Park Distillery has been artfully designed to reflect and complement the surrounding beauty of Banff National Park. This truly is a place where you can relax after a day at the hill or on the trail with an après drink and indulge in locally inspired wood-fired cuisine. As the name suggests, there is a full on-site distillery, and the Master Distiller will be making white spirits, 100% Alberta grain whiskey and bitters. The exciting distilling process is showcased behind a beautiful glass enclosure and distillery tours are available.
Blindman Brewery co-owner Hans Doef became well aware of the growth in food interest through Doef’s Greenhouses and felt there was an opportunity to start the vibrant brewery he had always wanted in his hometown of Lacombe. Doef and his long-time friend and co-owner Dave Vander Plaat have always been interested in brewing. Earlier in 2015, four other passionate beer geeks joined their team: Matt Willerton, Kirk Zembal, Shane Groendahl, and Adam Campbell. At Blindman Brewing, they believe in creating innovative, quality, flavourful craft beer; using the best ingredients; using local ingredients; and supporting the places they live in and the people that live there.
