Small business, with a side of beer.

Join Matt Peterson from True North Accounting on Instagram Live as he talks shop with Alberta’s small business community. Each episode, he’ll chat with a small business leader over a local craft beer. Come hang with us, and support our local breweries.

"Companies with a higher purpose are more profitable than those that just think about the bottom line. Being a B-Corp is about addressing both profits and social conditions."

Some of the best things happen over beer. Ideas are born, friendships forged, deals struck. Village Brewery began that way too, with friends sharing beers and dreams for a community brewery. A brewery that would support Calgary’s artists and craftspeople. A brewery that would create the excellent ales and lagers our friends and neighbours deserve.



Follow us on social and never miss a True North event.
