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.

Stop by the downtown Pub & Restaurant for a great place to enjoy a local beer with great, fresh food! Visitors can also tour The Grizzly Paw Brewery located at 310 Old Canmore Road *Thursday to Sunday (*subject to change and availability). It is a chance to learn about the brewing process from malt selection through to bottling. Make this an opportunity to pick up off-sales, beer swag, and fill your growlers! Call ahead to book a spot or contact the brewery online.


Building on the success of our destination brew pub located in downtown Canmore for over 20 years we our new restaurant and event facility in the spring of 2018. Tank 310 is located on the third floor of our majestic timber frame brewery on 310 Old Canmore Road. When determining the best approach in naming the most recent hospitality venue in Canmore we chose to keep it simple and straight to the point, the restaurant is located at 310 Old Canmore road in a brewery full of big, bright shiny tanks. It is truly that simple.

It's the perfect beer destination featuring our approachable Founders Series brands that started it all along with our recently developed bold Summit Series. Rotating seasonal favourites will add to the innovation and variety of beer styles we have become known for. We offer something for everyone, including small batch sodas brewed in house that stand well on their own or as a mixer that has been well integrated into our signature cocktail program.

Embracing the craft beer culture our executive chef has developed an approachable menu featuring Alberta beef, oven fired flatbreads, seasonally fresh salads along with savoury classics. Our menu is designed to pair well with Blonde Ales, Full bodied IPAs, Innovative Lagers or our Signature Barrel finished beers.

The brewery has been gifted panoramic views of the Three Sisters, Ha Ling Peak and Mount Rundle that can be enjoyed from the restaurant or adjoining patio on the 3rdfloor. The venue is well designed to accommodate groups and ala cart dining in either a public or private setting.

Enjoy a pint and our “Only Burger" while watching the team in all stages of the brewing process, you may lend a hand and be part of the craft beer movement.
