Village Brewery’s Calgary beer is back

After first reviving the 1893 beer recipe last year, Village Brewery’s 2022 release of Calgary Beer is a clean, crisp session beer.

Village Brewery is celebrating its 10th anniversary and inviting all of Calgary to join Calgary Beer’s summer comeback.

The original Calgary Export Lager (Calgary Beer) was once the premier brew of the city of Calgary’s premier brewery, the Calgary Brewing & Malting Co. malt and hops. The beer sold out within weeks and is now back for summer 2022 to mark Village Brewery’s 10th anniversary.

The brewery’s latest version of Calgary beer is a session beer (reminiscent of a pilsner) and offers a clean, crisp, approachable taste with an unmistakably fruity smell. The cans again feature refreshed vintage labels, so you can enjoy the beer and keep the can as a keepsake.

Available at participating retailers and Village Brewery, 5000 12A St. SE, 403-243-3327,
