Brewing & Distilling

Food & Drink

Medicine Hat has developed our taste for liquid refreshment.

Hell’s Basement Brewery

With a name inspired by Rudyard Kipling’s famous quote about Medicine Hat having, “all Hell for a basement,” — due to the abundance of natural gas found under the city in the early 1900s, Hell’s Basement Brewery continues to bring stories and good times to Medicine Hat. With walls decorated in hundreds of stickers from breweries and small shops around Alberta, the brewery is a hot spot for live music and tasty beer. The energy throughout is emphasized by the echoes of laughter and conversation. Grab a cold one and visit until your heart’s content inside this inviting brewery.

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. When the Temperance Movement picked up, this popular brewery was forced to close. Over a century later, the Medicine Hat Brewing Company name was dusted off and again serves pristine and tasteful house-brewed beer with an impressive food menu. Sip back and relax, and order yourself a flight to indulge and relish in the variety of aromas each beer embodies.

Travois Ale Works 

This micro-brewery has everything beer — beer slushies, beer cocktails, canned and bottled beer, and good ol’ beer on tap. Revolutionary American and traditional European ales are brewed in small batches inside a historic brick building in downtown Medicine Hat. Indulge in a flight inside their public tasting room, and take a peek at their small but mighty food menu, take part in one of their trivia nights, or simply have a seat on the patio and soak in the downtown views with a cold drink.

Grit City Distillery

This small batch craft distillery on South Railway Street has been producing a variety of vodka, gin, rums, absinthe, and whiskeys; using traditional botanicals and locally sourced ingredients, since 2017. Have a seat and take a look at their extraordinary cocktail menu that features the liquors and liqueurs made in-house. On Fridays, try one of their extravagant fishbowl features that’s sure to hit the spot with an in-house dish from their full food menu.
