Dandy Brewing Company

Dandy not only produces some of Calgary’s most delicious and interesting beers, but its taproom also has excellent food. Chef Merritt Gordon’s menu of hot dogs, rollmops and other delights is enough to bring non-beer drinkers through the door.

2003 11 St. S.E., 587-956-8836,


Trolley 5

With huge garage doors on two floors that open up almost the full wall, Trolley 5 has one of the best indoor/outdoor spaces in town. And it’s also got one of the most extensive selections of brewery food. Pop in for a cold one and a burger or something from the house-smoked barbecue menu.

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


Wild Rose Brewery Taproom

In 2014, Wild Rose moved the majority of its brewing to Foothills Industrial Park. However, its taproom, restaurant and some brewing remain at Currie Barracks. There are few better places for a pint and some pub food.

4580 Quesnay Wood Dr. S.W., 403-727-5451,
