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.

I've been to Last Best many times during Happy Hour and it is a favourite. I was there for supper last night and had the Last Best For You Bowl with shrimp. It was so delicious. The chickpeas and kale were roasted perfectly. The combination of textures and flavours complemented each other so well. You won't be disappointed with this meal. The ambience was lovely too, with lights strung around the bar, a Christmas tree, and a jovial atmosphere. As always, the beer was cold and tasty. My friend and I had a lovely evening. I would highly recommend Last Best!

Had a lovely time! Increase in lighting might be beneficial, we struggled reading the menu and see our companies faces.

Appetizers took over an hour (including some mixed nuts that, let’s be honest, were made hours earlier), and over 1.5hrs for our mains. While I suspect that the kitchen just couldn’t handle the number of people (it was packed for the first Flames game), and the staff was certainly apologetic, it was way too long. When a kitchen is slow the servers need to be extra good to make up for it, and we often were waiting around with empty glasses which, compounded the problem.

I went on a friday around 6pm. The food was soooo good. We had the nachos, some cheesy dip, and a pizza. All were AMAZING. My friends (one of which is a picky eater) had to drive back to Edmonton the following day and they went and grabbed another pizza each for their drive home. I cant stop thinking about the food. I might order some to go for lunch today.

Last Best's food is not what you would expect from a brewery. Not only one of our go to's for some great beet, but also for fantastic food. Definitely a cut above. From their butter burger (as juicy as it sounds) to their appetizers (amazing wings), we are never disappointed. Also check out their Happy Hour!

The nachos were so good that we had to order a second time. And we added the braised beef to the second order (sorry to our vegetarian friend). As always, beer was great too.

Went on a Wednesday (Sept 1st), busy place, great good, and our server was the sweetest most outstanding yet (didn't catch her name, but reminded me of the character Alex Dunphy from "Modern Family"). She was great with my parents who are hard of hearing, and just awesome all around. The stinky cheese pizza and the steak dinner were fantastic, Great IPAs!! We had a great time, and will go back on our next visit to Calgary :)
