Craft Beer Red Deer

Craft Beer Nation is locally owned and operated by Josh & Erin Forbes.   Here are some fun facts about us:  

  • We are married and genuinely like each other.   

  • We both grew up in Saskatchewan but have called Red Deer home for over 15 years.  

  • We have a young family and we want you to feel welcome to bring yours into the store. That includes those with four legs.  

  • We really love beer.  But not even close to the same kind. Josh is all about the IPA's, the porters, the stouts and just about anything that isn't fizzy, yellow beer. Erin is more a lighter, fruit infused, ale kind of gal.  We think this means our store will have a little bit for everyone.

  • We like to run.  Partially because it feels good and partially because it means you can eat and drink more. 

  • We love our city.  We love giving back, supporting other small businesses and whatever we can do to make this place shine. 

We know that without our staff, our store would just be a big old cooler full of great beer.  To learn a bit more about the people behind the counter, click here.
