A nice relaxed environment. Located on the 2nd floor on Banff ave, accessible through the mini mall. Decor is a nice mix of rustic wood and clean black modernism. Brewpub is visible through a large window at the back of the place. Very clean. Nice ambiance. Interesting musical playlist featuring a lot of good indie rock. Staff is friendly, they know quite a bit about the product they are serving. 9 taps on when I visited, 7 regualr taps, plus two taps reserved for seasonals, both of which were fruit-wheat beers. Styles offered are failrly mainstream, nothing too out there and abv remains low on all brews. decent drinkable selections are offered, nothing too surprising, well made and without flaws. Styles included stout, pils, cream ale, IPA, schwarzbier and a few others. Some selections are on nitro. Sampler trays available, 6 x 4oz glasses. Beer is also available in 12oz, 18oz and 32oz glasses. Growler fills are availble (64oz) and they are now bottling and selling bombers, not sure what beers are available bottled, check with the staff. Glassware and tshirts are available. If you like beer, this is the place you will end up at in Banff.

Centrally located pub with a half dozen or so own-brewed beers and one guest tap. The guest tap was for a nano brewer in Calgary (Dandy) when I visited. Beers are decent as is the atomosphere. No flights but the bartender was very generous in offering free tastes. An enjoyable place to spend a few hours while in Banff.

A pretty good brewpub with some good gems on tap. Not all, but many, and the quality is pretty good overall. Knowledgeable staff, lots of hockey on the televisions. Seems to rotate out a lot of different styles, would be good to go back on a regular basis if you’re in the neighbourhood often.

I only came here for the beer! So I cannot rate the food. But is good to see a brewery downtown Banff with good in house beers

Great food and some excellent local brews. Good service and the hockey game on can’t beat it.

The inside was dreadfully dark, but thankfully we were there on a warm summer evening and could sit outside. The balcony is skinny and long, almost like a juliet balcony but you can actually sit there and look out onto the street and pretty mountains in the background. Lots of locals here in the evening. Beer selection (8 diff beers) not too exciting but good enough. Of course you will come here if you are in Banff...

Nice little brewpub on the Main Street in Banff, with a small deck overlooking the street and mountains. Beer quality was crap to average, with one good one (the pilsner). Kind of expensive for the flight ($14 for 6 x 6 oz. pours). Service was friendly enough. Overall, a fun stop for a few obscure ticks of mostly weak quality beer.

Nice local brewery to get craft beer if you’re in Banff. Food menu is great and the service is awesome! They have a good selection of beers albeit it a bit on the less adventerous side for craft beer drinkers however they are still decent beers. Always willing to give brewery tours too!

A cozy atmosphere with the regular pub food and offerings. Bit pricey but cheap for a touristy area. What shines is thier beer. Although nothing special, for an Albertan brewery it produces solid beers, especially thier IPA. Go if you are in the area or need a reason to stop on the highway.

This is the most middle of the road place I’ve ever been to. Average beers, average food, average service. Simply no good points and perhaps the only bad point (?) was they dressed up a brass status of a native Canadian in Christmas lights, which screamed tackiness. Clearly if you are in Banff, go here to get some ticks and maybe eat food and you will be happy, but don’t expect anything special about any aspect of this place.
