Beers of the World

May 28, 2018

Hot summer days beg for the cooling refreshment of an ice cold beer. If you’ve ever accidentally grabbed a warm brew from the fridge or the cooler, you know that it’s just not the same. Save yourself the agony of unchilled beverages by stopping at Co-op Wine Spirits Beer where you’ll find one of the largest selections of cold beer in Calgary. 

You won’t find just a few brands of chilled beer—instead ALL the beer kept on site at Co-op Wine Spirits Beer is kept in a massive walk-in cooler where you can browse around and find your favourite or choose something new and enticing.

Beers of the World at Co-op
When you head for the cold room, you’ll see Beers of the World emblazoned over the entrance. That’s not just a clever name; Co-op Wine Spirits Beer carries beer from a huge variety of countries, and of course, craft beer from all over Canada and the USA.

“We sell over 500 styles of craft beer in the Beers of the World cooler room,” says Melissa Rizzuto, Category Manager – Beer, at Co-op Wine Spirits Beer, Calgary Co-operative Association Limited. “You’ll find beer from 26 countries; from the Netherlands, to the Philippines, to Russia and of course from all over Canada.”

The cooler room at Co-op Midtown is over 1,900 square feet, and shelves are stacked six high, so everything is easy to find and within reach. Whether you want a hoppy style from California or a rice beer from Japan, the choices seem endless.

International Tastes or Local Flavour
At Co-op Wine Spirits Beer's Midtown location, there’s row upon row of international choices, all cooled to optimum temperature. This cooler is one of the biggest in Alberta, and standing by to help you navigate those arctic aisles are the friendly beer experts at the store.

Buy Fresh Beer at Co-op Wine Spirits Beer 
Co-op Wine Spirits Beer takes great pains to keep the stock rotated so the beverages here are the freshest they can be. There’s also a vast variety of formats available for purchase; there’s 24,12 and 6-packs, of course, but you can also find tallboy cans, larger bottles and even vintage style jugs. Strolling through the cooler is also an exercise in bottle and can art, since you can see the hottest beer label designs too.

The Best of Calgary Craft Brews & Local Suds
Co-op Wine Spirits Beer is also your home for all the best local and craft breweries from Calgary. 

“Local is so important to us here at Co-op Wine Spirits Beer. We carry about 105 beers just from Alberta alone. We want our customers to be able to shop locally and enjoy the best this province has to offer,” explains Rizzuto. "While Midtown is our largest location, you can find a huge selection of Beers of the World at all our locations across the city."

Champagne, Prosecco, Coolers & Sparkling 
Co-op’s Beers of the World cooler room also houses a selection of other chilled products which vary by location. You may find coolers, sparkling wines, ready-to-drink beverages and other items, so it makes sense to stop in for a chilled bottle on the way to your summer dinner party.

Whether you’re stocking up for a BBQ, filling the fridge, or just want a few cold ones to cool off after a weekend of chores, your nearest Co-op Wine Spirits Beer is likely to have just what you need to keep cool, hydrated and refreshed all summer long.
