STAMPEDE BEER BINGO – Wednesday July 11

Join us Wednesday July 11th for a special edition of our monthly beer bingo – Stampede Style! Tons of great food and drink specials, prizes and music! Make a reso today 😉 Bingo dobbers and entertainment provided!

STAMPEDE – July 6 – 15

Thinking of booking a stampede party or get together this year? We’ve got 38 Stampede seasons under our belt! Featuring live bands day and night on our outdoor stage with plenty of room to dance, tons of delicious beer, wine, coolers and cocktails, our famous outdoor BBQ buffet, Stampede Happy Hour, prairie oysters specialities, and heated, covered patios – rain or shine it’ll be a good time! Book your stampede party for as low as $5/person – email Jane at stampede@bottlescrewbill.com to inquire!

25TH ANNUAL TESTICLE FESTIVAL – starts July 6th

Our annual Testicle Festival begins Friday, July 6th and runs until the end of July (or until we run out of balls)! Prairie Oysters (sometimes known as Rocky Mountain Oysters) are bull calf testicles prepared for human consumption! This delicacy is most often served as an appetizer with accompanying herbs, spices, sauces and dip. The owners of Bottlescrew Bill’s started this event in 1993 when Buzzards Restaurant was a cowboy cuisine destination. The tradition has carried on throughout the years, with many variations of bad puns & good food! This year we are sure to have a number of appetizers along with our famous Prairie Oyster Caesar!

6TH ANNUAL VILLAGE NUTRAISER – Thursday July 5

It’s that time of year again and to kick off our 25th Annual Testicle Festival and the Calgary Stampede, we’ve teamed up with Village Brewery & the Calgary Prostate Cancer Centre to raise money for prostate cancer. We brew speciality “ball beer” using Village beer, Prairie Oysters and other various ingredients to create a one-of-a-kind cask! A 20oz pint of Ball Beer will be sold for $100 each with one hundred percent of the proceeds going to prostate cancer research! Be sure to invite your out of town guests, family and friends – if you have the balls 😉

DRINK BEER DAY – Thursday June 28

Another reason to start the long weekend early: 40% off all bottled beers over $8 (excluding the Vintage menu). This is a great way to work on your Around the World in 80 Beers Passport or try a few of the new 40+ rotating and seasonal beers we’ve added to the regular beer list!

CANADA DAY LONG WEEKEND BEER SALE – June 29 – July 2

We’re serving up $5 Canadian micro-brews all weekend long! Get out and enjoy the patios before they’re taken over by a sea of cowboy hats! We’ve got food and drink specials all weekend long – come break in the patios and let us know what ya think of the new renos!

CANADA DAY KICKOFF BEER BINGO – Wednesday June 27

Kick-off the long weekend extra early with our monthly beer bingo event! Featuring $6 bottles of Lagunitas, half-price chicken wings and tons of great (and often ridiculous) prizes. We also give away tickets to an upcoming Blueprint event every month! First game kicks off around 7:30pm.

NEGRONI WEEK – June 4 – 10

Join us from June 4-10th for Negroni Week! 7 days, 3 simple ingredients: Campari, Gin and Vermouth. A traditional Italian summer drink perfect for sipping on the patio – especially when a dollar from every drink goes to a good cause!

Thursday, May 31st
