5 Things We’re Excited to Eat and Drink This December

Holiday milkshakes, gingerbread croissants and a fruit-forward sour beer are some of the local eats on our list this month.

Gingerbread Croissant from Black Sheep

Black Sheep bakery is known for its croissants, and for the holidays, it’s offering a gingerbread flavour made with a spiced croissant dough and stuffed with orange marmalade. If that doesn’t sound tempting enough, it’s also covered in a Cointreau glaze and topped with gold leaf for a special holiday touch.

Fraction of the Sum Apricot Sour from Establishment Brewing Company

This new beer from the award-winning Establishment Brewing Company is a fruit-forward sour that is fermented and aged in oak barrels, then further fermented a second time along with fresh B.C. apricots. The apricot freshness in this beer is perfect for a cold winter evening to remind you of warmer days past. Available at the Establishment Brewing taproom and select liquor stores around the city.

Sunday Pie is a new pizza pop-up in Calgary that operates out of the back of The Wednesday Room and, as the name suggests, is only open on Sundays.
