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.

We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Our server was very knowledgeable and friendly, the food was great and plentiful. It was the first time we had tried craft beers so the flights were the perfect way to sample them. We will definitely return the next time we are in Calgary.

Had a great night here last Saturday. The service was excellent, the food amazing (some vegan options which are always nice to see!) and the beer flight delicious :)

Food and beer was good. Service was standard but not exceptional. Overall great place.

The burger menu changed a bit and I think the original menu was one of the best in town so I am a little disappointed to see it change.

We loved our time! Food was great and drinks we great too! But there service was top notch! Our server was the sweetest most attentive waitress we've had in a really long time! We didn't love our table as we were sat by the door but other than that it was great, we'll be back for sure! Aside from it being a rainy gloomy night out, we really enjoyed our time!

Really appreciated the COVID prevention practices they have in place! Food was fantastic as was the beer and handcrafted cocktails! Must try the "Legends are made, not born" cocktail and the cast iron nachos.

Great patio feel. But kids having a birthday party isn’t the atmosphere I want at a brew pub.
Also aphids we’re flying all over our table.

This place was amazing. Went here to surprise my boyfriend as he loves beer and hockey... we watched the end of the leafs game and it was crazy the atmosphere that was there. The flight of beer and taster gin were also amazing for the price. Happy hour house wine was 7oz for $7, tasted really mature. The service was really great. Overall 10/10 would go back again in a heartbeat.

One of my favourite spots in Calgary. There beers are my go to in the local craft beer scene. They also host my wedding and did an absolutely outstanding job in the lead up and day of. If you’re looking for a top notch event space the team here has you covered.

We stopped by for lunch. Restaurant was very quiet - I'm assuming partially due to Covid-19 and partially because we arrived right after they opened. Our server was great. Food was fantastic - took home what was left-over. The beer our server recommended was delicious.

Remains one of our favourite weekend happy hour spots in the city- felt like summer was officially on after getting to spend a few hours Sunday on their amazing patio. Great food, amazing service. You get your temp checked as you walk in the door, a quick hand sanitizer and they do a quick COVID screen questionaire -- easy-peasy and great time as always

I have always loved last best. Great beers and environment and the food was amazing. The last time I went though, I had highly suggested it to a friend and said the prices were so worth it because the food was great, the service was great, and the beers were some of my favorites. I was greeted at the door by a guy who was really kind to the man in front of me, but didn’t even say hello to me and cut me off when I said I was early and willing to sit at the bar. My table was awkwardly just shoved up against the bar even though I had made a reservation. The bar tender who was serving us food and drinks was short and rude. I am a server. I know how hard it can be when it’s busy and I don’t expect much, but he was pretty clearly less than pleased about serving us. The nachos, which I insisted we get because they were so worth the money as it’s a lot of food and it’s delicious came out as half as much food as usual, the beet guacamole was essentially tasteless. I’m not sure whose idea that was but guac should be avocados, and avocados only. Beet guac is egregious. There was no sour cream, as there used to be, and the cheese and toppings were minimal and nothing to write home about. Basically... it was our first night out in a while, and it was my favorite place to go and now I’m not sure if I will ever be back. Please bring back the good food and someone please do something to make the servers nice again.

Chilli line wings were fantastic. The burger wasn't the best but my friend enjoyed theirs. I felt the lettuce was soggy and the bun was just meh.
The service was great though.

LB is doing a good job of pandemic service. They have taken out tables so the space is much more open- and is not filled with empty tables. They have added a small table to the end of the larger tables to use as a service table, so staff are not leaning in to guests to deliver or take away plates and glasses. It felt very different from the usual loud and bustling environment, but not in a bad way. With the tables were full and the sound system on, it was good!

Would of loved to have the flights of beer available.

Music a bit too loud, hard to hear servers as they are wearing masks

Overall had a very enjoyable experience
