So I’ve had a gift certificate to Alley Kat for the past year that I’ve been trying forever to use. AK have been brewing beers since 1995; craziness! Well, we finally made it out on a Tuesday afternoon.
The brewery is a bit hidden off the main road so look for this combined sign.
Saw this AK car parked outside.
For summer hours, thye’re only open on weekdays.
You can find them at a couple other shops if you need your Alley Kat fix. Sherbrooke Liquor is always a good choice.
The inside has a nice layout.
There’s bottles/packs, growlers/howlers/pints, merchandise, 6/12 packs and then a small tasting room at the back.
Their merch prices are a bit out of wack – $45.00 for a hoodie? Er, no thanks.
Their beer hall of fame was cool. Always love seeing beer branding/labels.
Flavours on tap.
Some of the beer awards that they’ve won.
We’ve obviously had Alley Kat before but one of the workers was kind enough to let us try everything they had on tap. Plus it was free! Nice.
– Main squeeze grapefruit ale
– Aprikat golden ale
– Scona gold kolsch
– Sunburst session ale (seasonal)
– Full moon pale ale
– Alabaster dragon double IPA
– Buena vista brown ale
I ended up filling my free growler with their sunburst session ale and used my $30.00 to buy a couple howlers and water bottles. Trust me, those water bottles are great.
Their beers are pretty bland and boring taste wise but that’s Alley Kat for you. Hence why it took me forever to figure out what to use my gift certificate on…
