With an on-site brewery, a menu of gastropub favourites, and a slew of special events, it's no wonder The Big River Brew Pub gets gaggles of repeat guests. Brewmaster Michael Stewart fills kegs with his own concoctions, continually evolving the selection of about 10 on-tap craft beers. Beer aficionados might opt for the taster rack, which lets them try four different brews, or choose their favourite full-size swig to complement the pub's burgers, pizza, sandwiches, and poutine.
If the food and brews weren't enough to draw customers in, the weekly specials might be. On Friday and Saturday, an award-winning buffet—you can tell because each dish wears a sash and diamond tiara—beckons patrons with bottomless dinner food. Game-day burger and beer specials keep fans cheering. And Big River even teams up with other businesses—including movie theatres and bowling alleys—to offer special combo deals.
