About Last Best Brewing and Distilling
We’re Last Best Brewing & Distilling, Calgary’s most unique brewpub, and the fourth location in the Bearhill Brewing Family of Breweries.
It’s our privilege to be the community liaison for beer, and beer culture, and we don’t take this role lightly. The beers we make are a direct reflection of the values and personalities of you – our customers and our community. We believe that pubs should be hubs that bring people together; a place where we can grow community, and the culture of beer, in a fun and interactive environment.
Our beers are fresh and delicious because we make them in-house using the best ingredients for everything we produce. Which isn’t hard here in Alberta – we are literally surrounded by a sea of barley, making (in our opinion) Calgary the Last Best opportunity for the craft brewing industry and brewers like us.
In fact, Last Best goes all the way back to the turn of the 20th century when the Canadian government launched a campaign called The Last Best West. Its purpose was to populate the western prairies (Calgary) and grow agriculture in Canada. The Laurier administration believed that this area was the Last Best chance in the modern world for homesteaders to lay roots and shape their futures.
We think the accomplishments resulting from the first Last Best initiative have paved the way for the budding craft beer and distilling industries here in Alberta. We honour this historical spirit through our name and our unwavering commitment to making delicious well-crafted beer.
