The backyard experiment

This sea-can, built by our friends at Honomobar, is whatever we want it to be – ever evolving and adaptable to any form.  This is where the creativity begins!

  • A retro lounge slinging one-of-a-kind cocktails & featuring unique local art
  • An ice cream parlour scooping Yelo’d ice cream
  • A wine bar for your next corporate event
  • A keg release party featuring the latest & greatest from Sea Change Brewing
  • A stage for a concert, DJ, comedian, and many other events

The possibilities are endless — one of the many great things about booking The Backyard for a private function is the ability to transform the kiosk into just about anything to meet your needs. Make it yours.

Analog Brewing

At The Backyard, we love local craft beer. We love the guys & gals making it and that can-do attitude to make something great. If you haven't met the team at Analog Brewing, you need to!  Visit their unique tasting room, enjoy a pint of one of their amazing beers, and best of all, enjoy their In Another Castle Peach Mango Milkshake IPA at The Backyard in our very own custom label (its also the mural on our washroom container!!) Getting to know Alberta's nerdiest brewery:

Analog was created by two best friends from college and a love for craft beer/video games. While we both held different jobs through our lives we eventually got tired of the grind and sought out to do something that combined our passions of craft beer and being massive nerds. In 2018 we made our dream a reality and thus Analog Brewing was born. Brewing both classic styles and unique oddities, Analog strives to ensure craft beer is both fun and approachable.
