Blindman Brewing

I’ve been wanting to check out Blindman Brewing since I tried one of their beers at a Edmonton beer. I was instantly hooked on their sour beers. Well, I finally made it out to their brewery on a beautiful Saturday afternoon.

Their tap hours are pretty great. Friday and Saturday hours are 12:00pm to 10:00pm.

Cute signage in the window. Violators will go thirsty haha.

The inside is awesome with a popcorn machine, merch and plenty of seating. They even have an outside patio with four long picnic tables; perfect in my books.

Don’t mind if we do. Who can say no to free popcorn?

A bit on the salty side but I guess that’s more reason to drink more beer right?

There were half a dozen mainstays on tap along with a few rotational ones. If you’re feeling hungry, they have some snacks, Pinocchio Ice Cream (from Edmonton) and some craft sodas/coffee for non-drinkers.

The taps looked pretty sharp.

Bottles and cans for you to stock up on.

Merchandise.

These frisbees looked dope but $15.00 is way too much for my blood.

Flight ($8.00 for four)
DSC02374From left to right, lemons and limes kettle sour, Saison Lacombe lumiere, kettle sour #8 and Longshadows Indian pale ale. My favourite was the limes and lemon (so light, tart and citrusy) while the kettle sour is a very close second. The kettle sour is very quaffable and reliable.

Close up of the kettle sour (#5) and IPA (#2). Kettle sour #8 is summer & centennial flavour. Wasn’t a big fan of the IPA.

Out on the patio, took a few more photos because the flight was too pretty not to.

Couldn’t resist taking a photo of Breezy’s t-shirt. Future cat lady in the making 100%.

Blindman River Session Ale
DSC00078I’m not a huge ale fan but I figured I would give the Blindman river session ale a try. It’s one of their most popular ones apparently. Decent but a bit too hoppy, slightly bitter and dry for my taste buds.

If Lacombe was closer, I’d be back often. Love the sour beers and the patio was a perfect way to wile away a sunny afternoon. Totally worth a stop!
