A really great place to grab a beer and a bite to eat. Interesting assortment of beers on tap including some guest taps and a very well curated food menu as well.

I'd say it's the first place in AB to really hit on that sort of PNW brewpub type feel which is awesome; we seem to always either get that huge corporate restaurant vibe or tiny warehouse tasting rooms, this splits the difference very well.

Our server didn't seem super knowledgeable about the beer but I can definitely let that pass... where I do take issue is the terrible job they did of filling my SS growler, about 3 inches of headspace when I cracked it open, left me with a completely undercarbonated and oxidized IPA, a shell of the beer that I really enjoyed two days earlier.

I stopped in during a recent visit to Edmonton. We were early on a Saturday, so they were only serving beer and brunch (which is not necessarily a bad thing.) It was pretty empty despite the Old Strathcona location, so the "vibe" rating is a bit arbitrary. Our server was pleasant, the food was decent, and I enjoyed the seasonal coffee stout they had on top. I grabbed a growler fill, as well - beer rating to follow. The menu was not huge - 3 varieties of waffles, 2 varieties of eggs benny, or a "Brewers Breakfast" - bacon or sausage and eggs for $15 - definitely a steep price for what we received. I will definitely have to make a return visit to get a full appreciation of what they are all about.

Nice small brew pub - good selection of tasty beer on tap. Very welcome addition to the Edmonton beer scene.

I visited on the afternoon of June 6, 2016. Cool location and we got the two couches in the corner. Good music but not too loud. I had a flight of beer. All were quite good...the Page Turner IPA was outstanding. All four of us had the Cuban Sandwich. All four of us loved it.

Great to have a destination brewery in Edmonton. I'll definitely be back.
