What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Being from Scotland originally I've always had a deep appreciation for whisky.
Along with a love of wine and fresh food it seemed like the perfect idea for my own wee Bothy here in Edmonton.
A 'bothy' is derived from the Gaelic word 'Bothan' meaning small hut.And is a common sight in the Highlands
What do you love most about your job?
Meeting new people is definitely the best part for myself.
This place has always felt like home, like family [to me], And that’s how I want the customers to feel....We’ve always tried to make this feel like everyone’s home away from home.
For more than 20 years, the brewers at Brewsters have handcrafted small batches of ales and lagers with the same eight-step process. The path from malting to filtration results in 10 original beers, including the crisp Flying Frog Lager and the hoppy Vampire Republic Czech Pilsner. This process also yields an ever-changing selection of seasonal beers, which range from fruity ales to German-style hefeweizens.
After they're funnelled through thoroughly sterilized draught lines, Brewsters' brews fill everything from bottles and kegs to the newly launched 1.89L growlers. Beers are also available in pints exclusively at the brewery's restaurant locations, including the newly reopened Castledowns location, where cooks complement pours with inventive pub food. Here braised short ribs perch atop poutine, bacon marmalade coats local bison burgers, and Hammerhead red ale mustard tops flatbreads.
