The Grizzly Paw Brewing Company is located in picturesque Canmore, Alberta in the heart of the Canadian Rockies. Established in April 1996 by Niall Fraser, The Grizzly Paw Pub & Brewing Company has become a landmark destination by locals and tourists alike.
By 2009 business was booming! Additional fermentor space was required and built adjacent to the pub. In 2006, we added six handcrafted sodas to The Grizzly Paw family. Brewed with the same principle as our beer: our soda is brewed with fresh water, local ingredients, and brewed by locals who care. Our sodas are offered in grocery stores across Alberta and British Columbia. All of our products utilize fresh water that streams out of the Canmore reservoir, and real ingredients such as honey, cane sugar, and raspberries.
Ground-breaking took place in 2011 for our new brewery facility and centre. Beer and soda production was moved to our new location and production began at 310 Old Canmore road in 2013 with the downtown brewery still in operation producing small-batch seasonal ales and lagers.
Our timber-framed brewery located just off the Trans Canada Highway currently has a capacity to brew 630HL of fresh beer and soda. We currently produce six main beer sections at the brewery which consists of our four founder series beers that have been with us for 20 years, as well as two recently developed IPA-influenced summit series line. The Grizzly Paw continues it's innovation with the 622 Main St Series that is brewed at the original downtown pub location.
