We are a casual beer hall with a passion for fresh local food and awesome local beer. We opened our doors in Calgary’s Kensington neighbourhood in January of 2020.

We feature 24 rotating beer taps and a menu that focuses on North American Cuisine​ — think a sophisticated twist on traditional Canadian comfort foods. We always pride ourselves on making all of our dishes in house from scratch, using the best local producers and farmers as much as possible.

Our mission is “Eat - Drink - Be Local! We aim to connect our community with local craft beer & breweries through fun experiences and fresh food.” We believe that every person that joins our team and every guest that walks through the doors becomes part of our family as we grow and evolve.

It’s actually better than I thought. Small food portions though. Definitely returning to try their pizzas n flatbreads.

Not excited by the new menu. Not enough quick snacks and the charcuterie was disappointing.

Ordered chicken and it came breaded with really spicy sauce on it. No where in the description does it say is is breaded or that this spicy sauce would be on it. My friend had the shrimp and she felt is was missing something and not a lot of food for the price.
Love the patio!

Had a great time on the patio as the weather cleared. Our server was super busy as the place was busy as well and given the earlier weather then had no idea that the patio would open. Fairly pricey for the food but everything was great.

The food was very good! Beautiful place and ambience. Food was surprisingly amazing. The charcuterie board was actually one of my favourites in city!!!

But - Coffee needs improvement though, maybe a new brand. Very acidic and bitter.

Can’t wait to go back for more!

Went later on in the day and a lot of items were sold out, food and beer wise. Took a bit to find something we wanted to enjoy but that they also had on the menu.

Thank you for coming in to try us out on our first week back, we weren't quite expecting the amazing response from everyone and will up our orders this week so that we are ready for everyone so that we won't run out of dishes/beer.
