“Good atmosphere and great beer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013 via mobile

We never ate here so can't comment on the food. We enjoyed having a drink as they sell their own beers which are very good. The place is generally busy which added to the atmosphere.

“Microbrewery in downtown Banff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

Banff Avenue Brewhouse is a comfortable sports bar with wall-to-wall ice-hockey and occasionally basketball or British soccer. It brews on the premises and you can sample the ales for the price of a pint. On Monday nights you can meet the brewer and have a guided tour of the process ..... and beer is $4 a pint. Other offers on other evenings. The IPA is especially good for those who like hoppy beers and the pulled pork sandwiches are outstanding though the bison burgers are a little dry. Sandwiches and burgers come with a choice of substantial 'sides' including soup and Caesar salad.

“Great micro brewery excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

We love this place, we always go a few times when we visit Banff. A great spot for lunch, après, drinks & dinner, staff are always friendly, helpful & knowledgeable about their beers & food selections.
It's usually pretty busy, but there's always space to be found.

The in-house brews are good clean & well looked after.
The food is always good, big portion sizes, good range of choice.
It takes me ages to decide as I want everything on the menu.

Nice relaxed bar, in summer there's a patio too.
Highly recommend this bar, just save me a seat!
