Beer Revolution - Calgary
Now here's a pretty cool place that I didn't know existed until just recently. The Brewster downtown across from Safeway on 8 ave SW is where this wonderful new Craft Beer House is now located. Brewsters got split in half and this beer oasis now occupies half the property.
On first entry, the modern decor and multiple television screens were a welcome sight. What really caught me off guard were their airport style listings. It took me a while but then I realized what they were.
These screens showed the magic of Beer Revolution. 24 taps, and each type of craft beer listed which were on tap at the time and how much was left in the keg. Brilliant.
The manager/owner explained to us that they had over 300 beers in kegs but only 24 taps, every time a keg taps out then they flush the lines and but in a different kind of beer, then update the board. Brilliant. Another thing to note is that the lines to the kegs are only about 4 feet long... not like Craft where the lines are 50+ feet, thus reducing the amount of beer that sits in the lines and goes bad.
These guys really have a passion for great beer and their enthusiasm and service shows it. Food is nothing to scuff at either so have a look at their menu and try out some foodies!
They really know their beer and if you're a beer connoisseur, I highly recommend checking this place out!! I'm looking forward to my next trip back...
