  •  3.8 on Untappd.
    IPA - New England / Hazy | 
    6.5% Alcohol/Vol. | 
    0 IBU (Trace Bitterness) 
    So many grams per litre!! Nothing but new school hopping techniques for that tropical stank and a restrained bitterness. Full-bodied, jungle fruit sweetness upfront, slightly resinous, green piney hop bitterness in the swallow. Hazy and mouth-filling, almost slick on the palate, yet finishing refreshingly dry!
    Inaugural Batch: Saturday, February 24, 2018 
  •  3.6 on Untappd.
    Wheat Beer - Witbier / Blanche | 
    4.5% Alcohol/Vol. | 
    0 IBU (Trace Bitterness) 
    A cloudy wheat beer with distinctive Belgian yeast character, citrus peel, and coriander spicing.
    Inaugural Batch: Saturday, May 6, 2017 
  •  3.6 on Untappd.
    Stout - Other | 
    4.5% Alcohol/Vol. | 
    0 IBU (Trace Bitterness) 
    This stout was engineered towards early trips to warm pubs on dark winter afternoons in Alberta. Lower alcohol and smooth malts make for easy drinking. Notes of dark fruit, lightly roasted coffee, and a pinch of smoke. It's dark out... but it's still early!
    Inaugural Batch: Sunday, August 14, 2016 
  •  3.8 on Untappd.
    IPA - American | 
    6.5% Alcohol/Vol. | 
    0 IBU (Trace Bitterness) 
    Did you know cannabis and hops are cousins?? Brewing ATO is an annual quest to combine new as well as classic hop varieties to create the most deliciously dank IPA we can! There isn’t actually any weed in here, but this year we did add terpenes along with a few litres of purposefully lightstruck hop tea to add a touch of skunkiness reminiscent of our second favourite green plant. Flavour: Like a pineapple that was dragged through a pine forest, but in a good way. Aroma: ...kinda smells like the art teacher's office.
    Inaugural Batch: Monday, October 1, 2018 
  •  3.8 on Untappd.
    Red Ale - American Amber / Red | 
    5% Alcohol/Vol. | 
    0 IBU (Trace Bitterness) 
    Your fix of downers AND uppers! This is an amber ale cold steeped with TARIKU MENGESHA coffee beans from our pals at The Colombian Mountain Coffee & Roastery here in Edmonton, Alberta. If there was ever any doubt, we'd say the coffee makes this a legitimate morning beverage. Enjoy your First Pull!
    Inaugural Batch: Thursday, April 25, 2019 
  •  3.7 on Untappd.
    Winter Warmer | 
    7% Alcohol/Vol. | 
    0 IBU (Trace Bitterness) 
    Well don't you look cozy! Sittin' inside, looking out the window at snowmen and stuff like that, enjoying a holiday spice beer brewed with clove and allspice with rich nutty and caramel undertones... lucky duck.
    Inaugural Batch: Friday, November 29, 2019 
  •  3.8 on Untappd.
    Shandy / Radler | 
    3.5% Alcohol/Vol. | 
    0 IBU (Trace Bitterness) 
    Well hellooo summer time! We know what you're thinking. “A radler?? I dunno guys…”. Well let us invite you to climb down off of your craft beer high horse and join us in the kiddie pool! There Will Be Blood Orange is a perfect blend of Bent Stick beer and blood orange juice that has a low ABV and some vitamins to help keep you floatin’ through the afternoon. Grab your boonie hat and pop open that tube of sunscreen, we’ll do your back.
    Inaugural Batch: Thursday, May 28, 2020 
  •  3.7 on Untappd.
    Pilsner - Other | 
    4.8% Alcohol/Vol. | 
    0 IBU (Trace Bitterness) 
    We started our brewery to make the beers we want to drink, and Hay-Maker is the prime example! “Wheated Pilsner” is an SOB (style of beer) we totally just made up, but thought would be delicious. Hay-Maker is a finely balanced pilsner brewed with the choicest premium malts and conditioned by plenty of lagering time. We added Alberta wheat and modern hopping techniques to put a Bent Stick twist on a European classic.
    Inaugural Batch: Friday, November 15, 2019 
  •  3.8 on Untappd.
    Pale Ale - American | 
    5% Alcohol/Vol. | 
    0 IBU (Trace Bitterness) 
    Swap the Hops is one of the beers we’ve brewed from the start, but has changed a bunch over time. It started as an American Style Pale Ale, morphed into a hazy New England, and now we’re back to a more classic Pale Ale recipe. Why? Because that’s what we’re thirsty for these days and we make the rules around here. Join us on this journey through nostrils and over tongue to try different single hop varieties (as indicated by the green lettering on the front) as we experiment with new flavours together! Learning is fun.

    Fruit Beer | 
    4.5% Alcohol/Vol. | 
    0 IBU (Trace Bitterness) 
    Having one of those days? Raise your hands to the heavens, look up and holler "SALINITY NOW!". It will help. But if it doesn't, this pale ale brewed with salt and fresh citrus might.
    Inaugural Batch: Friday, May 31, 2019

    Porter - Baltic | 
    8.5% Alcohol/Vol. | 
    0 IBU (Trace Bitterness) 
    You probably grabbed this beer thinking you were going to have a good time. WRONG. You’re about to learn stuff! In the 18th century the English were really into brewing beers that travelled well, as they were preoccupied with not minding their own business. Strong dark beers gained popularity in surrounding regions, and eventually other folks started brewing versions themselves. It happens to be particularly chilly around the Baltic Sea, so lager yeast (which ferments at cooler temperatures than ale yeast), was used as it’s what works better when it’s nippy out. Next thing you know, you’ve got Baltic Porter, which is essentially a lagered version of a strong porter or imperial stout that wins national awards for a rinky-dink little brewery in Edmonton. It's also dark, like Space.

    Fruit Beer | 
    5% Alcohol/Vol. | 
    0 IBU (Trace Bitterness) 
    We brewed a kolsch style beer and dumped 150L of concord grape juice in it. There are some nice grade-school juicebox aromas and a pleasant remnant tartness from the fermented grapejuice. Gotta keep on sippin', ain't never gonna stop Gotta keep on sippinnnnn', someday you're gonna MAKE IT TO THE TOP!!

    IPA - American | 
    6.5% Alcohol/Vol. | 
    0 IBU (Trace Bitterness) 
    Amongst all the new school hazy NEIPA out there these days, west coast IPA seems to be a style frozen in time! We brewed a throwback IPA packed with Simcoe & Centennial hops for those classic earthy/pine/citrus notes. Wheeze the Juice!!
    Inaugural Batch: Saturday, December 7, 2019 
  •  3.8 on Untappd.
    Spiced / Herbed Beer | 
    5% Alcohol/Vol. | 
    0 IBU (Trace Bitterness) 
    Get ready to steep yourself in one of our summer favourites! Porch Swing (which won a silver at the Alberta Brewing Awards btw) is brewed with kveik yeast to coax tasty stone fruit flavours out of the fermentation. The yeast profile is a perfect backdrop for the dreamy Peach Dragon Fruit Rooibos tea from local tea wizard; The Tea Girl! It’s beery enough to still be beer, but balanced with enough fruity notes to be the perfect four-pack to split with a porch pal on a warm afternoon. Summer is precious in Edmonton, and we hope this beer helps you enjoy every sweet minute!

    Farmhouse Ale - Saison | 
    5% Alcohol/Vol. | 
    0 IBU (Trace Bitterness) 
    It was wicked cold this winter, so we brewed this pineapple saison dreaming of warmer places! We added fruit juice to the fermentation and got a nice dry saison with light pineapple notes. The name is a reference to the flight number between Edmonton & Hawaii. Beer is best enjoyed in an aloha shirt.

    The CKUA radio network has been a driving force in supporting arts and culture in Alberta since 1927. The vibrant musical landscape is one of the main reasons we at Bent Stick, love this province so much. Whether you are putting the needle down on a record in your living room, crowding towards the stage as the lights are dimmed at a downtown venue, or turning your radio dial to 94.9 FM while relaxing with friends; know that this clean refreshing lager balanced with a touch of Citra hops is our way of saying “Thanks”. (It's a North American style Lager with a dryhopped with a touch of Citra Hops! Thanks for filling your cooler, and supporting us, as well as the Alberta arts community!!)

    Belgian Strong Dark Ale | 
    8.5% Alcohol/Vol. | 
    0 IBU (Trace Bitterness) 
    This is the big mean sister to our B.S. Wit. Dark sweet figgy fruit, assertive banana, clove, and some bubblegum. Enjoy now or after cellaring... just not before driving.
    Inaugural Batch: Monday, July 31, 2017

    IPA - Imperial / Double | 
    8.5% Alcohol/Vol. | 
    0 IBU (Trace Bitterness) 
    This is it! Our very first Double IPA! We generally like our hoppy beers brewed to a bit more of a manageable strength, but when we tried a hop variety called Ariana in a batch of our “Swap the Hops NEPA”, we knew it was time. This IPA is 8.5% and packed with more hops than anything we've made before. It is much more.... Grande! AG was fermented with Kveik yeast, has big bold peach/mango/stone fruit notes and is balanced by just the right amount of bitterness.

    IPA - New England / Hazy | 
    6.5% Alcohol/Vol. | 
    0 IBU (Trace Bitterness) 
    Three Hops This Time is a tasty criss-cross of three of our favourites! We piled an aggressive load of Citra, Idaho 7, and Galaxy into a fermentor while it was a-bubblin’ to bring a tasty dance party to your mouth. Big citrus and tropical flavours with a restrained bitterness make this IPA easy for anyone to sip along with. Crack a caaaan, tip it back now y'all, three hops this time… everybody clap your hands!

    IPA - Imperial / Double | 
    8.5% Alcohol/Vol. | 
    0 IBU (Trace Bitterness) 
    Brewing that last Double IPA taught us that you really like these! So here’s the next one. We pulled out all the stops and hopped “TYN” with our favorite Australian staples; Galaxy and Nelson Sauvin. This can is packed with so many big fruity hop notes, we’re surprised you can’t smell it through the aluminum! Balanced with just the right amount of bitterness, this DIPA is very easy drinking for 8.5%, and will have you saying “Thank You, Next” as you make your way through the 4-pack. But actually, maybe don’t drink the whole 4-pack at once. That’s probably a bit much.

    IPA - White / Wheat | 
    7% Alcohol/Vol. | 
    0 IBU (Trace Bitterness) 
    A whiteout of Australian Hops! Galaxy and Ella hops to be exact. Brewed with a bevy of wheat malt and Belgian yeast, this white IPA will blanket your palate with a flurry of tropical, citrus, and pleasant bubblegum notes. Well-balanced bitterness, hazy; and finishing nice and dry!
    Inaugural Batch: Friday, March 15, 2019 
  •  3.7 on Untappd.
    IPA - Red | 
    6.5% Alcohol/Vol. | 
    0 IBU (Trace Bitterness) 
    English folklore references the Spring-Heeled Jack, a devil-like creature with eyes like “red balls of fire”! Our Spring-Heeled Jack Red IPA combines English yeast, malts and hops (Challenger) ...and a boatload of Galaxy, just because.

    We see you frantically cruising around looking for gifts, last minute party favours, something to keep you from showing up at a holiday dinner empty handed… the liquor store is where we would look too. You’re our kind of person. Stocking Stuffer Gingerbread Brown Ale is brewed with ginger, molasses, and cinnamon - just like in Patricks Mom’s recipe! Really, he just got off the phone with her as we’re writing this blurb. This beer is a perfect sleigh ride slurper, carolling can, Santa snack substitution, and yes; STOCKING STUFFER! Just for grown-ups though… We hope you enjoy this beer in front of the fireplace channel and we wish you the happiest holiday season! Cheers from your fellow frantic liquor store shoppers at Bent Stick Brewing :).

    Red Ale - American Amber / Red | 
    5% Alcohol/Vol. | 
    0 IBU (Trace Bitterness) 
    Has it been 5 years? 6? It seems like a lifetime, the kind of peak that never comes again. The great West Coast Ale Wave was a very special time and place to be drinking beer. There was crystal malt and American hops in any direction; there was a fantastic universal sense that whatever we were brewing was right, and that taste would prevail. We were riding the crest of a high and beautiful wave. If you stand on a steep hill looking west with the right kind of eyes, you can almost still taste it… In light of the memories we brewed this West Coast amber ale, with classic American hops, rich balanced malts and a sense of nostalgic adventure.

    IPA - Black / Cascadian Dark Ale | 
    6.5% Alcohol/Vol. | 
    0 IBU (Trace Bitterness) 
    Some people would call this beer a Black IPA, but those people would be wrong. We don’t want to throw too much shade, but calling something a “BLACK India PALE Ale” just doesn’t make much sense, y’know? It’s an oxymoron or something. Cascadian Dark Ale is a beer style that was pioneered in the Pacific Northwest and weaves classic citrus, earth, and pine hop notes with a touch of roast, dark chocolate, and coffee. Now let's crack one open, shake off the semantics, and get back to being “glass half full” type folks.
    Inaugural Batch: Wednesday, December 7, 2016

    Top-to-bottom the best craft brewery in a competitive field in Edmonton and has to be in the running for the best on the continent. And that might be underselling it. Too many varieties to try in one sitting and each one is a knockout. Been here a few times the last couple of years and they always have something new, different, and amazing. Very down to earth and friendly atmosphere, no club music blasting or snobby vibes, just a mellow spot to enjoy some excellent beer. A must-visit if you're in town!

    Fantastic little brewery that makes one of my all time favourite beers; Haymaker Wheated Pilsener. The crew here is super friendly and will happily answer all your questions about beer. I look forward to being able to pop into the tap room for a beer session someday hopefully soon! Cheers! Update for 2024: Bent Stick is still killing it. Haymaker is in my all time top 5 brews ever. Did I mention the people kick as too? 12/10 would highly recommend
