Be The Place That People Want to Be.
When you come to The Canadian Brewhouse, you’ll feel like you’re right at home, because our house is your house…only we have way more TVs! That’s right, you won’t find a better selection of screens for watching the sports you love anywhere else! We even provide tabletop speakers for those nights when multiple sports and teams are playing.

How it all happened...
An Edmonton boys' dream turned reality. Roger Newton purchased an old pool hall in the west end of Edmonton, with a clear vision of what was missing from the city of champions. There were Irish Bars, English Pubs, and even Belgian Cafes, but there was nothing that truly honoured the rich heritage of Canada. Combine that with his love of Sports, Roger opened the first ever Canadiana Sports Bar in West Edmonton, The Canadian Brewhouse. This location has since closed, but it was the start of a service industry giant.
It takes time, passion, and persistence in order to grow a single restaurant into a nationally recognized brand. In 2007, The Canadian Brewhouse leadership realized that they had the opportunity to do just that. They took over another bar in North Edmonton and worked tirelessly to renovate it and turn it into a Canadian Brewhouse in just 30 days.
In anticipation of the pending growth in South Edmonton and the expansion of Anthony Henday Drive, CBH opened up store number 3. This was the first CBH designed and built-out from the ground up. You can still see some of the same concepts and features in our newest locations as you can here, such as large vaulted ceilings, a second floor, and a jumbo score clock overtop of the main bar.
Our first foray into a market that wasn't Edmonton. Granted, Sherwood Park is like Edmonton's super cool neighbour who always brings beers to a barbecue. This location has been the go-to sports bar in Sherwood Park ever since we opened our doors. Here, we recently underwent a renovation to add another 100+ seats to accommodate the massive amounts of local sports teams who host fundraisers and team events at the location.
Grande Prairie opens up to an excited city ready to watch some sports!
This was the year we really started to take off and opened up 4 stores around Alberta! Downtown Edmonton, Camrose, Lloydminster, and Spruce Grove all opened up in the same year.
Red Deer and Calgary Harvest Hills opened their doors.
Leduc, Fort McMurray, and Saskatoon opened their doors.
Airdrie, Okotoks, Regina Grasslands, Kelowna, and Fort Saskatchewan all opened their doors this year.
Winnipeg, Regina Eastgate, Abbotsford and Moose Jaw all opened.
Cochrane, Prince George, Fort St. John, Richmond, Calgary Mahogany, Chestermere and St. Albert South all opened their doors.
St. Albert Jensen Lakes and Edmonton Lewis Estates opened their doors.
Calgary Northgate, Saskatoon West and Edmonton Windermere opened.
One of our most anticipated locations opened its doors in Lethbridge in 2020. This Brewhouse is the first one to feature something no other Brewhouse has ever had before; a full-sized bowling alley in the basement! That means you can choose from bowling in the basement, restaurant/bar on the main level, and rooftop patio!
Cleared for takeoff! Our Edmonton International Airport location opened its doors to travellers and featured a unique seating arrangement that allows guests to sit with us in both pre and post-security! We also opened our 7th Edmonton location at Manning in the northeast side.
Another one of our most anticipated locations opened in 2021: our first step into the Ontario market was in Oshawa on August 5th! Our rooftop patio has become a great draw during one of the hottest summers Canada has had in a long time!
