In 2017, we quit our jobs to do something we’ve been dreaming about for the better part of a decade; start a brewery.  We named ours Best of Kin as a tribute to our father who we lost too soon. Our goals are simple: make the best damn beer we possibly can, so we can share it with the ones we love and raise a glass to the ones we’ve lost. We hope you’ll enjoy a pint with us soon.


After a long adventure finding a place to call home, Best of Kin is proud to announce that we are putting down some roots in the beautiful Sunalta community in Calgary! We are working our butts off to build Best of Kin Social with a full kitchen, micro-brewery, tap room, and patio for a 2022 opening. We are seeking help from our supporters to get Best of Kin Social up and running, serving you tasty beers and great food!

Barley Pop, a light lager with a little attitude. Made with Western Canadian ingredients for your drinking pleasure. Pairs well with camping, BBQ-ing, apres-ing, or lawn chair-ing. Enjoy, this beer is homegrown.


The first edition of our Big Hat IPA series will keep you warm on the longer winter nights with juicy tropical notes from the Pacific NW and subtle earthy flavours of the Pacific SW.  Strap in and stay cozy Alberta.


This is the beer that your dad keeps stocked in his bar fridge and goes straight to after a long day’s work.  A clean drinking lagered ale based on a traditional German recipe.

Best of Kin has
teamed up with
Coffee Company
(out of Cochrane,
AB) to bring you
this fall seasonal.
Sailor’s Delight is
a well-rounded
stout with the
addition of hickory
smoked coffee
beans, sugar kelp
and a pinch of sea
salt. This beer
combines the salty
coastal air with
your cozy morning
coffee. Arr!


Potluck IPA 2.0 is
a throwback to
one of BoK’s first
releases. This is a
twist on a
traditional IPA,
but with a scoop
from each
potluck dish!
Dive into this
Best of Kin
classic and enjoy
the fruit salad
aromas and the
malty biscuit-y
backbone. What
are you taking to
the potluck?


A New England style pale ale with low bitterness and a crisp finish. Notes of white wine, gooseberry and stone fruit. To burst the hop flavour and aroma, sauvignon blanc grape juice was added mid-fermentation. Curl up with a fancy wine glass and giddy up.


Best of Kin
Tafelbier is a
full flavoured
beer designed
to celebrate
the end of a
hard day's work.
Inspired by
Belgian and French
farmhouse ales
this refreshing
beer will drink
light, with hints
of spices and
citrus, and finish
dry on the palate.
Sit back, relax
and enjoy.
You deserve it.
