It’s no secret that it gets downright cold in Whistler. Despite the logistical nightmares the frigid winter weather will often present, a strong case can still be made in favour of the cold. We boast some of the finest skiing in the world, which brings folks from far and wide to our humble town. The savviest of these visitors will inevitably come to the same conclusion that locals have long known: one of the most effective methods of thawing out is by having a libation or two in the welcoming warmth of the local sports bar!

Brandy’s at The Keg is well known in the community for being the place to escape the elements. Regulars and tourists alike appreciate our relaxed atmosphere, consummate service, ample giant-screen TVs and generous selection of drinks. It is not uncommon for folks to stop into Brandy’s to celebrate their favorite hockey team’s victory or to cap off a busy day hitting the slopes. Our Frozen Brandy’s Bomb perfectly embodies both the cold and spirit of celebration that are hallmarks of Whistler life!

The recipe is simple, and likely quite familiar: combine a shot of Jägermeister with about 3 ounces of RedBull. The difference, once again, is the cold. Rather than simply dropping a shot in a glass, the cocktail is muddled together in a frozen rocks glass. The extreme cold offers a smooth finish that sets it apart from other similar drinks. It has become a true Whistler staple over the years, with people popping into Brandy’s specifically to order “The Bomb.”

Whether you’re celebrating a birthday, a big game win or you’re just looking to get in out of the winter weather, you’ll find ideal accommodation at Brandy’s. The spirit of celebration is alive and well in our bar, and you’ll be sure to feel the energy pop as more and more ice-cold Frozen Brandy’s Bombs are ordered over the course of the evening. As Whistler’s only above-ground late-night bar, we’ve cultivated a reputation as the place where the locals go and tourists feel themselves at home when they’re away from home. We at Brandy’s at The Keg hereby invite you to carve out a piece of the experience for yourself when you’re done carving up the powder on the slopes!

Whistler has plenty of passionate sports fans. We happen to know this firsthand, since most of them have popped in to catch a game at Brandy’s at The Keg at one point or another! It’s little wonder too, as we have specifically designed our facilities to optimize the viewing experience for our sports-loving patrons. As such, we are able to simultaneously accommodate multiple parties without any interruption. Simply put: no other sports bar in the area offers the same level of comfort and crystal clarity that we do.

Our setup allows you to get the full social experience of a bustling sports bar without compromising on what and how you watch. With eight brand new 4k “ultra-HD” TVs measuring in at a massive 80” and an additional ten 65” full-HD TVs, you’ll never have trouble finding enough screen real estate to catch the game you want to see. In fact, we can go so far as to say that Brandy’s offers a 360-degree viewing experience.

We have our TVs set up in such a way that we can generally switch on the sound without disturbing neighboring parties (or vice versa). For more exclusive or larger get-togethers, we have three separate rooms that allow you to bring the volume above a dull roar, and to really get into the spectator spirit of the game without fear of bothering anybody else. This deal is made all the sweeter by the fact that we carry every single premium sports channel, so you can really watch whatever you want in an exclusive atmosphere.

Brandy’s at The Keg doesn’t discriminate based on your sports preferences. If it has the spirit of competition and is televised on premium cable, we’ll bring it to you in stunningly high definition! Whether you’re into hockey, football, basketball, soccer, skiing, snowboarding, MMA, racing, rugby, golf, cycling or anything else, you are welcome to call up your friends and have a cold one with us at Brandy’s. Our hardworking staff and outstanding bartenders will go the extra mile to make sure you’re always comfortable and content. With our superior selection of screens, full stock of libations and relaxed atmosphere, we’re sure you’ll be happy you chose us as your meeting point come game day!

As human beings, we are naturally drawn to contrast. Its inclusion in our lives colours the experiences that eventually turn into lasting memories. Think of the how the sun’s warm rays leap onto your face from the glistening troughs left behind by slicing skis through soft snow. While the dry frigid air bites at your exposed skin, the layers of winter clothing give rise to perspiration that wouldn’t be out of place during a summer hike. These images of Whistler’s finest winter offerings wouldn’t be complete without the complimentary Après-ski cosiness found at Brandy’s at The Keg!

After a long day hitting the slopes, you’ll need to cool down from the effort while warming your bones. There’s no better way to do both than with our signature hot beef dip and beer special! Savoury, thin-shaved prime rib with slow-roasted mushrooms and onions in a crisply toasted baguette forms the perfect delivery vehicle for our succulent au jus. The inevitable mouth-watering can be abated with a refreshing, ice-cold craft beer from our extensive selection. Served with a side of fries or salad, this classic Whistler combo is enough to satisfy even the hungriest of skiers.

Of course, there’s more than one way to warm the soul at Brandy’s. Our piled-high chicken club sandwich never fails to deliver outstanding taste, while our juicy all-beef burgers might just be enough to make you call it an early day out there on the mountain. Get into the Apès-ski spirit with our fairly priced spirits and everyday drink specials! Our mellow and inviting atmosphere makes it easy to feel right at home after hours of speeding downhill.

Brandy’s at The Keg is your refuge from the winter weather – a place for you and your friends to finally gather after carving up Whistler’s powder. The threshold that separates our warm and welcoming establishment is put into stark contrast with the outside cold by the alluring aromas emanating from our kitchen. Take a load off with a cold beer, and replenish those burned-off calories with our delicious menu items. You’ll find that nobody dips beef better than Brandy’s, and we invite you to cap your day on Whistler’s famous slopes off with us!
