Piston broke brewing

Brooks, Alberta

What's better than a cold beer? A cold beer you brewed in your own basement! On tap - ready to share with friends and family that swing by. Craig and Lance, long-time friends and both local heavy duty mechanics, have taken their hobby and passion for great beer and turned it into a business opportunity. They'll be opening Brooks' first craft beer brewery this fall - Piston Broke Brewing!

I popped into their basement set up recently to document where it all began. If you follow along on their social media accounts, you'll see the building process they're going through to get their new shop ready for customers. And not to mention, the size of their new equipment completely dwarfs this in-home system!

I may have been too pregnant to appreciate their tasty creations during my most recent visit, but my husband assured me they were all great!

I think I can speak for the entire community and say we cannot wait for your grand opening!
