Where Only the Strongest Beers Survive

Born in the headwaters of Bench Creek in Yellowhead County, Alberta, Apex Predator Brewing is Alberta’s first rural destination brewery.  Our beers are forged out in the wilderness and honed by the only law out here: Survival of the Fittest.


Constructed by family and friends, this brewery is immersed in the untamed majesty and the harsh realities of the wild that make this province special. It isn’t just in Andrew’s backyard, we are nestled smack dab in the middle of the foothills, Alberta’s backyard.

That’s where we brew, but what really sets us apart is how we do it.

We push our techniques and recipes constantly – experimenting as if our lives depended on it. The goal is to balance premium ingredients perfectly in every glass, growler, can, cask, or keg we fill. Only then do we rest knowing these distinctive beers will be worth discovering over and over again.

SRM = Standard Reference Method. This is a measurement method to calculate the colour of beer where 2 SRM is super pale yellow and 40+ SRM is pitch black.

IBU = International Bittering Units. Another measurement, used to determine the level of bitterness in the beer. Something like a standard light American lager has about 8-10 IBUs, and a super hoppy double IPA can have 90+ IBU.

ABV = Alcohol by Volume.

The Taproom & Patio

Just outside of Edson, the brewery itself is the best spot to get your Apex Predator fix. The year-round brews are always on tap, our seasonal releases and latest canning runs will always be here first, and we regularly feature exclusive cask events to showcase recipes that aren’t available anywhere else. Our rustic taproom and sunny patio out in the wilderness provide the perfect setting for enjoying great beer. Come by to grab a pint and a snack, fill a growler, or take a tour the next time you’re around.
