In certain cases, ZYN is unable to guarantee vintages due to the Alberta Government distribution system. ZYN will do its best to ensure that the vintages on its website are updated and accurate. If ZYN cannot fulfill your order with the requested vintage, you will be contacted and you may choose to either accept the available vintage or cancel the product.
ZYN will accept returns. If the item(s) is in saleable condition, it will be fully refunded. If the item has been shipped outside Calgary, the shipping charges are the responsibility of the purchaser. Faulty items will be evaluated on an individual basis before a decision is made.
ZYN delivers within the City of Calgary for a flat fee. For deliveries outside Calgary, additional charges will apply at the point of checkout.

All orders are shipped via courier and require complete mailing address and telephone number for daytime delivery. Orders cannot be shipped to a post office box.

The Beverage Container Recycling Program was implemented in Alberta on December 1, 1997. ZYN must charge a bottle deposit fee on all recyclable bottles and cans sold through our website. The bottle deposit fees are as follows:
Up to 1 litre: 10¢ / Over 1 litre: 25¢
Orders can be cancelled via email within 2 hours of the order being placed without charge. A restocking fee may apply if the order is cancelled after 2 hours of it being placed.
In the early 1900s, Medicine Hat was booming with mills and factories springing up in the city’s industrial districts. The original Medicine Hat Brewery benefited from the boom, as did the clay industry, which saw its first brickyard appear in 1886 and companies such as I-XL thrive in the city for over a hundred years. Brick & Mortar Porter is named after the clay trade that helped put Medicine Hat on the map.
This porter is a slightly smoother, sweeter version of a robust porter. Too dark in colour and high in alcohol to be considered an English porter, the Brick & Mortar Porter might be considered middle ground between an English style and robust porter. Chocolate and coffee notes are supported by caramel malts, giving it a lightly sweet finish. The perfect end to a hard day’s work.
