfeel, having notes of coffee, caramel, and dark chocolate with background smoke character from our in-house-smoked flaked oats. Available on draft in 16-oz or 5-oz pours, or take it home in cans or growler jugs!
Little Bear Kölsch$4.25 – $17.00
Flavourful but easy drinking, our Kölsch-style ale is clean and crisp with a slightly sweet grainy flavour and a dry finish. Based on the German pilsner style, but fermented with ale yeast and lagered for several weeks, this beer has a pleasant, soft and surprisingly refreshing flavour profile that makes it stand tall beside its lager brethren.
Super B$4.25 – $17.00
Bronze medal winner at the 2020 Alberta Beer Awards! This American-style wheat beer pours golden with a white, foamy head, and features prominent citrus, stone fruit, and bread aroma. The beer has a light, refreshing body with moderate carbonation and a dry but soft bread-flavoured finish and mild grainy aftertaste. An easy drinker that won’t fatigue the palate.
Prairie Lands Lager$4.25 – $17.00
This rich and malty lager highlights some of the fantastic malt grown and produced on our very own prairie lands. With the large majority of the malt used consisting of Vienna malt from Maker’s Malt (Rosthern, SK) and Dark Munich Malt from Origin Malting (Strathmore, AB), expect a strong malty flavour with notes of caramel, cracker and biscuit.
Tail-Twitcher IPA$3.00 – $16.00
Clear, amber and dry, this modern example of an American-style IPA bursts with tangerine, lemon and a resinous grapefruit character overlaid upon a tasty base of Alberta malts. Amarillo, Lemondrop and Mosaic hops are generously added late in the boil and throughout several massive dry-hop steps. In spite of the intense hop character, bitterness is balanced to allow the underlying malt flavour to shine through.
Jitter Bear Coffee Kölsch$9.00 – $16.00
Jitter Bear Coffee Kölsch is a fan-favourite of ours at Prairie Dog Brewing. It starts with our Little Bear Kölsch, which we then infuse with a premium Columbian dark-roast coffee from Rebel Bean (Okotoks, AB), which brings milk chocolate, toffee and caramel notes to the beer – no harsh coffee bitterness at all. Combined with the sweetness and honey notes from our Little Bear, this beer tastes like a Coffee Crisp bar in a glass.
Gunnison’s Red$4.50 – $18.00
Named after the boisterous Gunnison’s Prairie Dog of the four-corners region, our red ale takes cues from the classic Irish Red style, employing a hint of roasted barley for colour and taste atop a base of sweeter caramel malts with a deliberate underlying bitterness that keeps the beer palatable and adds a pleasant aftertaste, but includes a late dose of Chinook hops for a spicier, American-style finish. Our house yeast keeps the beer fairly dry with a malty backbone, making it easy to have another.
