    A rich Stout brewed with lactose, coffee, and vanilla. If you wanted to enjoy a cold beverage in the heat of summer before power came to Sylvan Lake in 1932, chances are you’d have been a patron of Bill and Flo Brown’s ice cutting business. Using a buzz saw and a small horsepower motor, the Browns cut blocks of ice from the frozen lake in the winter, stored them in sawdust, and delivered them door to door in wooden boxes from their 3/4 ton truck.

    21 IBU (Subtle Bitterness) 
    Luscious and nutty with notes of milk chocolate. Brewed with predominantly British roasted and specialty malts and English yeast. We're happy to carry on the longstanding culture of pubs (or "public houses") as places to gather, play, and take refuge - while indulging in a pint or two of course! For as long as pubs have thrived as community hubs, "mild" beers have been on tap. Modern milds and distinguished by their typical dark colour, predominantly malty flavour, and an ABV between 3-3.6%

    Norglenwold, the first Summer Village to be established on Sylvan Lake in 1965, borrows its name from a few early subdivisions: Northey Point, Glen-Innes, and Whitewold Beach. The area was once home to a Navel Cadet Camp (est. 1919) and seasonal cabins date back to the 1920s and '30s. A balanced West Coast IPA with an assertive citrus and pine aroma.

    in the last week
    Great wide selection of beers, cocktails, and non-alcoholics. They also have snacks and appetizers in their menu that compliments well with your beer. Board games, toys, and a guitar are available for customer's social activities. There's enough communal table and chairs inside, but they also have a big patio at the back. The service crew were cheerful and happy to serve their customers. There are several parking spots, too!

    My husband loved the beer and I loved that they have an entire craft cocktail section. A great place to have a couple of drinks. Food was okay quick snacks but nothing special. I wouldn't order the beer cheese and bread dip again, because for $18 the portion was tiny. The staff weren't overly welcoming but were nice enough.

    My parents just told be about their trip to this brewery yesterday. My dad was eager to try the beers but my mum is not a beer drinker. In our experience, most breweries have other options like cider. When my dad went up to order, he asked if they sold cider and the staff member said very rudely we are a BREWERY. He ordered a flight of beer and a vodka and coke (despite being a BREWERY). The beer was ok.

    Stopped at Snake Lake on a drive from Calgary to Jasper. Great selection of beers and tasty snack foods. We particularly liked the Wasabi Ginger Rice Lager, Public House Mild Porter, Sidewinder IPA, and Snakes Near a Plane. Mostly we appreciated the great service.
