Annex Ale Project has a new passionfruit orange guava sour to quench your thirst. The 5.5 per cent beer is a Catharina Sour, which is a boozy, Brazilian fruit-filled version of a Berliner Weisse. Get it at the taproom (you can sip it on the patio) or at select retailers.

Telus Spark has finally re-opened with a new cafe and ice cream shop. Rocket Fuel Cafe serves coffee and nine soft serve ice cream flavours named after the eight planets and Pluto. Try the bright blue Neptune soft serve topped with fluffy clouds of cotton candy to mimic the planet’s winds. Guests can check it out on their next visit to the science centre or pop by just for some ice cream as the cafe is also accessible without buying admission.

If you’re shopping at Granary Road, be sure to stop at Smoke N BBQ for this mouth-watering dill fried chicken sandwich. To make it, chicken thighs are marinated in fresh dill, garlic and dill juice, tossed in buttermilk and a signature Cajun dredge, deep fried and served with house made dill aioli. The sandwich is only available at the Granary Road location, which is open Friday to Sunday. Dill-icious (yes, we said it).

Wild Rose Brewery has collaborated with Calgarian and Winnipeg Jets defenceman Josh Morissey to create a seasonal beer that supports mental health. Sunday Fuzz is a German wheat beer made with real peach and apricot puree. A portion of the proceeds from Sunday Fuzz will be donated to Morrissey’s new mental health organization, Glass Half Full Foundation. Calgary’s Local Laundry has also created limited edition t-shirts that will also raise money for the foundation. Grab a four-pack from the Wild Rose taproom (hurry — they’ve been going fast) or order online for local delivery.
