Arrowhead Brewing Company is a small craft brewery with a focus on brewing great craft beer – consistently having at least 10 flavourful brews available, often including 3-4 seasonal beers.
Shawn, owner, has a knack for coming up with unique beers, such as rhubarb rye-p-a, coffee cream ale and tequila blaeberry hefeweizen. Using the real thing when brewing is a top priority and you’ll never get a beer with extracts, flavourings or preservatives.
Arrowhead also features original products made by local craft people – such as Sophie’s pickles, relishes, jellies and dog biscuits – all made with Arrowhead beer and Anchor Organics beer soaps and Gigi’s custom wooden growler crates. The coffee for the KickAss Coffee Cream Ale is produced right next door at Kicking Horse Coffee and the honey in the Original 83 Honey Brown Ale is created by bees that live in Shawn’s backyard.
The taproom is as well-crafted as the beers, decorated with a distinct 1950s gas-town theme, filled with mid-century antiques, signage, pin-ups and even a vintage gas pump.
Guests can view the brewing area enclosed behind a custom wall built of vintage windows. The taproom hosts up to 50 guests, with a spacious outdoor 4-season year-round patio with cozy blankets, pillows, heaters for winter days and cool-water misters on hot summer nights.
Typical to most taprooms, they offer 5, 10 and 16 ounce pours and flights. But what makes Arrowhead special is their dedication to small town vendors, serving yummy snacks made by local businesses that use real ingredients.
The popular Arrowhead Apparel clothing line is showcased in the taproom as well – Stop by to browse through their great selection.
