Sharing Great Beer Over Great Stories

Indulge in the Adventure.

<  Click + Drag  >

The Screaming Retriever Brewing Company was established to provide a higher connection between nature, humans, our favourite pooches, and to enjoying a great beer after a great adventure.

Our CEO and Brew Master Ryan Kemp owns two Nova Scotia Duck Tollers named Titus and Kuma. This type of dog is bred to toll waterfowl into favourable positions for hunters, after which they become relentless retrievers! They are known to scream with excitement, especially around water. Ryan’s eldest Toller, Titus, has an exceptionally high-pitched scream when playing in the water – especially when “fetching” around the splash created by a stone.
This means a great day for us looks like taking our Toller Retrievers to the rivers and mountains in and around our beautiful province of Alberta. We want our beer to be a catalyst for you to get outside, with dogs, friends, family, or just you and nature.
