village brewery

Some of the best things happen over beer. Ideas are born, friendships forged, deals struck. Village Brewery began that way too, with friends sharing beers and dreams for a community brewery. A brewery that would support Calgary’s artists and craftspeople. A brewery that would create the excellent ales and lagers our friends and neighbors deserve. It takes a village to raise a beer. And a beer to raise a village.

Metrovino

The way we look at it is we can offer more than simply an extensive array of hand-picked wine selections. Sure, we’re more than able to make these wines part of your life by helping you select them for your next meal or occasion, but we can animate them by giving you their story.  When a wine is fully alive in our minds, the flavours that cross our palate seem to be just that much more vivid and our selection of many hard-to-find small producers, along with our staffcan guide you in your search for the perfect wine.

Rosso coffee roasters

At Caffe Rosso, we have our sights set on great coffee and even better hospitality. Our coffee is always fresh, and is roasted in house at our Ramsay location on a state-of-the-art Probat coffee roaster. We spend countless hours profiling, tasting and tinkering with each coffee that comes into our cafe. Our goal is to highlight the coffees sweetness, balance out its properties and leave a pleasant aftertaste in your mouth after every sip.
