LOCALLY BREWED AND CRAFTED IN INGLEWOOD

High Line Brewing is a small batch craft brewery based in Calgary.

HLB opened in November 2016 and is located in the historic neighbourhood of Inglewood. Since then, Head Brewer JJ Mathison has been creating both high quality classic styles and exciting new flavours such as hazy IPAs and hopped sours.  There is always something new in the tank.

  Whiskey Sour - 6.5%   Introducing the third beer our new HLB Barrel Aged series. We took a blended session sour and gave it size weeks in a freshly emptied whiskey barrel.  The results are truly unique.  Evocative of a young white wine, it is mildly sour with brightly fruity aromas and overtones.  The slightest hint of oak and zing fro the whiskey barrel at the finish, this limited batch won’t last long… Available in 10 oz. pours.

FAQ

Will you fill growlers from other breweries?  

Yup!  As long it's clean, we will fill it. 

Are kids allowed?  

Yes, accompanied minors are welcome.  There are 3 kiddos in the HLB family, so we make sure to always have juice, snacks & distractions at the ready!

What about food?  

We have snacks available for $1, but, unfortunately, no space for a kitchen. Outside food is welcome and Without Papers Pizza is always happy to deliver for free.

Do you book private events or tours?   

Private events can be booked Sunday to Tuesdays or pre-opening hours.   We are always happy to offer tours during business hours (if it's not too busy!). If you're after something exclusive or to book a private event, contact us about potential costs and availability at info@highlinebrewing.com

Do you reserve tables?  

Unfortunately, we don't accept reservations.  We have a small tap room with 23 seats but we're licensed for 35 (with more room on the patio in the summer) so there's usually space at the bar for tastings while you wait for a table.

What about filtering your beer? 

All of our beers are unpasteurized and unfiltered so keep it cold and drink it fresh.

Where do you brew? 

Everything happens on site in the brew space behind the tap room.
