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.

    Food was great, Keri our server was fantastic. When the band started was when it got very noisy as we were sitting close. We would definitely go again!

    We have been to South Block several times. This time there was two key menu items missing, our server said,"we're out of that". Burnt ends and bacon wrapped corn on the cob. We were disappointed for sure. Also the service was quite slow once our entree's were served, we had to flag down another server to order dessert and more drinks. We've had better experiences previously

    Great for a large group! Good service and great food. Live music did make it harder to chat, but made for a fun night.
