What is the Barley Belt?
The Barley Belt is located in the burgeoning South East Calgary communities of Inglewood, Manchester, and Highfield. With aspirations of making this area Calgary’s premier brewing district, the five breweries located in the belt hope that as more breweries open in the area they will join this initiative to promote great local craft beer together.

What is the Barley Belt Tap Tour?
The Barley Belt Tap Tour is a one-day event/launch party for this new initiative. It gives participants the opportunity to explore not 1, but 5 breweries all in one fabulous afternoon (Aug.27 noon-6pm). Entrance to the breweries is free with live entertainment, games, food trucks and more at each stop, but for $25 you can buy a beer passport which gives you 1 free pint at each of the Barley Belt Breweries. And in the beautiful craft beer tradition, $5 from every passport will go to the United Way. Don’t think you can handle 5 pints or feel like you might want more? Additional beers will be $6 each and $1 from every beer will go to United Way.
Calgary Brewery Tours will be on hand providing shuttle services between the breweries, so please make use of them and enjoy this awesome event, happily and responsibly. Please note this is an 18+ event.
