Born and bred in Slave Lake, Ben can recite every 90’s movie while simultaneously bench pressing two full 50L kegs. “COULD I BE ANY MORE STRONG”. Starting out in the electrical field, him and partner Chad began brewing upstairs in their spare time. Ben lives in Slave Lake with his wife and two girls.

Favourite Beer : Wild IPA – Available NOW in the TapRoom

Native, but not native to Slave Lake, born a whopping 120km away in High Prairie, Chad moved to Slave Lake in 1991. An instrument technician by trade, Chad is often still found working out in the field when not in the brewery. Proud papa to two cute girls, Chad and his wife are expecting their third girl in the new year!

Unemployed, Kennedy quickly became a Friday Night Regular. On a particular buzzed Friday night, she finally worked up the nerve to ask for a job. Unable to deny that she was the funniest person they had ever met, she was hired on the spot. A stint as a beer rep was short lived when on her first day at a Liquor Store she was in, was robbed, she decided that the Brewery was where she belonged. Now almost two years later Kennedy has become the TapRoom Manager. You can almost always find her in the Brewery between Thursday-Saturday, whether for work or pleasure.


When not in the Brewery, Robyn is playing the role of Super Teacher. Originally from Newfoundland Robyn moved to Alberta 7 years ago, when she got her first teaching job in good ol’ High Level. If not teaching or in the TapRoom, Robyn is most likely working on her Masters homework. Did we mention she is a total science nerd? Ask her anything and she knows. Fun Fact: Robyn once grew tomatoes is space! Brought them down, and made Space Salsa! Next time you’re in, ask her about it!

When we aren’t brewing, cleaning, or hanging out in the TapRoom, these are the things we like to do.

Slave Lake has many things to offer, these are some of our favourites!

Hike Lily Lake

Arguably one of Slave Lake’s most beautiful spots is Lily Lake. The trail starts at The Marten Mountain Viewpoint and just 2.8km in and you will find yourself at the lake. Benches and a Dock provide you with the perfect spot to enjoy a picnic! The lake is stocked with eastern brook trout so visitors can enjoy some fishing after the hike down. Bring some friends, some food, and enjoy the backcountry of the Provincial Park.


Slave Lake and surrounding areas are stocked with good camping spots.

In fact just a hop, skip, and jump down the street and you can find yourself at one of these beautiful camp grounds Big Fish Bay, whether you are looking to set-up tent, park your camper, or rent a cabin, Big Fish can help you out. Did we mention its right on the lake, plus boat & sea-doo rentals are available through Dog Island Marine Rentals.

If your looking for a place right on the river Norm’s Walley Camp or Roland on the River is the spot for you!

A little further out of town you will find Marten River Campground, with over 100 sites, both unserviced and with power. Sites are well-spaced and surrounded by trees, with a few spots right by the lake. There are many amenities here, including an amphitheatre, playground, sewage disposal, and showers. Hike or bike the trails, relax on the natural sand beach, enjoy fishing or boating on the lake, and visit the Boreal Centre for Bird Conservation just down the road.
