This intriguing space is part brewery, part distillery, part eatery, and part barbershop — just to keep things extra interesting. Drawing from a turn-of-the-century historic reference when the Canadian government launched a campaign called “The Last Best West,” this space pays homage to the historical and ground-breaking craft brewing and distilling pioneers. Featuring glistening wood tones, a 45-seat-long wood bar, nine stainless steel brew tanks, exposed structural and decorative steel details, and custom-designed light fixtures, this project has established itself as a Southern Alberta hotspot where patrons are treated to a “brewing as theatre” experience.

The FRANK team worked closely with the client group and general contractor to keep portions of the existing brewery operational during construction all while successfully navigating a difficult approvals process for the grain roller, distillery, and barbershop components.
