- Big Rock Brewing Specialty Sampler
Big Rock Brewery is the most original and oldest (celebrating 25 years) craft brewer in Alberta. It was my pleasure to include them in my informal microbrewery tour this week.
Big Rock Brewing based in Calgary, Alberta, Canada does right with big, bold, robust brews and an open arms approach to visitors. I was hooked on Big Rock before moving to the U.S. years ago, but my latest encounter cemented the deal. Traditional Ale remains the steadfast helmsman brew of the Big Rock lineup, but there are a number of new recipes that are quickly taking the western Canadian market by storm.
When I visited with Big Rock Brewing for lunch last week, I enjoyed several brews featured as seasonal offerings on taps at the Big Rock Grill, taking home a sampler six pack of some signature series brews.
