Canadian Pale Ale

Celebrating the spirit of our founders, Original 16 Canadian Pale Ale is brewed from only the absolute finest 100% two-row Prairie barley and five choice hop varietals. Our special and unique double-aged process results in an unparalleled smooth and refreshing beer that sets the standard for all other beers.

100% two-row barley

Using the very best 100% two-row Prairie barley (widely considered the best in the world), Original 16 Canadian Pale Ale is brewed with a unique malt blend of Metcalfe and Kendall varieties. The result is a smooth, refreshing beer, with a real beer taste that Western Canadian beer drinkers demand.

5 choice hop varietals

Carefully selecting and blending a unique mix of the choicest flavour, aroma, and bittering hops, Original 16 is a perfectly balanced, refreshing Canadian Pale Ale, with an incredibly smooth aftertaste.

Unique double‚Äďaged
process

Unlike some other beers, at Great Western Brewing we combine two different aging techniques for our Original 16 Canadian Pale Ale. Our beer is patiently matured for 7 days before being chilled to -1.5 and held there for a mandatory 24 day (minimum) cold aging to ensure maximum clarity, resulting in a smooth and clean-tasting beer beyond comparison.

Brewed with
care and attention

Great Western Brewing was founded when 16 employees banded together, and risked everything they had to pursue their dream of brewing the best beer possible. Employee founded and proudly independent to this day, that dream lives on in the remarkable passion, dedication, care and attention of the entire Great Western team using and blending a unique mix of the choicest flavour, aroma, and bittering hops, Original 16 is a perfectly balanced, refreshing Canadian Pale Ale, with an incredibly smooth aftertaste.
