Local Beverages Medicine Hat has developed our taste for liquid refreshment.
Hells Basement Brewery This brewery’s name was inspired by the stories of Rudyard Kipling’s travels across Canada and his 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. And you don’t even think of changing the name of your town. It’s all your own and the only hat of its kind on earth.” – Rudyard Kipling 1907 Six courageous beer lovers fromMedicine Hat along with their families, friends, and countless members of the community worked tirelessly for six months to bring quality, craft beer to Medicine Hat. 2020 Alberta Beer Awards Silver: He Ain’t Hefe (He’s My Brother) Silver: Heck of a Root Beer #102, 552-18 St SW 403.487.0489 hellsbasement.com @hellsbasementbrewery @HellsBasementMH @hellsbasement
Medicine Hat Brew Co. You’ll have an early 1900’s experi- ence when you are in this brewery where strangers become friends and the little things are celebrated. In 1912, the Medicine Hat Brewing Company began serving old fashioned lager, ale and stout to our city’s early, thirsty residents. When the Temperance Movement picked up, this popular brewery was forced to close. Over a century later, the Medicine Hat Brewing Company name was dusted off and again serves thirsty, hard-working Hatters Timeless Craft Beer.
It all began with our love of coffee but soon we had the formation of three award- winningmicro-breweries, a new distillery with their uniquely crafted flavours andmost recently a shop that produces fresh-brewed Kombucha on tap!
