Best Craft Beer Saskatoon: Fill Up Your Growlers This Weekend with These Microbrews

Where to fill up the best craft beer in Saskatoon

In celebration of Top of the Hops, happening this weekend at Prairieland Park, this post gives you the cream of the crop in the province’s craft brewing scene. Fill up your glass with something local! And don’t forget to visit me at the Do Sask booth to build your own pretzel necklace – good craft beer needs good craft snacks.

It’s technically spring, but the weather has been so hot it’s feeling like summer. Just as soon as the patios start bustling and the BBQs begin sizzling, people look for new ways to quench their thirst. One popular way to do that is to fill up a growler from a local microbrewer with the best craft beer in Saskatoon. 

As the craft beer scene in Saskatchewan continues to grow, with each year it adds a new crop of beer lovers to the province. For example, there’s an active “Beer lovers of Saskatchewan” group on Facebook where people discuss the best (and worst) of our local brews.

Recently, a member asked where he should go to fill up his growlers for the weekend. Here’s a look at the recommendations for best craft beer in Saskatoon, as listed by active group members. I’ve also added in top-ranking brews from Saskatoon Brewery Tour attendees’ feedback.

Did I miss a good one? Get in touch with me at info@dosask.com.

BEST CRAFT BEER SASKATOON

Most mentions goes to High Key Brewing Co. London Fog Porter, White Off the Hop White IPA, Jolly Roger Ale & Pomegranate Pale Ale

I’m really loving High Key right now, especially their London fog porter.”

“Nope, the london fog is terrible. No one should drink it so there is more for me.”

21st Street Brewery Hoodless IPA & Sweet Lea Kettle Sour

9 Mile Brewing Co. No. 229 Pale Ale

Nokomis Craft Ales Brown

Black Bridge Brewery Double IPA

Paddock Wood Heartstopper Hot Chocolate Stout

Prairie Sun Brewery Prairie Lily Lager

Pile o’ Bones Brewing Co. Simcoe Smash “Get that in your face hole ASAP”

Pick 10: Keep it Chill this Summer with Ice Cream Dates in Saskatoon

Confetti Cone at Chardon Ice Cream

It’s only the middle of May, but the city of Saskatoon has already seen temperatures hit close to 30 degrees. As quickly as the heat comes, so do cravings for ice cream in Saskatoon. Why not satisfy your urges for quality time with bae and something sweet at the same time? An ice cream date is just the ticket.

Now that you’re out of your winter hibernation-mode, ice cream business owners are grabbing their scoops and hitting the ground running. The choices on this list come from a mixture of personal taste, social media reviews, and some good ol’ fashioned qualitative research. I really do love my job!

Without further ado, here are my top dates for ice cream in Saskatoon:

Cover your cone in a new flavour dip!

Ice Cream in Saskatoon: Confetti Cone at Chardon Ice Cream

Chardon Ice Cream has an array of dipping sauces for their soft-serve ice cream. Sure they have standbys like chocolate and butterscotch, but you won’t be disappointed if you try something new. Last summer, I ordered both the toasted coconut and confetti dip flavours (on separate days, folks). Each flavour was delicious in its own way!

Where: McKercher Drive

Create a personalized, blended-fresh fro yo.

Homestead Ice Cream is a Saskatoon hard ice cream lover tradition. However, on top of wacky new flavours of hard ice cream, they also have a frozen crushed fruit machine. I like getting blueberries with yogurt, squished into a waffle cone. If you’re vegan, you can order your crushed fruit with a banana base instead.

Where to get it: Victoria Avenue

Show your taste buds some Sask pride.

Get your hands on a cup of limited edition gelato using Saskatchewan-grown ingredients. Jerry’s Food Emporium offers a range of hard ice cream flavours, real-cream soft serve, fresh-made gelatos, and other dietary-restricted treats. Try the Rider Pride flavour on game day!

2 locations: 8th Street & 51st.

Come for the ice cream, stay for the dim sum.

Like many small businesses in Saskatoon, Noodle King & Ice Cream Queen is a shop that wears many hats. Taste one of over 32 flavours of gelato while you wait to get in for authentic Asian cuisine. Or try 30 flavours of hard ice cream. Plus, they have plenty of other desserts on the menu, including bubble tea and cheesecake.

Where to get it: 2nd Avenue N

The ice cream that gives you a reason to Instagram again.

According to one of the owners of Fable Ice Cream, the young couple tasted their way across America to find the best ice cream flavours before setting up shop last year in Saskatoon. If you haven’t seen their quintessential black-napkin-sugar-cone close up on your Insta feed, you’ve likely been living under a rock.

Where to get it: 633 Avenue H S

Scoop one up at the only double-decker ice cream bus this side of London.

This one of a kind roadside attraction located across from the famous Delta Bessborough is actually an ice cream shack. Plan to make a detour at Bus Stop Refreshments after a walk along the Meewassin River Valley. They have traditional hard ice cream flavours like Tiger Tiger, but I like the pumpkin pie frozen yogurt.

Where to get it: Spadina Crescent E

Shop vintage, sip coffee, and then break for dessert.


Saskatoon small business owners come up with some interesting business concepts! Back to Coffee Beans was recently featured by Andrew, an ex-Saskatchewanderer, in  a Tourism Saskatoon video. With all the variety under one roof, it certainly looks like a fun way to spend a half-hour or so.

Where to get it: 33rd Street

Say dybosia* after an authentic Ukrainian dinner on the river.

Traditional Ukrainian culture is a strong influence in the patchwork quilt of people that make up Saskatoon. So it makes sense that an ice cream shop nestled in front of the Remai Modern Art Gallery also serves Ukrainian sausage and perogies.
*Dybosia translates to “Cheers” in Ukrainian.

Where to get it: River Landing Splash Park

While the next two ice cream in Saskatoon date spots aren’t locally owned, they are gaining hype for their shareable, elaborate shakes and desserts.

Split your West Coast Bingsoo with someone special.

Ice Cream in Saskatoon: Bingsoo from Snowy Village
Photo via Snowy Village Facebook Page.

Inspired by East Asia, Snowy Village creates frozen desserts using fresh fruit, red beans, jelly, and cereals. Top yours with a scoop of ice cream, gelato, or frozen yogurt and whipped cream.

Where to get it: Preston Avenue S

Eat the power puff of internet-viral desserts.

JusFruit is another Asia-driven menu, featuring bubble tea, fruit drinks, candy-coated milkshakes, and more. The one thing I’m hoping to get my hands on this summer is the Hong Kong-Style Ice Cream Egg Puff Waffle. That name is a mouthful. Mmm… mouthful. *drools*

Where to get it: Attridge Drive

Ice Cream in Saskatoon Honorable Mention:

Open only for special events and private functions, the Mean Green Ice Cream Machine food truck is a staple of Saskatoon summer festivals. I like the Saskatoon Berry Milkshake. Find them using the link below for live updates on their wherabouts.

Where to get it: http://snackmap.com/

You have at least 16 weeks of nice weather to enjoy each of these ice cream dates in Saskatoon. And if you finish them all and want to try something new, Do Sask has plenty of other ideas to keep your summer dates on point.

Registration: https://pop-upclothingswap.eventbrite.ca

Cost: Suggested donation is $10. Registration is by donation and all proceeds go back to the YWCA Turning Points Program.

Parking: There is a pay lot and street parking is free after 6 pm.

Speakers: Local style gurus Maygen Kardash, Sarah Gaudry, and K-Lyn Bonogofski

MAYGEN KARDASH

“For more than a decade, Maygen Kardash has been a wardrobe stylist for television, music videos, print, and both artist and personal consults. She is also a musician, frequent lifestyle guest on Global Morning, featured contributor to Refined Lifestyles Magazine, freelance writer, Brownie leader, and most important, loving mama to 3-year-old daughter Petra and baby boy Paris.

SARAH GAUDRY

“Sarah Gaudry is the owner of The Knick, a curated vintage clothing and accessories shop that is dedicated to handpicking the best finds from all over North America. With over 20 years of experience in tailoring, personal shopping, and designing, Sarah has been able to use these skills to help shape The Knick into one of Saskatoon’s premiere vintage shops.”

K-LYN BONOGOFSKI

“K-Lyn has been heavily involved in the fashion community, since moving to Saskatoon from a small city in Alberta. K-Lyn held the position of marketing co-ordinator for the Saskatoon Fashion and Design Festival, as well as styled and organized the Living Green Expo Fashion Show in coordination with Stasia Boutique. Her consulting business focuses on personal shopping, and closet organization for those who want a fashion lift. K-Lyn has a passion for consignment shopping and believes that you do not need to break your wallet in order to be fashionable.”

Follow: https://www.instagram.com/k.bonogofski/

Although the spirit of donating clothing to people in need is always appreciated, about 85% of our clothing eventually ends up in a landfill. For this reason swapping instead of buying brand new clothes is an exciting way to reduce, reuse, and recycle.

To start the night off, get fashion hack advice by local stylists to show you how to reuse your clothes in multiple seasons.

HOW IT WORKS

1. Come with 5 – 12 items of clothing, or accessories to add to the swap collection pool.

2. After the welcome and brief styling workshop, swap shopping will officially begin. Pick any garments and accessories up to the amount you added to the swap collection pool.

3. At the end of the swap, you can choose to take home remaining items that have not been taken, or you can leave them to be donated to the YWCA Opportunity Shop.

GUIDELINES

What to bring: dresses, pants, skirts, tops, shoes, bags, scarves, hats, jewellery, and a few friends. This swap has no size restrictions.

What NOT to bring: earrings, swimwear, underwear, night wear, and children’s clothes.

Clothes must be clean and in good condition. If you wouldn’t pass it on to your best friend, please leave it at home. Try-ons cannot be accommodated (unless you have a portable changing room that you can let us borrow)!
