Travois Ale Works looks forward to meeting Hatters on Feb. 24

Travois Ale Works, Medicine Hat’s downtown brewery, is pleased to announce that it is attending the Alberta Food and Beverage Expo on February 24, 2018, providing attendees a first glimpse of what’s to come from one of Alberta’s smallest breweries.

The new brewery is located at 612 3rd Street SE. Renovations are currently underway to transform the 1930s-era property into a seven barrel brewery with 55 seat tasting room. The brewery is expected to open to the public in summer 2018.

“Our hope is that the brewery will create an incentive for more people to invest in downtown and make it a cool place to be,” says Todd Wiebe, a partner with Travois Ale Works. “We look forward to sharing our vision for the brewery with attendees of the Food and Beverage Expo.”

As part of the renovation process, Travois Ale Works received a $30,000 grant from the City of Medicine Hat’s Downtown Development Incentive Program. Funding helped with architectural drawings, infrastructure upgrades, and aesthetic enhancements to the property.

“Travois Ale Works’ decision to locate in our downtown core shows that City Council’s effort to revitalize downtown is paying off,” says Mayor Ted Clugston. “The Downtown Development Incentive Program was fully subscribed in 2017, paying out $284,000 in total, including the grant to Travois Ale Works.”

Invest Medicine Hat worked closely with Travois Ale Works, assisting with market research, government liaison, and business development.

“Travois Ale Works is a great addition to the downtown core,” says Ryan Jackson, CEO of Invest Medicine Hat. “It’s a significant development that brings new jobs, new visitors, and a new sense of excitement to downtown Medicine Hat.”
