    Red Ale - American Amber / Red | 
    5% Alcohol/Vol. | 
    16 IBU (Subtle Bitterness) 
    A medium bodied beer with slight caramel and roast flavours. This traditional Scottish style amber ale uses a combination of various roasted and pale malts to create its distinctive character. Mahogany in colour, Rutting Elk Red is a great intro into the darker beers. People who want to move beyond our pale beers or have some beer knowledge will enjoy this classic.
    Inaugural Batch: Sunday, May 8, 2011

    Wheat Beer - American Pale Wheat | 
    5% Alcohol/Vol. | 
    14 IBU (Trace Bitterness) 
    Made with real honey, local pale malts and wheat, this is a sweet medium bodied beer. Wheat makes up almost 30% of the grains of this Grizzly Paw favourite. This beer greets you with a floral nose and a well rounded body, sweet palate and smooth finish.

    Wheat Beer - American Pale Wheat | 
    5% Alcohol/Vol. | 
    10 IBU (Trace Bitterness) 
    A light, unfiltered wheat ale with raspberries, this is a refreshing balanced beer. The combination of tartness and sweetness derived from the raspberries create a light, crisp, yet fruity palate. The rich golden colour is a combination of specialty malts and real raspberries added to the beer. The haze is a result of the yeast still lingering in suspension. An enduring favourite, this is a pleasant beer that is enjoyable either on the patio or after skiing. Available in bottles so you can take your fruity favourite home with you.

    After visiting dozens of breweries in Ontario, this was the first one in Alberta. Canmore is an amazing little town to begin with, and Grizzly Paw is just a perfect fit. Everything about this Brewery is just about perfect. The beers are all perfect.. different styles but all great in their own way. Loved Everything I tried. The chicken club sandwich is great and compliments the beers very well. Loved the patio and the interior of the Brewery. The selection of merchandise is very impressive and the staff is great and very helpful.

    One of the best spots physically for tasting beer that I've seen - beautiful view from a pretty patio. This location is different from their pub in the village of Canmore itself. Food there was not good. At the taproom we had a nice sandwich however. Beer is solid with a couple of really good ones including the brown ale and their traditional ipa.

    Beer was good, but the lentil burger was really bland and dry and not juicy at all. I drank a pint of beer and a glass of water with it as it was a really, really dry burger. In my opinion, they need to add a bit of spice to lentil burger patty and a bit more sauce to the burger as a whole, maybe even a slice of tomato. The burger was served with Thai onion soup, which was a nice combination. I also think that their chimichury had mint in it, and I personally did not like mint in my burger. The brisket burger that my friend ate was nice. They liked it.

    Good burger but everything else was garbage. Sides of only salad or soup & they were the size of your fist... the beers were good but came with a head on it larger than an ogre. For the 'best brewery in Canmore' I was a tad underwhelmed and probably won't be back especially for the price.

    Wonderful restaurant at Canmore. They have the best view from the bar. Having great food and tap beer. I would especially thanks to the staff. The help for getting my backpack return. The friendly people here is the best reason to come here.
