MILL STREET BREW­ERY While the name­sake brew­ery is based in Toronto, lo­cal brew­ers in Cal­gary de­vise many of their own recipes to go along­side fa­mil­iar favourites such as the Orig­i­nal Or­ganic Lager. The brew­pub is on-site at the brew­ery and boasts two out­door pa­tios as well as an up­dated pub menu. En­trees: $$ 219 - 17 Ave SW,
