Our Story is Simple
Making good beer is easy when you're surrounded by good people
The ‘Angry Hen’ has found her happy place in Kaslo. When it was time for a change of scenery, a discerning mind would of course pick the finest scenery around! Just as discerning when it comes to beer, Kaslo was indeed very lucky to have the 'Angry Hen' land here (almost as lucky as the 'Angry Hen’ was to end up in Kaslo!). After finding the perfect location and designing the brewery to her high standards, Shirley was at last ready brew her first batch of beer in this plucky little village! That batch was... to paraphrase her language, a frustration and a disaster. Luckily, with the help of her friends, cooler heads prevailed and Shirley persevered. Outburst after outburst brought us to where we are now; loving life in the mountains, sharing laughs, only becoming mildly outraged at the most minor of inconveniences.
We strive to use only the finest, locally produced ingredients whenever possible. Our partnerships with local farmers allows us to source local fruit for our seasonal specialty brews and reduce waste by providing their livestock with spent grain from the brew process.
Owned and Operated by Women
We are proud to have mostly women working at the Angry Hen whether it be brewing the perfect beer, pouring that perfect pint, or working in the background to make sure everything else is getting done.
