It started with a sign, or more accurately a bunch of friends. Part house, part brew lab, The Establishment was the place where we gathered, slept, brewed, grew a garden, lived the good life. At some point or another, at least six of our friends called this place home. It was Brandon who found The Establishment sign on a snowboarding road trip and propped it up in the window. Everyone agreed it suited the place and the name stuck.
The epic Calgary flood of 2013 did it’s worst on this Erlton home. Mike was living in the basement at the time and lost everything he owned. For days we pulled debris and mud out of that basement, but the strength of friendships and good will in the community brought The Establishment back to it’s feet. The unforeseen benefit of all this destruction, was that a completely gutted basement was the perfect space to set up a new home-brew system complete with yeast lab. The brewing and experimentation rose to new levels, and soon the medals from various home-brew comps were rolling in.
This beer is our version of a winning Wonka Bar: chocolatey and wrapped in gold, y’all! A Robust Porter in both style and workload, this dark beauty did some of the heavy lifting in getting our homegrown little brewery Established in a real big way by winning us our first ever gold medal in the Alberta Beer Awards.
Its surefooted roasty, toasty malt and rich chocolatey java flavours provide a solid foundation for its subtle sweetness. The touch of floral hops on the finish leaves beer drinkers chasing the thrill of their first sip time and time again.
