Fun
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.

First time at Dandy and it was perfect. Service was excellent, food was delicious (and refreshingly different in a sea of similar restaurant offerings) and excellent beer. Looking forward to returning soon!

Great date night! Provincial Restrictions in place so we had to sit outside (in light snowfall) next to a regularly stocked fire pit (lovely smelling cedar wood). We were dressed warm and the fire pit was perfect. The service, food and drinks were amazing (as always). Try the delicious patty melt! You won’t be disappointed. It was such a nice night!

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!
