  • Prairie Dog Brewing's Alby the Elder Double IPA (DIPA) in a branded 16-oz US pint glass with a 64-oz branded growler in the background.

    Alby the Elder DIPA

    $11.00$20.00

    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 Elby the Elder beer best suited to the hop heads among us.

  • Prairie Dog Brewing's California Common red lager in a 16oz glass, 473mL cans and 64oz growler

    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.

  • An assortment of vessels of our signature Coconut Brown Ale, an award-winning fan-favourite.

    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.

  • A 16-oz glass of Prairie Dog Brewing Desperate Times Baltic Porter with 650-mL bottle in background.

    Desperate Measures Imperial Stout

    $17.00

    Desperate Measures is a dark barrel-aged Imperial Stout blend made for desperate times. Clocking in at 10.4% ABV, this ale is deceptively smooth and easy to drink, with dark chocolate, fruit, vanilla, whisky and oak character coming across in both flavour and aroma, all coming from the malts, hops and whisky barrels in which it was aged. This bottling run is a naturally-carbonated blend, which combines 15-month oak-aged and 3-month stainless-aged Imperial Stout batches brewed in 2018 and 2019.

    Expect this beer to age well in bottle, growing smoother and more malty with time as flavours continue to mingle and hop character diminishes.

  • A 16-oz glass of Prairie Dog Brewing Desperate Times Baltic Porter with 650-mL bottle in background.

    Desperate Times Baltic Porter

    $9.00

    Dark and chocolatey, Desperate Times  is our unique take on a Baltic Porter, a popular style in the Baltic region from bygone times. This beer features a malt/hop recipe similar to an American Imperial Porter, but is brewed with San Francisco Lager yeast, and lagered cold for several months, which gives it a sweeter, maltier and more bread flavour profile than an ale. Full-bodied with a balanced bitterness, this beer is surprisingly deceptive for its alcohol level.

  • Desperate times call for desperate measures. These two limited-edition bottle releases are high-alcohol, unique dark beers, and the culmination of a lot of effort by our brewers to produce a delicous product for these strange times.

    Desperate Times call for Desperate Measures and a Midnight Combine

    $30.00

    Desperate times call for desperate measures which is why although we aren’t opening right away we are launching two very special beers to hopefully ease the pain a little. These two beauties are projects which we had underway before the COVID-19 pandemic devastated our community. They have been lagering in the background while we have pivoted and aligned our efforts towards delivery and takeaway products. These beers have been a part of the change in plans and we’re now very excited to share them with you!

    While the Imperial Stout was destined for a limited release in bottles, the Baltic Porter was originally slated only for in-house draught. We were in no rush to put the Imperial Stout on the market, but in these desperate times we must be lean and scrappy… Desperate Times Baltic Porter is a smooth 8.7% while Desperate Measures Imperial stout comes in at 10.4% so these beers aren’t lean but they sure are scrappy!

    Midnight Combine” is an uncommon phrase, but is instantly familiar to most who have grown up on a farm. Running the combines into the wee hours of the night is often what a farmer has to do to get the job done. Farmers are measured and calculated in their work – thinking slow, considering all aspects, and putting in the time to decide what the best course of action is. Then, once a plan is made, the hard work starts and doesn’t stop until it’s done. The farmer’s stamina is like no other. This beer has been aged, taking its time to develop character, and has evolved into a delicious treat – a worthy reward for any all-nighter.

  • Prairie Dog Brewing's Ginger Lime Gose in a branded 16-oz US pint glass with a 64-oz branded growler jug in the background.

  • Prairie Dog Brewing's barrel-aged Kettle Sour Gone Wild! beer in a 16-oz branded pint glass with a 64-oz branded growler jug in the background.

    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.

  • A 16-oz glass of Prairie Dog Brewing Midnight Combine barrel-aged Belgian-style Dark Strong Ale in a 16-oz branded pint glass, with a 500-mL bottle.

    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.

    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.

  • Prairie Dog Brewing's Jitter Bear Coffee Kolsch with Rebel Bean coffee, in a branded 16-oz US pint glass with a 64-oz growler jug in the background.

    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.

  • A 64-oz growler jug of Prairie Dog Brewing's delicious Gunnison's Red Ale.

    Gunnison’s Red

    $9.00$16.00

    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.
