A two level brewpub with a friendly local feel. Pool tables upstairs. Brewing equipment in the rear. Good size patio out front. Seemed to draw a decent crowd of locals at lunchtime. Staff was friendly, semi knowedgable, able to talk about the beers in simplistic terms. There were about 10 taps on this time. Food was decent, pub grub. Good sized portions and good ingredients. The beers range from simplistic lagers to decent stouts. Nothing too experimental on tap, beers are mainly session styles - pale ales, cream ales, brown ale, pilsner etc. Their seasonal beers are a bit better than their normal offereings. Moose Knuckle Stout and The Jacolantern were both decent seasonals. The beers are seved in oversized shakers. You can get a taster tray featuring a small 3oz (or so) sample of each beer on tap. Best to start with that and then order a full pint of the ones you like. Gift shop is across the lane with some nice Grizzly Paw Pilsner glasses, mugs, golf and tshirts. They also have a beer hot sauce and bbq sauce. Thereís also some craft sodas for sale. The gift shop carries the Powderhound, Rutting Elk and the Honey Wheat. Unfotunately there were no bottled seasonals. Worth a visit, just donít go in expecting big experimental brews.
on holiday in Canada whe whent dhare to eat when we were in canmore nice cool place it was very busy but the beers were reasonable and there were tasters so ok the food and service was good itís definitely a place to stop by if youíre in the town
This review is for the production brewery on 8 street, which has a small tasting room featuring 4 beers on tap, with free! tastings. The server was very pleasant and well-trained, gving a presumably scripted description of the beers. She did seem to know the types of hops in the pale ale. Kudos for that. The beers were pretty decent. The facility is beautiful. Clothing and botled beers for sale too.

Review for the off-sale across from the brewpub. Courteous staff member but not terribly knowledgeable nor wanting to chat. There were two sours left (stout and brown) and five of their regular lineup. Canmore seems to be somewhat of a touristy town and the off-sale caters to this with t-shirts, glasses and knick-knacks. I stepped into the brewpub - nice patio, beautiful scenery and friendly hostess.
Love the place. Beers aren't mind blowing but are solid and consistent. Seasonal a can be great. The outdoor fireplace with stumps around the campfire is a most appreciated touch. Finally have growlers!!
Cool little brewpub with a great patio overlooking the mountains. Beer quality was very poor, with many nearly undrinkable ones. Prices are steep ($7-7.50 for a pint, but the taster tray is okay: $1.50 per 3 oz. pour). Service was friendly enough. Didnít have any food, but it was priced steep. Another fun stop en route to Calgary with bad beer.
The Grizzly Paw has always been a great place to stop if you;re in the rocky mountains. The food is good, the beer is good and the price is good too. Not to mention their very own produced pop is awesome as well! Never had bad service here and now with the new brewery open it seems these guys are adding to their ever growing rotating big bottles and rotational taps at the pub. Great place to stop if passing by!
Ate and drank here a couple of times on my recent trip. The food and the beer were both average at best, although the food portions were huge. Friendly vibe about the place, but seemed a bit run down. Perhaps this will change with the new brewery being built nearby.
