Southern Alberta’s first Craft Brewery opening this spring
It’s now a quarter-century since the Molson company shut down the landmark House of Lethbridge brewery. But a group of Lethbridge business men are opening a new craft sized brewery that will attract consumers and tourists from across the province.
“We plan on making this Lethbridge’s newest tourist destination,” said Scott Crighton, spokesperson for WildCraft Brewery Inc.
“The site is designed for tours in addition to the manufacturing and restaurant,” said Crighton.
WildCraft will be in the centre of the new hotel hub in Lethbridge, but economic development of the city says it’s an area lacking in restaurants.
“That area has been built up with some new hotels recently and you have that corridor running out to Coaldale. There are some great pubs in the industrial area but this is another for people to stop.”
WildCraft Brewery Inc. is set to open in Spring 2015.
