Banff’s first and only brew pub makes seven well-regarded traditional and innovative beers. Their on-site lager and ale tanks are open-to-view and tours are available on request. Inspiration is also reflected in the menu that features pub favourites with flavourful culinary enhancements.


Patrons can choose a comfy booth with leather seats, a high seat at the teak bar or small table, or a soft leather couch in the Brewer’s Lounge. There is a pool table and big screen sports TVs, and the west-facing windows and balcony that overlook Banff Avenue are great for people watching and mountain gazing.
