Calgary brewery transforming into the house from Home Alone this season

Nov 12 2021, 10:15 pm

Alberta has declared a state of public health emergency due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As recommended by health officials, if you choose to participate in events outside of your home, please adhere to COVID-19 health and safety measures, including proper physical distancing, mask-wearing, and frequent handwashing. Additionally, be aware that many businesses and events may be participating in the Restrictions Exemption Program and will require proof of vaccine or a negative, privately paid COVID-19 test. If you are sick, please stay home.

Fans of the iconic Christmas movie Home Alone, rejoice! Calgary’s very own Eighty-Eight Brewing Co. is becoming the McCallister house this December.

The brewery is bringing the film to life in their taproom, complete with battle plans, booby traps, tree houses, and maybe even a wet bandit.

Don’t be late for that Paris flight and go easy on the Pepsi, Fuller. You’re going to want to pop into Eighty-Eight (aka the McCallister House) for favourite brews like the Wave Pool Tropical IPA, Hammer Pants Pale Ale, Monster Truck Lite Pilsner, and Ring Pop Kviek Double IPA, along with seasonal, limited-time offerings.

Head to the Eighty-Eight taproom starting December 1 to immerse yourself in some full-blown, all-out Christmas dĆ©cor and enjoy some of the brewery’s seasonal beers and eats to celebrate the festive season.
