Medicine Hat Brewing Company

In 1912, the Medicine Hat Brewing Company began serving old fashioned lager, ale and stout to our city’s early, thirsty residents. It’s hot and dry here and we all know how a good beer can cool you off after a hard day’s work. When the Temperance Movement picked up, this popular brewery - One of Medicine Hat’s first - was forced to close.

But you can’t keep a good thing down. Over a century later, the Medicine Hat Brewing Company name was dusted off and again serves thirsty, hard-working Hatters Timeless Craft Beer.

You’ll have an early 1900’s experience when you are in our brewery where strangers become friends and the little things are celebrated.



Hells Basement Brewery

Our brewery’s name was inspired by the stories of Rudyard Kipling’s travels across Canada and his famous quote “This part of the country seems to have all hell for a basement, and the only trap door appears to be in Medicine Hat. And you don’t even think of changing the name of your town. It’s all your own and the only hat of its kind on earth.” – Rudyard Kipling 1907

Six courageous beer lovers from Medicine Hat along with their families, friends, and countless members of the community worked tirelessly for six months to bring quality, craft beer to Medicine Hat.

We take pride in our community, and we’ve worked with a variety of local businesses, tradespeople and artists to make our dream a reality. We’re excited to let you know that we’re now open for business. We can’t wait for you to come in and taste what we’ve created (if you’re over 18 of course).
