July Ale-berta: Town Square Brewing

Updated: Sep 12

In this monthly feature, we pick a different Alberta brewery that we carry in-store to highlight their incredible brews being made close to home!

Our July Ale-berta feature is Edmonton’s Town Square Brewing, established in 2017. The founders were looking for a change from their careers and wanted to fulfill a lifelong dream — Brandon Boutin came from the oil patch, Sterling Nordin was a heavy equipment tech, and Tyler McNaughton worked in architecture — to create a craft brewery with a strong sense of community at its heart.

While the south Edmonton brewery is small, there are gigantic flavours coming out of their brews — they aren’t afraid to step outside the box. Their community spirit has also seen them join forces with other Alberta breweries on limited release collaborations. And many of their beer cans feature art from local artist Patricia Taylor, who used to be a server at the taproom — each beer tells a story inspired by employees, family and members of the community.

Town Square uses local grains in their brewing and has a solid mainstay lineup while also experimenting with different styles depending on the season. Here are the beers we currently have in stock from Town Square Brewing.

Chiquita Mexican Cerveza

This light & crushable Mexican style lager is built on a Pilsner malt base, with flaked corn, a touch of biscuit malt and a Town Square twist... they lightly dry hop with Motueka hops for a hint of lime character and a clean finish. An excellent patio crusher.

Forged Rye Amber Ale

Forged Rye Amber brings a healthy dose of rye malt to the forefront of a balanced amber-style ale. Local specialty Alberta grains give a complex malt flavour with spicy, nutty and biscuit undertones. Northern Brewer balances the malt bill and Amarillo hops which leave citrus and grassy notes.

Megawatt New England IPA

The haze craze continues with this super juicy IPA. This thirst-quenching beauty is loaded with copious amounts of El Dorado and Citra hops, but boasts a relatively low bitterness. This is lights- out delicious and full of juicy hop power!

Beets by Sinden Sour

Brewer Drew Sinden brought this special Kettle Sour to the table mixing fermentation like sick beats... or beets? This sour was created using chopped beets in the kettle, and then again during fermentation. Hitting all the flavour notes, Beets by Sinden is tart, earthy, fruity and loaded with citrus - all wrapped up in a pretty pink package!


Dimensions collide as two styles become one. New England IPA and Kettle Sour blend into a potent mix of sour, sweet and juicy. The first dimension was a super sour base with Mosaic. The second dimension was from out east, the New England haze bomb with a monstrous dry hop of Citra, Mosaic and El Dorado. Passion Fruit and Mango start up front like a punch in the nose, sour in the middle and then a juicy finish.
