Cheers to Troubled Monk Brewery

I (recently) had the pleasure of visiting the community of Red Deer and stopping by Troubled Monk Brewery – a truly homegrown business focused on crafting a world class beer and supporting the local community.

I (recently) had the pleasure of visiting the community of Red Deer and stopping by Troubled Monk Brewery – a truly homegrown business focused on crafting a world class beer and supporting the local community.

Joined by local MLAs Kim Schreiner and Barb Miller, we toured the facility with co-founder Charlie Bredo, whose passion for making good, enjoyable beer was really inspiring.

It’s Albertans like Charlie who will be able to invest in their business thanks to the new Alberta Small Brewers Development Program. Announced just last week, this program is designed to invest in Alberta business, promote new jobs and help diversify our economy.

We know that beer jobs are good jobs. Not only will this grant allow small brewers to grow their business, but it will indirectly help encourage local agriculture and rural Alberta. Not to mention, Alberta consumers will benefit from more selection of great products that are created right here in our province.

I am proud to be a part of a government that stands up for Albertans and Alberta businesses.

We’re focused on creating good jobs here at home in Alberta – not in other provinces as the Wildrose or PCs would prefer.

So next time you’re planning a summer get together consider popping down to Troubled Monk Brewery for a Pesky Pig Ale or Red Deer’s other local brewer, Drummond Brewing Company for their refreshing Drummond Lager.

Alberta beer will always be my first choice, simply because it’s the best beer in the world.

Joe Ceci, Alberta President of Treasury Board and Finance Minister
