The summery flavours of this gose-style ale are designed to transport you to the sun-drenched beaches of Mexico. Think zesty lime balanced with Vancouver Island salt and smokey mezcal for a bright and refreshingly tart beer. The Mezcal Gose is conveniently available in six-pack form for easy transport, but you’ll almost want to pour this pale gold goodness into salt-rimmed margarita glasses for a beachy experience.

What began as a brewery in the basement of a home shared by a group of friends is now one of Calgary’s favourite craft breweries. The Establishment’s newest addition to their lineup of beers is the Catharina Sour-style Marmalade Skies. This fruited sour ale comes in at 6.2% ABV and features flavours of apricot and orange zest. True to its name, Marmalade Skies imparts a clean tartness balanced by a fresh fruitiness.

Drawing inspiration from a bike ride through the Belgian countryside, this Belgian-style Saison features juniper berries, orange, and lemon peels for a bright and bold taste. The spiciness from the coriander and cardamom shine through and give the Electro Tonic an unexpected level of depth — a real twist on a classic summertime beer.

This family-owned craft brewery recently released Laugh Track, a hoppy pale ale with vibrant notes of passion fruit, citrus, and berries. Pouring a deep gold, this easy-drinking pale ale clocks in at 5.4% ABV. Laugh Track’s combination of Cascade and Southern Passion hops give this beer a delicate hop flavour and a refreshingly crisp finish.
