Big Rock Brewery
The Big Rock Brewery is located in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. The brewery was founded in 1985 by Ed McNally. After forming the Big Rock brewing company he hired Bernd "Peppy" Pieper, considered to be one of the best brewmasters in the world. McNally and Pieper built the Big Rock brewing facility up to be the most state-of-the-art facility in North America.
The Big Rock Brewery brews such beers as Traditional Ale, Grasshöpper Wheat Ale, Warthog Cream Ale, Big Rock Honey Brown, Pale Ale, Black Amber Ale, Köld Glacier Lager, McNally's Extra Ale, Rock Creek Cider and Alberta Genuine Draft (AGD).
The Big Rock Brewery brews only unpasteurized beer. Pasteurization is very common in the beer industry, used to give beer an extended shelf life. However, paseurization tends to dull the flavour, flatten the taste and interferes with the carbonation process. Because of this, Big Rock has chosen not to pasteurize their beer and brew only fresh, natural beer.
