Downtown – The heart of every city. In the heart of Regina, you’ll find its only downtown brewery, Pile O’ Bones Brewing Company. Founded by four award winning homebrewers, and all-round good guys, we handcraft our beers in small batches using traditional and cutting-edge brewing methods and ingredients.
Pile O’ Bones Brewing Co. gets its name from the original settlement that became Regina, Saskatchewan in 1882. The name came from the piles of buffalo bones that were piled up by First Nations hunters who would hunt the buffalo herds here prior to permanent settlement. It was believed the bison herds would come back to visit the piled up bones. When settlers arrived they called it Pile of Bones.
So we chose Pile O’ Bones as a nod to Regina’s past and to reflect our commitment to our community. It also symbolizes the resurgence of craft beer. Like the plains bison that narrowly escaped extinction, hand crafted beer narrowly survived the growth of large beer producers. Craft brewers are here to survive.
Our logo incorporates the bison and our name is stacked just like the piles of bones you might have seen towering over the prairie over a century ago.
We are craft beer drinkers and award-winning home brewers. We know you only get out of a beer what you put into it. That’s why we’re committed to using the best quality ingredients we can get our hands on and treating them with respect. Whether it’s malt and other grains, water, yeast or hops; we pay attention to every detail to ensure we’re producing a quality craft beer for you.
