Have to say I was quite disappointed considering all the positive reviews. The place was busy on a warm Sunday afternoon and it appeared there were more drinkers than eaters - that should have been a clue. The service at our table of five was abrupt and no so courteous. Yes, they took our order quickly but our drinks and... More

Decided to go to The Rose for a pint and some lunch last Saturday. It was cold and snowy out and there is a lot of construction going on in the vicinity so I assumed it would be quiet ... Wrong! At 1pm it was 3/4 full and when I left at 2:30pm it was full and there was a... More

It is an awesome tucked away locals place, serving only their beers, the mix of Velvet Fog with Wraspberry Ale delicious. After a week of vacation bar food the Kale Caesar with grilled chicken hit the spot! Friendly service too

This brewery is tucked away in the Currie Barracks and had seating both inside and out. It's a really nice place on a hot summer day! Awesome brews like their Cowbell and Wraspberry ale are a must. All their food is amazing and there is nothing fried which we appreciate. Their baked pretzels, pho bowl, tacos and ploughman's platters are... More

We came here on a Friday evening hoping it wasn't too busy. There were a lot of people there but we had no problem finding a spot to sit. I tried a blonde lager which was delicious. I didn't realize they did taster flights until I had already ordered. Definitely trying that next time. The soft baked pretzels were delicious,... More

I live close by so WR is almost like a neighbourhood bar. I always recommend it to friends and family visiting and no one has been disappointed! the venue is unique just like the beer! It's not your average rating beers! Very casual and extra cool during the summer when the patio is open! If you can't stay I recommend... More

Our party of nine had an awesome time at Wild Rose Brewery recently. Food was amazing, we all loved what we ordered. They serve great beer, they have samplers with nice variety to try. The staff are out of this world friendly, and seem to really enjoy working there. I will definitely return on my next trip to Calgary!

We love this place They serve great beer- the Alberta Crude is an outstanding stout but love the samplers you can try Great variety of food. Never had a bad meal here Can be a bit drafty and cold in winter- but it isn't a brick built and well insulated building - part of its character I suppose I'd recommend... More

We had a work lunch here during a busy Christmas Friday. It's a fairly small area to fit all the tables into but everyone was happy and the service was ok. The food was good - nothing amazing, but did the job nicely! Very limited selection of wine (only had Chardonnay if you wanted a white wine), I guess as... More

We have found ourselves coming in here quite frequently. The food is excellent and there is always something new to try on tap. Our kids really enjoy it as well and are allowed select hours.

Our Taproom is housed in AF 23, part of Currie barracks, Calgary’s military base established in 1934. We suspect the building was used for top-secret experiments to determine the effects of beer and delicious food on soldiers.

Voted Calgary’s favourite brew pub 7 years running, this is where the magic is crafted. Come on down and sip the golden nectar next to the copper kettles it was brewed in.
