The Dandy Brewing Company is Calgary's original little brewery. Although it has grown some, it will always be small at heart. We produce inspired ales, with lots of care..

Our unique approach to brewing and keen eye to detail fosters creativity in both our recipes and beer styles.

On site, we are pleased to offer a unique brewery experience featuring a full service tasting room restaurant with an exquisite menu of fine dining drinking food, a curated selection of cocktails, glass pours of selected wines, and 20 taps of Dandy beers.

We share a passion for not only brewing, but the people, process, and experiences that make the experience so special.

The beer and food at Dandy are incredible. The staff are friendly and attentive. And how can you beat fire pits on a patio?

Went on a Weds evening, got a corner high table. Server was very attentive and super helpful, even for our questions on a craft brewers' guide. Great beer. Loved the Imperial Stout - they only make it for the winter, so get it while you can! Well-spaced out tables, very high ceilings which make for good ventilation. Looking forward to trying the outdoor fire pits next! (It was too cold so it was shut when we went.) Tip: look up their menu befoer you go so you know what you'd like to order.

The outdoor fire pits are a lovely place to spend an evening out! Staff at Dandy are always a joy and happily tended to our fire throughout the evening. The Patty Melt was as delicious as it looked on Instagram. Always enjoy the beer line up. Definitely our favourite brewery in Inglewood!

This is a fantastic brewery/restaurant. Both the beers and the food is on point. The food is similar in quality and taste to the high end restaurants in Calgary (and the world!). Do not underestimate the small kitchen, the chef is a genius.

I booked a fire pit outside at Dandy. The ambiance & service were amazing. The team at Dandy were all super friendly and knowledgeable. They kept our fire going and took great care of us. They followed strict COVID guidelines and I felt really safe. They had a great selection of beers and other drinks and were able to make great recommendations. The popcorn was amazing (as was the beer)! We loved the atmosphere and plan on going back lots.

I love supporting local businesses! And the Dandy Brewing Company is well worth supporting! Awesome service, the food is absolutely delicious and fantastic value for money, and their homemade tonic was out of this world! And not only that, they have set up fire pits outside for you to stay toasty and warm!

Had a great evening! Food is different & unexpected for a brewery, but delicious. Next time I really need to convince someone to share the octopus with me. Hot chicken sandwich, spatzle, carbonera, & chicken skins were the highlights for us. Our large group remarked multiple times that the service was incredibly attentive. Thank you!

A week ago I went for brunch. It was delicious and server was friendly and attentive. He suggested we come New Years Eve and the dinner would be $65 for a menu specially prepared by the chef. Alas, it was not. There were three items: oysters, pasta, or rib eye. The meat was chewy and disappointing. I thought it was a sirloin. The restaurant did take 30 percent off our steaks however. Left a “mmech” feeling for us and we declined on dessert or anything else.

Beer was great, food was good as well. I would recommend adding a few baked baby potatoes or something like that to the steak. Something a bit more significant than just salad. I had the open faced chicken sandwich which I did like, but it could have maybe used a small dinner bun. We came hungry.
This place is right up my alley, I'll be back for sure!
