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.
Open for growlers fills, bottles and cans to go, and gathering with friends, our intimate 30-seat tap room with room at the bar, offers an always-changing selection of quality beer. In warm weather, enjoy one of our sought-after patio seats while sampling one or all of the twelve beers on tap.
ALBERTA PLAIN - APA - 5% Pours (5oz/16oz)/Growlers/Cans
Brewed due to popular demand for an easy drinking, simple ale. This pale ale is true to style, not too hoppy, and clean and crisp for the summer heat.
BLACK CURRANT IPA - 5.5% Pours (5oz/16oz)/Growlers
Refreshingly tart, slightly bitter, the black currants add complexity and depth to the resinous flavours of the hops.
CDCW - NITRO STOUT - 4% Pours (5oz/16oz)
Cold Dry Canadian Winter. Dark, dry and sessional. Need we say more?
CLUB MATE+ - GLUTEN FREE - 5% Pours (5oz/16oz)/Growlers/Cans
An alternative to cider, this fermented tea delivers notes of grapefruit and benefits from dry-hop additions. Perfect for those who prefer to be gluten-free.
HEARTLESS ROMANTIC - SOUR - 5.8% Pours (5oz/16oz)/Growlers/Cans
12 hours of lactobacillus and a healthy dose of hops have made this a regular at HLB!
KENT - ESB - 5% Pours (5oz/16oz)/Growlers
Showcasing the herbal and bitter notes of British hops vs. fruit/citrus of American hops, this ale is inspired and named after our friends at Kent of Inglewood.
MOLÉ “DANGER” STOUT - 9% Pours (5oz/10oz)
This full bodied Imperial Stout is brewed with 3 types of chilis and cocoa in the boil. Lactose post fermetation provides body and a Haberno tincture is available to add “danger” in the form of spice!
TALKING HOPS - DIPA - 7.4% Pours (5oz/16oz)/Growlers/Cans
Visit Vermont in Calgary. A hazy, juicy New England DIPA, brewed with the addition of wheat malt, Conan yeast from Vermont and dry hopped with citrus/tropical forward hops.
SMOKES - SCOTCH ALE - 6.4% Pours (5oz/16oz)/Growlers/Cans
Our take on a Scotch Ale. Well rounded with a hint of smoked malt.
WABI-SABI - YUZU SOUR - 4.5% Pours (5oz/16oz)/Growlers/Cans
A refreshing sessional sour with that delicious yuzu taste.
HLB BARREL-AGED SERIES
Cabernet Sauvignon Barrel-Aged HIGHPA - 8% - Pours (5oz/10oz)
Another Barrel-Aged version of an HLB classic. Close to two months in a barrel has added depth and sweet oak flavours. Dry-hopped post-barrel.
Cabernet Sauvignon Barrel-Aged IMPERIAL SAISON - 10% - Pours (5oz/10oz)/Bottles
Six weeks in a Cabernet Sauvignon barrel have enhanced the funky flavours of French Saison yeast while adding depth with oak and tannins.
Whiskey Barrel-Aged SCOTCH ALE - 8.4% Pours (5oz/10oz)/Bottles
Scotch Ale aged for 6 weeks in a freshly-emptied premium Alberta whiskey barrel which has enhanced the deep, sweet, velvety finish of one of our classics.
COLD BREW - NITRO SOUR - 3.5% - A nitrogenated session stout, infused with Big Mountain coffee and lightly soured in the kettle.
INGLEWOOD - IPA - 6% - Our IPA with a west coast focus. This single IPA benefits from the resinous and spicy character of west coast hops.
KENT - ESB - 5% - Showcasing the herbal and bitter notes of British hops vs. fruit/citrus of American hops, this ale is inspired and named after our friends at Kent of Inglewood.
WHISKEY BAREL-AGED 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. Evocative of a young white wine, it is mildly sour with brightly fruity aromas and overtones with the slightest hint of oak and zing from the whiskey barrel at the finish.
YMPA - PALE ALE - 5% - A medium bodied pale ale steeped with Yerba Maté tea and lightly dry-hopped with a blend of hops and a bit more Yerba Maté.
MERCHANT - SAISON - 6% - A small batch spiced saison with cardamom and a slightly sour finish.
HIGHPA - DIPA - 8% - Our East Coast style, full bodied, heavy hitting, dry-hopped Double IPA.
DADGE - PALE ALE - 5% - Nothing says cool like cucumber. Beat the summer heat with our cucumber infused pale ale.
DIYPA - ISA - 4.4% - Featuring Citra, Mosaic and El Dorado dry hop additions for big fruity hop aromas in a crisp sessional 4.4% pale.

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 and Mondays 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 firstname.lastname@example.org
Do you reserve tables?
Unfortunately, we don't accept reservations. We have a small tap room with 30 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.
