That time I brewed beer @ [Theoretically] Brewing Co.

[Theoretically] Brewing Co. has been on the #YQL beer scene since 2015 and has participated for the past few years in the International Women’s Collaboration Brew Day. This day just so happens to coincide with International Women’s Day celebrated annually on March 8th.

I had the wonderful opportunity to help out with a crew of diverse women who were ready to get their hands dirty in the art form of micro-brewing.

Lethbridge’s Straight Dope

If you’re looking to score some LSD, Layne Whipple is not your man. However, he passed along a rare treasure from days long past – one that smelled more like old books than anything else.

This little capsule was put on the streets by the Travel and Convention Association of Southern Alberta, showing that people weren’t always so tight-assed (but I guess it was the 70s, after all). Hit the jump to see its contents!

Watch a man as he walks around downtown talking

Here’s a mostly-boring walking tour of historic downtown Lethbridge. If you listen closely at 5:00, Ted refers to the Henotic building as the "fucking #1 fire hall." He must really like it! Also, the guy at 6:30 has a nice strut. Now please tell me I wasn’t the only one who kept looking at his …

Track? Where we’re going, we don’t need track!

One of those landmarks which people instantly associate with Lethbridge would be the viaduct, or high-level bridge. It’s also on the masthead of this website (remind me to change that). Sometimes mistaken for being the inspiration for this city’s name, it’s quite the opposite. Bridges were first invented in Lethbridge in the 1820s, which then …

I think I’m getting the black lung, pop

Although Lethbridge didn’t start off as a mining town, it’s well known for that. And the whiskey trade, train bridge, chinook winds and Pilsner beer. So it’s National Mining Week – a big deal for a town that once called itself “Coalbanks” (I think they changed the name because of the Inn’s reputation).

First celebrated in 1996, National Mining Week recognizes the importance of the Canadian mining industry to the economic development of Canada.

It’s Historic Lethbridge Week!

This week celebrates the people and stories of our city, featuring concerts & exhibitions, film screenings, kid events, lectures & literature and other special events. The theme is the dirty 1930s.

Explore and embrace a special wild place

Today is the birthdate of Jack Miner; some dead guy I never heard about until today. While miners played an important part in the early days of Lethbridge (the city was once named Coalbanks), this “Miner” was important for another reason. “Wild Goose Jack,” as he was known, is the grandfather of Canada conservationism. He …

National Day of Remembrance of the Battle of Vimy Ridge

Today is the National Day of Remembrance of the Battle of Vimy Ridge. One of the defining moments for Canada, Lethbridge played an important part. Soldiers from the 20th and 39th batteries of the Royal Canadian Artillery fought in this battle. A monument to those soldiers stands at the 18th Air Defence Regiment Armoury, which since has been renamed the Vimy Ridge Armoury.
