Microbrewery planned for Drumheller core

There’s something brewing in downtown Drumheller and come next spring  Valley  Brewing will be pulling pints of perfectly crafted suds.
    Work has begun on Valley Brewing. It is the brainchild of local Drumheller businessmen Nick Sereda and Ryan Sisson. The plan is to build a fully functioning microbrewery and tasting room in the downtown core on the lot where Jurassic Ink is currently located. Sereda says for him, the idea is about being able to create opportunity for himself in his hometown, and also help build the community.
    “We saw the potential. Obviously, we thought it would be something cool for the Town of Drumheller and everyone in the town to support and get behind and make it their own, and also the influx of tourists during the summer, we’d like to take advantage of that and give them an experience,” said Sereda.
    He said the plan is to tell a story with each one of their beers.
    “It will be based on history, all the way back to the coal mining days, the rich history of agriculture here and we will touch on dinosaurs a bit, and the geological aspects too,” said Sereda.
    While the brewery is in its infancy, he projects they will start out with a few brews made in-house. They will be available in cans and through the tasting room on tap. Sereda says the beers will be what is expected from a microbrewery, with a variety ranging from the easy to drink to a little more hopped- up.
    Malting will be done off-site and Sereda says ideally the would like to partner with local producers.
    ‘We’d like to source it as close as possible,” he said.
    Already there has been work at the site, and home on the lot has been demolished to make way for the carriage house style building to house the brewery.
    They are aiming to have it up and running by spring 2019.
    “We accomplished a little bit already… and we’re here to put the time in,” said Sereda.
