We’re Last Best Brewing & Distilling, Calgary’s most unique brewpub, and the fourth location in the Bearhill Brewing Family of Breweries.It’s our privilege to be the community liaison for beer, and beer culture, and we don’t take this role lightly. The beers we make are a direct reflection of the values and personalities of you – our customers and our community. We believe that pubs should be hubs that bring people together; a place where we can grow community, and the culture of beer, in a fun and interactive environment.

Our beers are fresh and delicious because we make them in-house using the best ingredients for everything we produce. Which isn’t hard here in Alberta – we are literally surrounded by a sea of barley, making (in our opinion) Calgary the Last Best opportunity for the craft brewing industry and brewers like us.

    The food wasn’t very good. I was especially disappointed in the serving size of the nachos for how expensive they were. Burger was ok, but was overcooked. Fries were overcooked. The Korean bbq wings were good. But again not worth the $. The beer is always good. The last couple times I’ve gone the food hasn’t been great. The beer is always good though.

    Fabulous! Welcoming and attentive staff. Great selection of artisan beers and spirits. Quality of the food was excellent and cooked to order. The vegetables in my quinoa bowl were al dente. Portions are generous. We are only in Calgary one night otherwise we would definitely be going back. Great vibe and ‘industrial’ brewery decor makes for a memorable experience.

    Booked Father's Day Brunch which showed a wide variety of menu items available on their website. When we arrived they said that only a buffet was being offered (with limited items) and it was $35/per person (no mention of this on the website or when I called to confirm our reservation). The waitress was really sweet, as she tried to accommodate my son who was vegetarian, but ultimately we weren't keen on a 'buffet style' breakfast, the atmosphere was very 'dark', and there wasn't a lot on the buffet for the price, so we were left wandering on Father's Day trying to find a backup plan. I have been to Last Best in the evenings and it's been great, but I wouldn't recommend it for these types of functions!

    Pretty good experience. Took us a while to get served initially on a Saturday early evening during a long weekend but afterwards the service was good . Asked for a random flight that didn’t include two beers we had tried and it did - missed out on trying a beer or two altogether. Food was delish - tried the Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, and the spicy and sweet pizza. Would recommend this place.

    Went to last best for the first time yesterday. The food was great. It was better than what you generally expect from brewery/pub food. The service was pretty good, it was busy but our server was still fairly attentive. The thing that was slightly negative for us was just that the music is so loud it’s hard to hear the people at your table. It was great music and it created good energy, but having to constantly repeat yourself is a bit annoying for dinner. You expect that at a club, but not so much at dinner.

    Absolutely love the avocado dukkah bowl…..best lunch I’ve had in years! Delicious flavours, textures and huge portion. Definitely coming back! Only suggestion I have would be to turn the music down a bit - hard to visit at that volume

    Went for lunch, one persons chicken burger had a bun rock hard and the chicken was all dried out. Other beef burger was ok, not one of the best but ok. Waitress didn’t come after bringing food to see if everything was ok so we weren’t able to tell her until we were ready to leave. They did remove the chicken burger off the bill but just disappointing my friends meal was inedible. Hopefully just a one off.

    I usually don’t write reviews but thought I’d mention something for us brewery lovers. The ambiance is nice, decent noise level during peak times and it’s a good atmosphere overall. The food was fresh, however I noticed staff eating food where food was served from kitchen, not washing their hands after and then proceeding to serve plates to guests - not best practice here on hygiene. The beer on tap is sub par and we had better drinks come from cans than tap…this is quite unusual for a brewery. Tap brews came out with no foam cap and tasted a bit more fermented, not a fan of this. Overall: 4/10 Wouldn’t really come here again unless it was my only option really
