HOW IT ALL BEGAN
Randal was introduced to home-brew by a friend and loved it. With his new enthusiasm for homebrewed beer, his wife thinking he needed a hobby bought him his first kit. Little did she realize where this would lead!
So with the help of a couple of buddies, they gathered together in his kitchen to make their first batch of home brew. After a few batches, Randal wanted to have more control over the brewing process so he switched to dry malt and started experimenting with different hops, yeasts and special grains. From this point forward he was hooked! Soon after he joined the Edmonton Home Brewers Guild discovering all-grain brewing and entered the world he wanted to brew in.
That was nearly 20 year ago and since then Randal has brewed hundreds of batches and refined his recipes multiple times. He has learned that quality ingredients, attention to the brewing process along with a healthy dose of curiosity has enabled him to do what he loves the most; craft his beer to put a smile on the faces of those who drink it.
The raven is sometimes known as "the wolf-bird” being seen as curious, mysterious and inspiring. A wolf symbolizes loyalty and family connection. Wolves live in community sharing daily life, caring for one another and forming friendships. Ravens and wolves have similar qualities and enjoy a close association. These traits gave birth to the vision for RavenWolf Brewing Co. Ltd.
Owned and operated by husband and wife team Randal and Jan Gillett, the brewery and taproom is truly “FROM”, “IN” AND “FOR” our local community. Committing both time and resources, they have always had a heart for the Tri-Region and are known for extending warm and open hospitality. So a brewery with taproom is just a “new space” and the next step for them to continue bringing people together. Their dream has taken them to them to visit and learn from other brewers throughout Alberta and British Columbia giving them a strong understanding of the industry, as well as the core philosophies and skills important to craft brewing.
Their vision is to focus on quality, connections and inspire you to - “Craft Your Life”.
