Eighty-Eight Brewing is neon cool on two floors

Eighty-Eight Brewing Company is named in honour of Calgary’s Winter Olympics (yes, in 1988). It boast an impressive list of about 15 core and seasonal beers.

The clincher is Noble Pie, which makes 18-inch pizzas—featuring aged and fresh cheeses—hand crafted by Mike Lange and fired in a little upstairs oven. They’re only available Thursday to Sunday or until the dough runs out, a great incentive for showing up early.

Favourite beer Double Dare Imperial IPA (7.7%, 88 IBU; 500-ml bottles only). Knocks you down and attacks your tastebuds. Three words: “Big, Dank, Pine.” Enough said.
