Big Rock Brewery, Calgary

(4.7/5 based on 190+ reviews on the web)
Immerse yourself in the production of Harvest Ale from grain to glass at Big Rock Brewery. In 1984, founder Ed McNally at age 60 endeavored to create something different, an option for beer lovers looking for a deliberately different brew. Ed struck gold with a beer he coined "Traditional," but the brewery has gone on to brew much more. The signature series now has 13 different beers alone, along with drafts. Join the knowledgeable guides for a tour of the brewery and a sample of their strikingly different beers. For travelers who use our world travel planner, Calgary holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Big Rock Brewery and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • This month we went to a work party at Big Rock and had a great time. Clean and well laid out. Bar well stocked and amazing staff. Food was great! 
  • The food is great here and they "MAKE BEER" right on the premises. Make a reservation during the week or you may not get in. Patio can be very nice on a summer day.

  • Good food and of course the beer! Went on a staff function after work which started with a tour of the brewery, very interesting, then BBQ buffet. Excellent for the price.
  • Really good food, decent prices and excellent for meeting with clients over lunch as they are pretty fast on the service side.
  • Great beers, great people! Also 2 pokestops and a gym!
  • Way out of the way but worth a visit. Good food and judge selection of beers to sample. Tours available. Amazing facility for one of Alberta's to breweries.
  • Went for a casual date lunch today for the second time ever at the grill, it was fantastic! The beer of course was great, but both our dishes were very delicious, and the service was wonderful!
