Had a visit to this establishment while I was in Calgary for the beerfest.
I quite like the atmosphere of this bar. The crowd wasn't too young, yet not too old either. There is a nice looking area with couches and then the rest was wooden tables and chairs. It was quiet enough to talk, and the music was all decent. Overall the place had a good feel to it.
The decor was nothing special in this bar. Around where I was sitting they had all the plaques for their around the world in 80 beers clubs. Mostly wooden furniture that I saw as well. Nothing overly eye catching.
Service was alright. I can't say I was impressed nor unimpressed. It was Saturday night and the place was relatively busy as well so service wasn't expected to be amazing.
This bar had the best selection or beer I've seen at a bar in a while. Comparable to the globe in Edmonton. I was happy to see a lot of Canadian stuff coast to coast as well as a few of my favorite Belgian, German, and English Imports. Very impressive.
Although the beer I drank wasn't expensive, I did see some high prices on some imports and premiums. Some of the prices could be lowered.
All in all I had a good experience at Bottlescrew Bill's. I will probably visit it again when I go back to Calgary.

When i first discovered this place, i thought it was amazing. It is true, it's a decent place to get a beer, however, I'm now finding their beer selection, as big as it is, lacking in overall quality. I found it pretty fun to go in and try a new beer every time. It's a good starting block for people who wish to experience new beer. You can join their "around the world in 80 beers" which awards you with stuff as you go, like a free appetizer after you've completed so many of the beer on the passport. Once a year they hold their own beerfest which is cramped but great. It's a far better value than the beerfest held at the roundup center. You can have a good time and try a lot of beer with just the initial beer tickets you get with your admission of $25 at the door. Obviously it's a lot smaller, but also a lot more fun. The food is also very tasty.

Overall.... A great place to have a few pints and some food. If you like to enjoy a nice craft beer and perhaps a pint of something new then I would recommend Bottlescrew. The barkeeps will offer you down-to-earth beer recommendations and point out some of the better beers based on your personal tastes.
