I love this Brewery....not just because the beer is outstanding, but, because the food is incredibly delicious! Be sure to get there early for lunch, because this place will pack them in! Chef Harry is very talented and passionate about the food. He strives for freshness and high quality in the food. Highly recommend this great restaurant!

Not a beer lover but popped inq here for my cousin's 21st birthday treat.

The area is compact but is not shy on action, class and hidden gems.

Our guide, Nick, was absolutely spot on with everything and we were intrigued by both the tour and the tasters to round of our day. The 2 hours flew in!

I'd recommend to all.... even those who don't like beer!

Great place. Fantastic beer. Dan is the man. Very knowledgeable and kept it interesting.
Big rock has been a beer mainstay in Alberta since 1985 and they keep getting better and better.

Stopped in to find the grill that is associated with them is open for lunch only
Monday -Friday. They don’t have license for a tap room so on Saturday you can buy beer to go only. The lady working did give us a taste of several beers to choose what to get. You do get samples on the tour, but again no tours on Daturday.
