Small Business Profile: Citizen Brewing Company

So happy to see Citizen Brewing Company finally open its doors between Highland Park Community Association, Calgary and Tuxedo Park Community Centre. Calgary-Klein’s first micro-brewery! 

The name Citizen speaks to the spirit of the business – that it is by the people and for the people. Ric (also owner of Midtown Kitchen & Bar in Kensington) and MacKenzie are the two proud owners behind the operation.

They are launching with 4 beers available, and it will continue rotating each season. The kitchen is a food truck and the menu is based on southern barbecue. In fact, their “Hijacked IPA” is named in memory of their first food truck that had been stolen.

Glad Calgary is becoming the prairie’s new capital of micro-breweries. Because of recent changes our NDP government has made, Citizen Brewing’s patio is coming to fruition. I hope to see many neighbours there.
