Bench Creek Brewing is Alberta’s first rural destination brewery. Forged in the wilderness, our beers have been honed by the only law out here: Survival of the Fittest.
Built by family and friends, this brewery isn’t just nestled in Andrew’s backyard, it’s smack dab in the middle of Alberta’s backyard, the foothills. We are immersed in the untamed majesty and the harsh realities of the wild that make this province special.
That’s where we brew, but what really sets us apart is how we do it.
We believe quality is something you can taste. That’s why we push our techniques and recipes constantly – why we experiment as if our lives depend on it. Our goal is to balance premium ingredients perfectly in every glass, growler, can, cask, or keg we fill. Only then do we rest knowing these distinctive beers will be worth discovering over and over again.
SRM = Standard Reference Method. This is a measurement method to calculate the colour of beer where 2 SRM is super pale yellow and 40+ SRM is pitch black.
IBU = International Bittering Units. Another measurement, used to determine the level of bitterness in the beer. Something like a standard light American lager has about 8-10 IBUs, and a super hoppy double IPA can have 90+ IBU.
ABV = Alcohol by Volume.
