Tastes of Calgary: HMSHost opens the Summit House at Calgary International Airport

Global restaurateur HMSHost – part of Avolta and a world leader in creating dining for travel venues – has opened its newest restaurant at Calgary International Airport.

Located in Concourse B, Summit House offers travelers a taste of Calgary by way of one of the city’s most well-known local craft breweries, Banded Peak Brewing which was founded in Calgary in 2016 by Alex Horner, Colin McLean, and Matthew Berard.

For the first time at the airport, travelers can enjoy a selection of Banded Peak Brewing’s award-winning and style-bending craft beers on draft. The beers were created to celebrate the moments before, during, and after an epic adventure and include Microburst Hazy IPA, Mount Crushmore Pilsner, and Summit Seeker Amber IPA.

Chris Niergarth, General Manager Commercial & Retail Development, The Calgary Airport Authority, said, “Summit House is an exciting new concept inspired by local Calgary entrepreneurs that will offer guests a casual yet elevated taphouse environment. Introducing options like this underscores our commitment to provide guests with excellent dining experiences that reflect local businesses. We’re proud to bring Summit House to YYC in partnership with HMSHost and look forward to future success together.”

Summit House’s menu includes chef-crafted dishes that pair perfectly with a cold craft beer. Appetizers range from pork dry ribs and chili garlic chicken lettuce wraps to a poutine made with Banded Peak Brewing’s Summit Seeker Amber IPA. Travelers craving some good, old-fashioned comfort food while on-the-go can enjoy Summit House’s delicious House Burger, while those seeking a little adventure along their journey may opt for the Salmon Bowl, made with steamed rice, nori, spicy gochujang, pickled vegetables, yaki glaze, green onion, cabbage, carrot, and edamame.

The Summit House menu also features tacos, sandwiches, salads and a daily choice of house-made soup served with garlic toast. Breakfast offerings range from a classic Steak and Eggs plate featuring aged Alberta sirloin to a Spicy Chorizo Bowl, along with omelets, avocado toast and more. In addition to craft beer on draft, Summit House has a full bar, offering travelers a variety of bottled and canned brews, wine, cocktails, and spirits.

HMSHost operates over 12 dining venues throughout Calgary International Airport, including several created in partnership with well-known local brands. Flames Grill, a tribute to the legacy of local NHL team the Calgary Flames, opened in 2019, and LB Taphouse, featuring the locally made beers and gins of Last Best Brewing & Distilling, opened in 2021.
