Medicine Hat has quickly emerged as a destination for craft beer, with a small but vibrant scene that is worth exploring during a visit to Southern Alberta. Keep reading for some local breweries to raise your glass to. 

 

Hell’s Basement Brewery

 

With its name taken from Rudyard Kipling’s famous quote—“This part of the country seems to have all hell for a basement, and the only trap door appears to be in Medicine Hat”—this brewery takes pride in its community and credits its neighbouring businesses, tradespeople, and artists for helping make its existence a reality. Its tap room, for example, was built with local companies and features tons of local inspiration in its decor. 

 

Medicine Hat Brewing Company 

 

Steeped in local history, the Medicine Hat Brewing Company first began serving old fashion lager, ale, and stout back in 1912. The new iteration the brewery opened in 2016 and has since become a local institution. Over a century later, it continues to offer excellent and award-winning beers to suit all tastes and occasions.

Traditional American and European style ales are brewed in small batches at downtown’s Travois Ale Works, with an ever-changing line up at only seven barrels per batch. It provides a one-of-a-kind, bespoke drinking experience that you’ve gotta taste to believe.
