Ok, so maybe not 99 bottles of beer (75 actually), and they’re not so much on the wall as they are in a cooler, chilled and waiting. Pilsners to stouts and everything in between, The Bottlehouse Beer Parlour has got a brew for everyone. The Bottlehouse opened up a few months ago in the business district of Kensington, just a hop, skip, and a jump from downtown Calgary. There is no shortage of establishments that put emphasis on beer selection in this city, but this pub stands out because of their focus on Canadian brews and great food.
Reading over their beer menu, you’ll realize that about 75% of the selections come from all across Canada. Of course standards like Big Rock and Molson are stocked, but opting for something more ‘micro’ like the Powder Hound Pilsner (Alberta) or La Fin Du Monde Ale (Quebec) is what this place is really all about. The food menu is definitely a step above your regular pub fare, with executive chef Hans S. Puccinelli cooking up Peruvian-influenced dishes. Everything is made in-house, and they put a nice emphasis on sourcing as locally as possible. Their pork and beef come from Highland Farms in Innisfail, Alberta, and the organic chicken comes from Sunrise Farms in Lethbridge. There’s a different lunch and dinner feature each day of the week as well!
