There’s no doubt that the craft beer scene has taken off in major cities around the world. On any given night of the week, there’s sure to be some thirsty patrons eager to get their fill of hops, bitters, and malt served up in refreshing carbonated form. The popularity of the craft beer movement shows no signs of slowing down and local establishments here in Medicine Hat are glad to quench the seemingly endless thirst for independently produced handcrafted beer. If you’re looking to add a few stamps to your craft beer passport, here are a few breweries you may want to check out when you're in town!
 

Medicine Hat Brewing Company 

Featuring a wide selection of unique brews and delicious locally sourced food, The Medicine Hat Brewing Company is a favourite among residents and visitors alike. There’s a little something for all beer lovers, from the light and citrusy Burnside Blood Orange Ale to the rich and creamy Gentleman’s Stout. Check out some events, including Growler Fill Thursdays, Fish & Chip Fridays, Game Night and the monthly Cask Night where you can sample a one-night-only beer creation. In December, they will be celebrating their third anniversary with a bash at the brewery!
 

Hell’s Basement Brewery 

Don’t let the name fool you – Hell’s Basement Brewery is one of the friendliest places in town to go if you’re in the mood for fine-crafted beer, ale, stout, cider, root beer, soda, and even milkshake! In their taproom, you can try a selection of their All Hops for a Basement IPA or their Fruit Bat Raspberry while admiring an artistic collage of beer labels. You can also go on a behind-the-scenes tour of the facilities to get an insider's look at the brewing process.
 

Travois Ale Works 

Travois Ale Works is a hip new addition to the Medicine Hat craft beer scene. Their brewers have a fresh and spontaneous approach to the brewing process,  producing unique limited edition small-batch beers. Offerings are created, perfected and then they evolve as recipes undergo revisions. Patrons can try flights and pints of one-of-a-kind traditional beer in the tasting room housed within a beautifully restored heritage building in downtown Medicine Hat.
