our story

Banded Peak opened in 2016 with a passion for making beer taste as good as it does on a mountain top.

Based in Calgary Alberta

Our brewers have access to some of the best raw materials in the world - Alberta Malt, which is used in the majority of Banded Peaks brews. Banded Peak has an ever-expanding collection of beers that challenge the traditional styles, including five Core beers - available all year-round, multiple seasonal beers, and dozens of one-off launches every year.

Based in Calgary Alberta

We're fortunate to be in the heart of one of the world's premier barley-growing regions. This gives us access to the best ingredients in the world - Alberta Malt, which forms the backbone of many of our beers.

We don't just make beer. We create experiences. We brew consistently fresh style-bending beers, all crafted for adventure!
