In a region shaped by industry and tragedy, the Crowsnest Pass survived and has created on of the most vibrant and beautiful 'watering holes' in the Canadian Rockies. Surviving amazing hardships early on in the Crowsnest Pass was an accomplishment in itself, how did those early residents do it? Well... to be honest, they had a little help from a few libations now and then.
This book wades through how alcohol is interlaced with the history of the area, it is really an expose on the buildings that facilitated the pub culture in the region. Each community has its own unique history and distinct buildings that were meeting places, social houses, and hallowed grounds, spaces that tied the history, alcohol, and people to one another.
So... might I suggest you sit down, grab a drink, and enjoy the fascinating (and historic) pub culture of the Pass. Cheers!
