“Impressive beer selection, food was average.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2013

Went here Saturday evening with my brother, place was packed. The beer selection is huge, with many options on tap. Ended up trying a couple of different French beers on advice from the bartender - favourite was a 1664 Blanc. Definitely not something I would have picked up on my own at the liquor store and it was excellent! The steak was average - nothing great. The menu was diverse, something for everyone. Atmosphere is nice, but nothing to get all excited about...definitely a great place to go for a bit to eat, drinks and hanging out with friends though.

“Great beer, Less than average food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2013 via mobile

Went to MKT on a Friday night with a friend. The beer selection was spectacular! I used to live in Belgium and I like to try different beers and this place does not disappoint! The atmosphere was good, if a bit noisy, bit it was definitely a happening place. The downfall is their food. The beef carpaccio appy was way too salty, and I like my salt! My burger was burnt and my friend's macaroni was just average. Way too expensive for such run of the mill food. Would go back again for the beer but not the food.

“Great bar in historic train station off Whyte Ave !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2013

Went to visit my son in Edmonton and he took me for beers and snacks in the nicely renovated old train station just off Whyte Avenue (I think I arrived from Calgary to this train station in the early 80 s). The historic building is nicely restored and the inside is trendy with great friendly service and nice selection of local beers. Food menu is nice although we had snacks the prices are reasonable. Well done !

“A good choice.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2013

Have been a couple times, last weekend being most recent.

Good selection of appies and main dishes, and have always enjoyed what weve tried. Cold beers on a nice patio dont hurt either.

Would easily recommend.

“Beer market love the concept”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2013 via mobile

Love the concept of a beer market. The beer menu is bigger than the food menu. So selection is huge. Plus they offer a flight of beer as a taster if you can't make up your mind. Food is as good as the beer my new favorite place
