Introducing Siding 14

The latest microbrew to come online is the Siding 14 Brewing Company based out of Ponoka, Alberta. The mandate is to grow a better beer – that’s the idea that brought together a Barley Grower, a Hop Grower, and a Brewer to form Siding 14 Brewing Company. They start with their own craft-grown ingredients, highlighting their quality and character with an expert Brewer’s attention to detail.

Why Siding 14? It’s a nod to the rich Alberta and western Canadian railway heritage. Before the town of Ponoka was named, it was Siding 14 of the Calgary-Edmonton Railway Company. The siding was a supply point for steam locomotives making the run between the two major cities. The railway not only provided transportation between small towns and major centers, it was historically the heart of communication and social interaction in communities across the province.

The two beers new to deVines was a hit with the gang, pictured left to right:

Siding 14 Ten Wheeler IPA (Alberta, Canada) – 6 Cans – $17.49

Siding 14 Brakeman Brown Ale (Alberta, France) – 6 Cans – $16.99
