We are almost there - the brewery renovation is complete and our pilot system is in!
Just waiting on our main equipment to arrive. Will update when we have more information.
In the meantime check out the background / note below from our Head Brewer - Ian Sinclair
Brewing has been a bit of a tradition in my family, I remember my dad boiling a big pot of water and
sticky malt extract syrup on our stove as a kid. I started brewing homebrew kits in my 20’s as a way to
cut the cost of my beer bills, and slowly worked my way into “all-grain” brewing and writing my own
recipes as my experience and interest in craft beer grew.
Some of the formative experiences that led me down the craft beer path were attending craft beer
festivals in Calgary and Montreal, an enlightening trip through Europe with stops at beer Meccas like
Belgium, the UK, and Germany, and even sampling beers from all over the world at a Pub called
Bottlescrew Bill’s; completing my passport in 2011.
I decided on a career change that would combine my interest in brewing with the growing craft beer
scene in Alberta and went back to school to crack the books in the Olds College brewing program,
graduating in 2018. Over the next few years, I acquired knowledge and experience brewing at Common
Crown, Big Rock and Village, learning different techniques and philosophies which will be invaluable as I
take the Head Brewer reigns at Bottlescrew Bill’s Brewing. My goal as a brewer is to bring you balanced,
well-crafted beer whether it’s a classic style you’re familiar with or a style or ingredient you may be
trying for the first time. I hope you enjoy the beer. Cheers!
