Current Alberta Brewery of the Year winners, Blindman Brewing, brew out of sunny Lacombe. They are the first brewery in Canada to use a new technology to capture and reuse CO2 produced during fermentation. They, like their namesake river, meander—through beer styles and brewing techniques. From kettle-sours to heavily dry-hopped brews to barrel-aged beers, they create innovative, flavourful craft beer. They support the places they live in and the people that live there. They believe in being at the forefront of new and creative endeavours and in doing things just because folks tell them it can’t be done. Their growing crew brews out of sunny Lacombe, Alberta on a tricked-out, 2-vessel brewhouse. They blew the engine on their ’79 van, The Dream Machine, on our first delivery run so now they drive in shiny new vehicles with no souls.
