Our story

Dedication to craft, connection to place, and a focus on innovation.

The tradition of brewing beer is a long and celebrated one, and one which Freehold Brewing Co. is proud to be a part of. At its heart, Freehold embodies a respect for that tradition, and it’s with care and precision that we strive to build upon it.

Freehold was founded in 2016 by Matt James and Tavis Agnew, who envisioned something more than a brewery. They knew that steadfast dedication to the art of brewing had paved the way for a grander pursuit: a brewery and restaurant dedicated to evolving the definition of those terms. A true and honest reflection of place, Freehold is a celebration of Alberta.

    We have some bad news. We did receive an Offer To Lease on a location in Inglewood, and deposits had been paid, but the landlord has decided that our proposed use of the location is not in their long-term interest. It would have been nice to have figured that out six months ago but, nevertheless, we have a busy week ahead of us revisiting some other locations to find our new home. Stay tuned for more updates on location.

We hope you can live with the anticipation of good news on the horizon.
