What You'll Get
Winston Churchill was famous for the high standards he applied to alcohol, quipping that "Liquor is quicker, but get me a single-malt scotch with moon rocks in it! I'm the English president!" Be like Ol' Winnie with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of upscale pub fare and craft beer at The BottleHouse Beer Parlour, located on 10 Street Northwest in Kensington.
The BottleHouse populates its menu with a small city of aromatic plates and more than 40 varieties of Canadian brewed ales, lagers, stouts, pilsners, IPAs, and more alongside sips from around the world. Grab a few from The BottleHouse's selection of Canadian microbrews, such as the Powder Hound pilsner from Alberta's own Grizzly Paw Brewing Company ($5.25) or Unibroue's La Fin Du Monde ($5.75), or settle in with a draft beer such as What the Huck, a huckleberry wheat ale from Fernie Brewing Co. ($6.25). The Canadian crab cake trio ($9.95) can complement your pour with crispy fried Canadian rock crab cakes hand molded and enlivened with an avocado quenelle. Arcade-game overachievers will want to treat gastro baskets to the street fighter burger ($13.95), a plucking of prime Peruvian beef carrying a protein pack of back bacon, fried egg, and havarti cheese, sprinkled with tortilla strips and, like a Greek god, slathered with flavourful kalamata mayo. A Lethbridge chicken breast stars in the alfredo chicken penne ($13.65), which features white-button mushrooms and julienne onions dancing in and out of garlic-alfredo-laden penne.
Rustic light fixtures, smooth wood furniture, and exposed stone create a laid-back, fun atmosphere within The BottleHouse Beer Parlour. The friendly atmosphere and boatload of beer selections make this spot a suitable site for catching up with old friends, throwing down an ale with coworkers, or devising alibis with co-conspirators.
- …this pub stands out because of their focus on Canadian brews and great food. – Dan Clapson, Food Network
- Pubs are also not known for pasta but taking the waitress’ word for it, I went out on a limb and tried the seafood curry fettucini…I almost fell out of my bar chair. Six pieces of plump seared prawns were mixed in with meaty sea scallops, not-clumpy pasta and a just-right cream sauce. – are you gonna eat that?

About BottleHouse Pub & Eatery
BottleHouse Pub & Eatery’s signature wings are first slathered in a housemade hot sauce—a combination of sweet and spicy—then dunked into an asiago dip. The chefs also craft a signature burger, stacking a handmade patty, pickled mayo, and sautéed onions atop a potato bun. Other creative endeavors at the pub include buttermilk-fried chicken, and apple pancakes at brunch. Meals are served at cozy tables, or at the sleek wooden bar horseshoed against a rustic stone wall.
