Edmonton’s Beer Revolution Will Not Be Televised (Go and See It for Yourself)

From our Love Handles files on beer bars we love: In the capital of Alberta, a broad and rotating selection of local and North American craft beers are just the thing to go with square-shaped, thin-crust, hot-chicken pizzas.

What it is: This lively beer bar and pizza house at Unity Square, just west of downtown, features two dozen taps. There are two or three house favorites, but the rest are ever-changing. Beer Revolution is famous locally for their unique square-shaped, thin-crust pizzas, including varieties such as Nashville hot chicken or bánh mi. The full menu goes deeper, from large “snacks” such as tuna poke and pulled-pork stromboli to burgers and then on to apple pizza for dessert.

Why it’s great: This is the perfect place in Edmonton for those who want to try new beers, from the best of local and Canadian craft to U.S. all-stars such as Breakside and Hop Butcher for the World, with plenty of appearance from the rare and the seasonal. The digital tap list looks like an airport departure screen; when a keg kicks, the screen refreshes to show the new offering. Here’s a novelty: A half-pint glass is exactly half the price of a pint, encouraging smaller measures and the sampling of a wider variety.
