The Prairie Dog Brewing is a fully-operational microbrewery and family-friendly restaurant located in South Calgary at 105D 58 Avenue SE. We were founded in early 2016 by five friends/family members, all of whom are owner/operators and present at the pub on a day-to-day basis. We opened to the public in June of 2018.
Our food is focused on comfort food and Texas-style barbecue, which we smoke on-location in our big red barbecue pit, Clifford. Our beer is all small batch and rotates frequently (we reprint menus every two weeks). We have several mainstays and some repeating seasonals, and we are very involved in barrel-aging beers and using different strains of yeast and bacteria to create unique beer with an extremely complex flavour profiles. Our bar is fully stocked, and we have a variety of other alcoholic and alcohol-free options.
Our pub is family and conversation friendly with an open concept, and our brewery equipment is out in the open and easy to see. We believe in transparency and want our customers to be able to see our clean, well-kept facility and recognize the level of professionalism and care that goes into our products. We have a cozy, bohemian vibe familiar to those who’ve spent time in brewpubs on the west coast. Some have described our decor as post-modern war industrial, which is the result of us building most of our pub with our own hands using simple fabrication techniques and reusing just about everything.
We are super easy to get to — only a couple blocks from the Chinook LRT station and directly adjacent to bus stops for several bus lines. Car2Go users will be happy to know that we are in the service area (and our parking lot is heavily used for that purpose).
We hope this sounds like the type of place you’d love to spend time in, and we look forward to seeing you at Prairie Dog Brewing soon!
