Social Beer Haus is located on Stephen Avenue in downtown Calgary: 218 8 Ave SW, Calgary, AB T2P 1B5. Now that you know where we are located, WHY hangout with us?

First, let’s talk — food and drinks! Are you a lover of southern smoke texas style bbq, as well as craft beer, whiskey and wine? Yes? Awesome! In a nutshell, that’s our food identity.

Secondly, when you hang out with us, our focus is to make you feel more than welcome. Most importantly, we are creating a super fun atmosphere where everyone can socialize and be HAPPY! This is WHY we are working on launching a games room on our upper level within the upcoming months. But for now, you can party on the main floor.

Our server was great, and there is a good beer selection, but the food isn't very good and is very over priced. The happy hour food isn't even a deal, its just smaller portions.

Amazing selection of draught beer! Over 60 selections on tap, with almost all being craft brews from Canada! Amazing smoked food also, great value for your dollar. Would go back for the food and beer alone! The food was delivered quickly to the table, but the service itself was average. Despite average service the food & beer are worth visiting!

Smallest chicken wings I have ever seen. Tasted good though. Took about 15 minutes to get a drink order after sitting down. The owner who helps to serve should maybe try to smile once in awhile.

The place is larger than what it looked like from the outside. Lots of big screen TVs with multiple games playing. (Flames and NFL). We ordered the bigger than Texas platter. The food was amazing with lots of sauces to choose from. Our servers name was Taylor. She was extremely knowledgeable and had quite the sense of humour. She was engaging without being intrusive. I would definitely recommend this venue. A return visit will definitely happen.

Staff was a little aggressive, but it was an okay experience. Just a little green I think.

Great selection of beer. Appetizers over priced ($12 for small plate of fried pickles). Average food and not smokehouse food as advertised. An okay place to have a beer and watch sports on TV

Hi Doug, Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We will definitely take your advice and take a look at the pickles portion. On our menu we offer 6 different kinds of meat offered by the 1/2 pound or by the piece which are smoked in house in our 500lb smoker. All meats on our menu including our wings and any meat found on our sliders, tacos, and salads are all smoked in house and pulled/cut fresh to order. Please let us know next time you are in so we can give you a taste. Cheers.

Service was ok. New system being implemented so it was slow. Took over 10 minutes to get our Bill.

Hi ICEZSSO, Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. Yes we have recently upgraded to a new system as of last week and had some growing pains! I apologize it took as long as it did for you to receive your cheque. Please let us know when you would like to give us another shot! We have all the bugs worked out and would like to give you the proper Social Experience. Cheers!

The service was very slow which is not expected during a mid-week downtown lunch rush. Typically the expecation is much quicker. Food was flavourful, but the value was not there.

Great ambiance and excellent food. High top seats were oddly small, would recommend sitting at the low tables

I love how the venue is so spacious even when it gets crowded at lunch still have a lot of room.
The Hostess is so welcoming and smiles and makes you feel so welcome and I can see why she was
chosen. Nicely done. The servers are very friendly and accommodating and go the extra mile to make you feel comfortable. Love the food nice to have a different selection. I will be back. Yum

Think the day I went they were short staffed and it took 45 min for a beer over an hour for food. Food was great etc just the wait time was really really long. Still go back tho sometime
