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.

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!

Great job on the re-opening and social distancing scenario set up.

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

It took about 50 minutes from the time we first arrived to first appetizer delivery. I suspect that it may have been held back as our party had late arrivals. The meals were much quicker and were very good. All the staff is super friendly.

I had the porcini pasta with braised pork on top, and thought it was excellent pub fare. Beers were tasty as well, and service & ambiance were great. A little noisy....didn't bother me but a heads of if you're looking for quiet.

I would recommend it but definitely not over lunch. We had a large group booked in advance but they were understaffed. Meal took 50 minutes to deliver.

Everything was amazing and very accommodating, only issue was I had asked for a table with a wall to hang up a banner and once we got there, the table assigned to us was in the middle with no where to hang said banner but all in all super fun and might be in touch to host a similar event in the new year

Not many for vegetarians but the meat-eaters were happy. Great atmosphere, if you're looking for the noisy/bustling pub atmosphere, the interior design is great.

We were a group of ladies out for a nice night!
The food was really good! Im not certain what all the ladies ordered, but I had the mussels and salmon! Both were fantastic. It was very busy, but for how busy the restaurant was I feel that we got pretty good service.

Food and beer were great. I can’t wait to go back and have the mussels again, they’re a must. Had a very enjoyable time. My only negative comment would be our server seemed disinterested and not very friendly.

It was a cool place to be for a casual night with your friends. The service isn’t bad, but the periods between the times our server was at our table were longer than usual so it took time to order new drinks or food, but once our order was taken we got our items quickly. We weren’t ignored by any means, just the times between the check-ins could have been a little shorter. The food was delicious and so were the drinks. The atmosphere is great and really chill, but the chairs we were sitting on were uncomfortable. (The tall metal ones, so if you can avoid them try to. If they can change those out for different ones that would be great). But overall we really enjoyed it and would return as the issues were really minor to us.

Can’t say enough great things about our waitress. A big table, she was attentive and we never waited for anything. Hope management sees this and gives her the praise she deserves :)
