Great place to have a surprise party. They allowed my son to bring in guitars to provide entertainment. Good catering. Great staff, delicious drinks! Have visited on other occasions to try various beers and ate paninis which were very good,
Although the weather wasn’t the best (and who would have thought we’d have snow, sleet and rain all combined in a day in April) we warmly celebrated inside at Descendants! I have to complement your staff who all were accommodating and able to adapt to our needs. You have a friendly and very competent staff who take hospitality seriously to make sure things run smoothly. This given the day’s circumstances was appreciated. You will see Glenn and I back at your location....it is a fun and inviting place...something that was noticed by our family and friends!!
We come for musical bingo often! Great atmosphere and so welcoming! We are a large group of co-workers turned friends and we range from our early 30’s to our 60’s and we all have a blast! Of course we also enjoy the selection of beers and snacks. If your a group of 10 or more, and it’s a popular night best to make a reservation however most guests are super friendly and welcoming, we have spread out over a couple of tables and made some new friends for the evening!
The staff here take the awesome space of Descendants to the next level. I planned a 50th birthday party and it was seamless. We had a great time and so did our guests. The staff felt like they were part of our celebration and that is what truly made the event feel intimate and fun. The food the drinks the atmosphere and the people were excellent.
My wife and I had our wedding reception here last Saturday. The venue was an extraordinary place for all of our friends and family to share our special day with us. The staff went above and beyond any of our expectations. All of our friends and family were impressed with their service and attention to detail, every single staff member was the best. Everyone loved the beer and the space. If I could give this venue a higher rating than this site allows me I would. Best. Day. Ever.
We had our wedding reception here. With about 90 guests, there was loads of seating and room to spare for a dance floor and food service. The exposed ceiling, brick walls and brewing equipment meant that we didn't have to decorate. Which made the day much easier. We had an open bar, so our guests got to enjoy trying all of the available beers. As well as a couple wines and liquor options. The staff was top notch. From the planning stages (we live in Calgary so planning was tricky) through the night they were on point and were able to help spot issues before they arose. At no point in the night did anyone find themselves wanting for anything. We were are fairly big drinkers, but there never seemed to be a lineup at the bar. Big thanks to Mel and Stephen for everything. I'd definitely recommend Descendants to anyone looking for a versatile and unique event space.
Descendants Brewery was an amazing option for my event and their staff made it absolutely perfect! I hosted a 30th birthday party with 45-50 people on a Saturday afternoon and we had plenty of space and outstanding service. I had coordinated a euchre tournament and not only did they provide more tables then I originally requested but they also accommodated us when the tournament went later than expected. We enjoyed their great beer, food and sweet live music from Matt Weidinger which is always a treat! Booking the event was super easy and it could not have been more affordable!! Highly recommended!
I want to thank you SO MUCH for all of your help with yesterday’s retirement celebration for my good friend. We had a fantastic time (which continued into the late hours back on his deck). Brenna, Steve and the whole crew are such professionals and really did a wonderful job welcoming our guests. It was the perfect venue and went off without a hitch.
Thanks again, and have a great weekend
