Alberta Beer Week 2017
It’s Alberta Beer Week, so as the Alberta Small Brewers Association says “Drink Alberta for Craft’s Sake!”

“It’s the most wonderful time of the year.”
“It’s the happiest season of all.”
No, not Christmas! This celebration lasts a full week. It’s…
The celebration of all Alberta Beers and that just makes me happy. There are so many great beers and fabulous brewers to choose from in this province and Alberta Small Brewers Association does a wonderful job highlighting them. There are so many beers and breweries that they couldn’t be fit into just one day and you definitely need at least a week (if Alberta beers take a special place in your heart, like they do ours, the rest of the year we’ll be happy too).
Don’t believe Alberta has THAT many breweries, think again! Check out our:
