Craft breweries are popping up in cities across North America, but back in 2009, the idea of a locally brewed beer was a novel concept. One unsuccessful craft brewery closed in a century-old building on 104 Street owned by renowned Edmonton architect Gene Dub. He had the historic building, the equipment and a well-designed space for hosting events. All he needed was the right people to get it off the ground. Enter Ian McIntosh.  “I don’t think people get into craft brewing for the money. You do it for the love of it,” says Ian, Yellowhead Brewing Company’s operations manager.

The building they are in was built in 1914, and features floor to roof windows showcasing the large fermentation tanks. The open concept space is now popular for corporate functions, weddings and special events. “It’s hard to start as a brewery and just be a brewery,” says Ian. “A lot of places brew beer and have a restaurant attached to help bring in revenue. For us, the events base did that and now both are thriving.” Thriving so much that, in the fall of 2016, Yellowhead Brewing Company expanded to include a tasting room. Now the brewery will be a six-days-a-week venture with delicious food and, of course, tasty pints.

Buy local: Edmonton’s hand crafted, small batch booze makers

Yellowhead, Edmonton’s “pioneers of prairie beers,” brews out of the historic Shaw Building downtown that was redesigned by local architect Gene Dub, a trailblazer in adaptive reuse of many of the city’s heritage buildings. Stop by and kick back among all the exposed brick and sip happily on their well-established premium lager – also available in bars and liquor stores around town. Or, visit their website to book a tour or reserve a keg.

Best Edmonton pubs to grab a craft beer

Best Edmonton pubs to grab a craft beer

My first time at Yellowhead Brewery was for a friend’s wedding. The exposed brick walls, romantic lights and charming staff made it a beautiful spot to watch my friend get hitched. When it’s not acting as an event space, the cozy pub room is a good place to grab a pint of this locally-made craft beer – it’s big enough to hold 60 of your closest friends but not so large that it will get overcrowded.

Beautiful Edmonton wedding venues

Beautiful Edmonton wedding venues

This is the perfect venue for a small-sized wedding (under 60 people). There are two rooms you can married in and one of them doubles as a reception area. The exposed brick walls and romantic white lights are such a sweet setting and there is a stage for speeches and the head table. There’s onsite catering and your guests can go for brewery tours while you do bridal party photos.
