Cold Garden Calgary’s Coolest Craft Brewery

Ol Beautiful 22

Dogs are more than welcome at Calgary’s Cold Garden Beverage Company

Arguing that Cold Garden Beverage Company isn’t the coolest craft brewery in Calgary could well draw howls of protest.

That’s partly because the Inglewood brewery welcomes dogs inside its taproom. And on a busy Saturday afternoon, the canine cacophony adds to the general din of folks chatting over some seriously good pints.

About a dozen beers on tap, at affordable prices

Mostly though, Cold Garden is just undeniably funky with vegetated walls, comfy couches, graffiti-covered bathrooms. Really, there’s nothing like it in Calgary’s busy craft brewing scene.
