Gastro Pub
About the restaurant
We’re Banff’s living room. We share Banff’s real mountain lifestyle – active living by day, living actively by night. Banff Ave Brewing is a place where locals come to share the stories of their mountain experience and plan the next one, and where out-of-town visitors come to feel comfortable and soak in the real Banff. We're stoked to offer three different spaces, two of which you can reserve tables for:

The Pub
Get comfy and hunker down for après-whatever in Banff’s almost-secret hideaway. Enjoy great craft brews and all your pub favourites in a casual venue that’ll make you feel like a local, no matter where you’re from.

The Lodge
Climb on up to our newest casual dining spot with an easy-going approach. Anchor in for Banff’s legit take on Detroit-style deep-dish pizza (if you know, you know), along with pasta and small plates – perfect for sharing with the crew.

Sports Bar
About the restaurant
Our one-of-a-kind Canadian themed sports bar & grill has an extensive menu of appetizers, entrees, drinks and amazing specials every night of the week. You’ll note our Canadian decor starts right when you walk up to our huge Inukshuk at our doors and continues throughout the restaurant in a “cheeky” Canadian fashion. We promise, when you come to The Canadian Brewhouse, you’ll instantly feel at home, because our house is your house…only we have way more TVs! You won’t find a better selection of screens anywhere for the sports you love! We even provide tabletop speakers for those nights when multiple sports and teams are playing.
