Adjacent to Beer Revolution and it is highly recommended to visit both, as they each have beers the other does not have. The brewpub had 16 beers when we were there, which I thought was an impressive selection. The Vienna and the pale ales were my faves; vienna had great toasty toffee caramel malt with a clean dry finish. The pale had centennial bitterness and real pale malt. The IPA was more malty than hoppy. Music was hiphop and country, because it’s Calgary. We closed it out (2AM) on Sat night but it was already empty when we arrived, which is too bad.
Stopped in at Brewsters one night after visiting Beer Revolution (owned by the same company) the previous night. These two establishments are connected and you can walk into the other without leaving the building. The wife and I liked Beer Revolution better because of the different beers offered (different brewers) and we also felt like the food was a better value. I will say that the food was good at both places but we were able to share a pizza at BR while most of the other offering at Brewsters were $15 and up but not enough for two people to share.
We sat at the circular bar and got excellent service from the bartender. He was eager to talk craft beer as well as other topics. Either place is worth a look if in town.
Sat at the bar an had a sample tray of 5 beers for $8.75. Ambiance is pleasant -- similar to the Beer Revolution next door. Sixteen of their own beers on tap. One was excellent (DIPA). The others were pretty average.
I came to have lunch before the 2011 Heritage Classic. Sat down, waited 10 minutes for a waitress, despite being one of only 4 tables, then 5 minutes for a menu. The service here was APPALLING! Just beyond horrendous! I could understand if it was busy, and it did get busier later on, but it was quiet and the service was just awful. Had the Espresso Porter (terrible) and the Pale Ale (okay) as those were the most interesting option, as the rest of the lineup were either fruit beers, or under-hopped reds/browns/ambers. Food was outstanding, however, an excellent lunch. Overall, I was disappointed, though I will be back in the hopes that today’s service was not typical.
You know, Brewsters is pretty reasonable. On our list of places for pints, it’s in the top three. The brews aren’t bad - drinkable, okay pints, and full points for having seasonals (even if the servers are kind of clueless about them).
Plus, on a good day, go can steal wifi from the Safeway across the street.
