We have gone here many times and never been disappointed. They have a nice variety of choices and are well priced for the menu. My husband enjoys the beer selection...not too many wine choices for me but that's ok. :-)

Bonners Ferry one and only brewery is exceptional! The Kootenia River Brewery has the best micro beer I have every tasted. If you are a beer connoisseur, this is your place to visit. I'm a member of their Beer Club that offer anytime discounts to their long list of brews and appetizers! The varied food list is exceptional. There are... More

Stopped on our way home from skiing in BC. Great atmosphere. Solid food and beer. With all of the microbreweries in the northwest, this is not the top choice, but each beer has a distinctive flavor. The aftertaste are also distinctive, which means they really try. My favorite is the Scottish Ale. It is award winning, and you can tell.... More

Until they turn up the heat inside expect the coffee, soup and you to be cold while you are there. Never a good sign when a server is wearing a stocking cap and sweatshirt and another employee was wearing a hoodie. Food from the kitchen was hot when it arrived but didn't stay that way long. We did not linger... More

Both the food and the beers are wonderful here. They have a really nice menu and a great selection of beers including a nice tasting deal. We have been here on many occasions and always enjoy it!

Caught off guard by the beer -- stopped for a pint after skiing and now I've got to go back to buy some growlers. I had the Scottish Ale and dang, it was good. Wish this place wasn't so far from where I live! The food was good. Nothing hugely special but a blue cheese burger and a bowl of... More

We've visited here probably 5 times in total. It is in a convenient location with lots of parking. The food has not ever been great...just ok. The huckleberry beer is very good. As were the onion rings. Servers are fine, but not ever too friendly. This could be a great place with a few adjustments to the food & in... More

Does it really matter there is easy, great parking at KRBC? I think so! That is just the start of many small, but well done details at this restaurant. Since we were there last, the chairs and tables have been upgraded. The menu is simplified, but broad with something for everyone. And three sizes for beer is respectful for those... More

Ok,so I'm a sucker for brew pubs, and just my luck they are popular, and popping up all over the place . KRBC has been in place for 5 years, and it's easy to see why. They converted and old auto repair shop in down town Bonner's Ferry, and put in huge window with a great view of the river.... More
