Welcome to Half Hitch Brewing Company
Building the brewery was a family affair, and it was a wild ride. We all found ourselves in roles we never expected, like Britt wrapping the building while 7 months pregnant, or Kyle almost boiling Chace inside the new tanks. But we made it through, and in June 2016, we cursed our first batch of beer. We were in the big leagues now and from brewing, packaging, selling and sampling, we were all hands on deck to get our beer into the hands of Albertans.
In 2018, we had the opportunity to open a second restaurant in the heart of Canmore, and it was a great experience. But after a year, we decided to focus more on our own product development and brewery operations. It was a tough decision, but we’re grateful for the opportunity.
But we didn’t stop there! We wanted to push ourselves and try something new, so in 2020, we opened a beer and pizza restaurant called “The Mash”
Using upcycled spent grain as part of the pizza dough, we’ve created a unique dining experience that combines our love of craft beer and delicious food. Since its opening, The Mash has been a great success, winning multiple awards for its innovative menu and unique approach.
We’re proud of what we’ve accomplished and are constantly looking for ways to improve and evolve. Thanks for joining us on this journey!
