Calgary’s Red Mile is about to boast its first brew pub and taproom, thanks to newcomer Trolley Five Restaurant & Brewery. Currently under construction, the four storey brew house is slated to open June 2016.
One of only three brew pubs in the city, Trolley Five, which takes the place of Melrose Café, will offer Calgarians a casual and family-oriented space to drink and dine.
The 15,000 square foot space, built from scratch after the demolition of Melrose Café, will house its own brewery, a 200-seat main dining area, 70-seat bar, 30-seat private dining room, tap room, and outdoor patio.
Beer-wise, Trolley Five will craft their own West Coast pale ale (the brewery’s version of an IPA), lagers, and aging sours. Trolley Five will also offer a full-service menu, which will showcase a range of comforting pub fare.
The trio behind Trolley Five, which takes its name from the historic street car that ran through the Beltline, is made up of Wayne Leong (the founder of the Melrose Café), Ernie Tsu (previously the owner of 1410 World Bier Haus), and PJ L’Heureux (president and founder of CRAFT Beer Market).
