This is the most middle of the road place Iíve 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 donít expect anything special about any aspect of this place.

Stopped in for a pint or two with the girlfriend. Patio is really nice and looks down on the main street, which is a really nice view. Beers are solid, if rather expensive. A decent enough place, I canít really complain, but neither can I overwhelmingly recommend it.

Ate and drank here a couple of times on my trip. Relaxed ambiance, good food, and above average brewpub beer. Id want to see more (if any) seasonal or one-off beers if I were a local, but what they had was fairly good. Definitely worth stopping by if youre in the area.

I love going to Banff and this place is going to become the de-facto stop. They are trying with the beer and I will be back just to see how they are progressing with the different beer they are brewing on-site.

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.

Brew pub has beers a little better than those in neighbouring Canmore. Most of the styles they have are a touch better but itís a little more expensive, being in Banff. Outdoor balcony is great for sipping brew, if a little tight. Nice view overlooking the town and surrounding mountains.

Pretty typical pub atmosphere and food. Service was okay. My beer was nothing special. Selection was fairly typical for a western canadian brewpub. Meh.
