Barbecue
South Block is a North-Carolina inspired BBQ hall and brewery on the edge of Mission, in Calgary. Upstairs you’ll find a large dining room, 20-seat bar, and a year-round indoor/outdoor beer garden. Downstairs hosts our stage, live music hall, and brewerey – where we brew our entire draft lineup from classic staples like our Pilsner, Lager, and IPAs, to our unique seasonal Peach Bourbon Ale and Mango Wheat Ale.

Behind the bar, we run a hand-crafted cocktail program and offer a whiskey list of over 200 varietals, including American, Canadian, Irish, Scottish, and Japanese whiskeys.

However, the biggest draw has to be our slow-smoked barbecue menu. Inspired by the flavours of North Carolina, our team arrives early every morning to smoke our famous brisket, pulled pork, ribs, and more for up to 14 hours.

    We love the whiskey menu here. And you can try some fun new drams during happy hour for half price. The ambience is nice and the menu has some southern BBQ items that we usually enjoy. Unfortunately the server last night was inattentive and disinterested to the point of being rude. It put a bit of a downer on the experience. That is not our usual experience here. And my brisket was also a bit dry last night. So we will have to hope better next visit.

    Great time. We had a reservation for 14 and they were all set up when we got there. Our server did a great job keeping all the bills straight. Beer was fantastic and the food was great!!

    Didn’t feel like anyone was our server. Food was served and that was last we seen of the waitress un till 10 minutes after we finished the wonderful meal we had. We probably would have eat more at the time but to go home.

    Food was amazing. The brisket was divine and so tender you didn't need a knife.
