Situated on the corner of 10th Avenue and 1st Street SW, Bottlescrew Bill's is a long-time fixture on the Calgary pub scene. Owned by the Allan family since the start, the restaurant side (Buzzards) opened in 1980 followed by Bottlescrew Bill's Pub in 1985.

Today both sides share the same great kitchen, beer list and service, offering over 300 beers from around the world. As expected, the menu includes much-loved pub staples such as nachos, wings (try them Bill’s style!) and poutine.

But the kitchen goes further than that. With 20 years of experience under his belt, Executive Chef Aaron Scherr and his team are always coming up with creative dishes that take the “pub food” idea to a whole new level. With innovative items like almond lamb korma, butter chicken and wild boar meatloaf you can enjoy great food and great beer in a modern yet casual setting.

Home of Calgary's best beer selection and featuring the Around the World in 80 Beers passport - travel the world without leaving the bar!
