This local soda company offers craft sodas that are just as popular as the beers of its sister company, Annex Ale Project. With a variety of soda flavours — including ginger beer, Saskatoon lemonade, craft cola and root beer — already under its belt, Annex launched a limeade soda, made with lime juice and organic cane sugar, this past September. You can get cans of it now in the brewery’s taproom.

Fired Up Hazy Blonde by Banded Peak Brewing

Banded Peak Brewing has brought back its seasonal, Calgary Flames-inspired hazy blonde beer that pays homage to the year the Flames won the Stanley Cup. Try it in the brewery taproom or purchase the beer to enjoy at home through Banded Peak’s website.

This new Inglewood eatery offers an extensive menu of burgers and wraps, as well as signature shakes, waffles and fries. You’re spoiled for choice when it comes to the burgers, which are all halal and feature beef, chicken or “alternative” options like a veggie patty, halloumi cheese or crispy wild-caught cod. You can’t go wrong with the eatery’s namesake Bussin Burger, which features two smashed beef patties, tomato, lettuce, cheese, onion and Bussin sauce on a brioche bun.

Papadzules from Fortuna’s Row

Fortuna’s Row recently launched its first brunch menu, which features plenty of sweet and savoury bites to choose from. Among the South American-inspired plates you can get is the papadzules, with duck confit, fried egg, pipian, braised tomato and xni pec. Pair it with a piece of the “ugly corn bread” and you’re in for a delicious meal.

Bubble Tea from Machi Machi

This bubble tea company, which already has locations in Ontario and British Columbia, recently opened its first Alberta location in Calgary’s Bridgeland neighbourhood. Try flavours like oolong milk tea, jasmine green tea with cream foam or a strawberry latte with panna cotta.
