*Listed in alphabetical order.

  • Last Best

    Even elevated pub fare like the Albeerta burger with bacon jam and bone-marrow aioli can’t distract from the main act — Last Best’s slate of craft-brewed beauties, including showstoppers like the Dirty Bird Black Lager and Show Pony Ale.

    607 11 Ave. S.W., 587-353-7387,


  • Trolley 5

    Trolley 5’s southern-inspired fare, like its barbecue-beef-brisket sandwich, shares the menu with more eclectic offerings like dim sum dumplings. These flavours are as varied as the beers on offer, including the citrusy First Crush white IPA and Derailed Pale Ale’s toasted malts.

    728 17 Ave. S.W., 403-454-3731,


  • Wild Rose Brewery

    The Wild Rose taproom menu plays with traditional pub food, putting Montreal smoked meat on pizza and converting spaghetti squash into carbonara. All menu items come with suggested pairings — the perfect excuse for a pint of Electric Avenue or Velvet Fog. 

    4580 Quesnay Wood Dr. S.W., 403-720-2733,
