Craft Beer Commonwealth Launches in Central Alberta with Landlock Ale

RED DEER COUNTY, AB – A unique collaborative brewing project opening soon in Alberta’s Red Deer County has announced the release of its first beer.

Craft Beer Commonwealth is a new joint venture between two previously established Central Alberta breweries – Blindman Brewing in Lacombe and Red Hart Brewing in Red Deer County – as well as Red Shed Malting in Penfold.

Set to open next month in the new Gasoline Alley Farmers’ Market, Craft Beer Commonwealth will be focused on producing beer made with local ingredients, and will also offer a rotating selection of beers from other Central Alberta breweries in its taproom.

To preview its upcoming official opening, Craft Beer Commonwealth has released Landlock Ale (5.1% abv), a “light, crisp, aromatic pale ale” brewed using ingredients grown within 10 km of Red Deer – including malt from Red Shed and hops from Hard Hels Hops – and developed in collaboration with all of the region’s breweries.

Landlock Ale is available now at breweries and beer retailers throughout Central Alberta. For more details, see the Craft Beer Commonwealth website and Facebook page.
