Hard Knox Brewery
Siblings Pamela and Cory made the leap into craft brewing during the economic downturn of 2016, so it really was the “hard knock life” that set in motion Hard Knox™ Brewery, which opened in 2018 and won an Alberta Beer Award within 10 months of the launch.
“We offer many styles of craft beer using local hand-harvested specialty ingredients to create beers such as blonde ales, Belgium wheats, browns, and porters – plus specialty brews for each season,” says Pamela Lyken. “Our award-winning beers are unpasteurized and do not have preservatives. There is a style for every palate, even wine drinkers!”
You can enjoy a beer inside or outdoors. Lyken explains, “You can enjoy a cozy atmosphere inside or bring a picnic to our outdoor beer gardens, which allows you to bring your whole family – including your dog.” The outdoor garden also has a selection of games.
“Hard Knox is truly a destination to experience exceptional beers while enjoying time with family and friends,” Lyken concludes.
The brewery has just celebrated its first anniversary. Learn why it’s a local favourite by visiting 445, 1 Avenue NE, Black Diamond, AB, or online at hardknoxbrewery.com. You’ll also find them on Facebook, and Twitter @HardKnoxBrewery, and Instagram @hardknoxbrewery.
