Beer and BBQ

Again I think I'd love this place more if I liked BBQ more. As it is the craft beers are always good to try and the food is nice. The others I go with are bigger BBQ fans and love it more. The only takeaway I found was the live entertainment that happened to be there last time. It isn't... read more

Food was average for this sort of place, but you get the usual frozen then quick fried fries, etc. Cole slaw was so-so, BBQ beans also so-so. Brew Pub did offer a good selection of ales and IPAs -- all we tried were yummy. Recommended by local B&Bs, but choices in Castlegar are extremely limited.

BBQ sanpler was subpar and dry like the fries. The staff was pretty and nice. Nice location on the outskirts of castlegar. Neat old building. I may return if I have the time.

I hesitated with what to rate this. The service was worse then poor. Four of us were seated with only three menus and did not receive a fourth. We waited a very long time for beverages. Once we had been served our food- with three napkins and three forks for five people (a friend joined) we were not checked on... More

This is a nice place to try lots of different local beers and good food. The smoked foods are excellent. A cross between a sports bar, a pub, and a brasserie. Bring an appetite.

Hi Christine thank you for the review of our craft beer taphouse. I am sorry that you found our food to be a 3 out of 5. I hope you come try something off the BBQ menu as that has not won you over, perhaps one of our homemade burgers, some of our fusion tacos or the famous mussels? Many... More

Had an amazing meal and tried a few different pints. Troy and Carly deserve all the praise they get at this pub. It is something that has been earned and not handed to them. You guys rock. Your waitress are very also easy to talk with and are very friendly. Looking forward to many more enjoyable meals.

Great selection of craft beers. The rib appetizer is a small meal well worth trying. Service was as good as can be.
