Toronto-based Mill Street Brewery is opening its doors in Calgary. The historic Costigan house has finally been transformed into a local brew pub that will house a full on-site brewery, beer hall, and a retail store all of which opens to the public on Friday, October 21.
The beer selection will feature some of Mill Street’s delicious offerings such as Original Organic Lager, Tankhouse Ale, 100th Meridian Organic Amber Lager and Cobblestone Stout.
Additionally, there will be some seasonal blends and locally inspired special brews that will be served in the brewpub and sold exclusively in the retail store.
Under the guidance of Mill Street’s Brewmaster, Joel Manning, Calgary’s newest Head Brewer Bennie Dingemanse will create these unique beers while using some of the best ingredients that Western Canada has to offer. Mill Street has already announced that they will be working with fellow 17th Ave brewery, Trolley 5, to work on a collaboration to be served at both restaurants.
In addition to beer, Executive Chef Glen Manzer will pair some regional Western Canadian fare with his own twists on casual favourites while mixing in some uniquely Albertan ingredients.
