Calgary Craft Beer: It’s Literally ‘On The Map’

Tourism Calgary, the Alberta Small Brewers Association, and Banded Peaks’ Colin McLean had a meeting of the minds and created a printed Calgary craft beer map for your beer-finding pleasures!

Calgary Craft Beer: It’s Literally ‘On The Map’

A printed map…seems a little old school (especially when you can get a digital version here on JustBeer). But hey, sometimes it’s nice to break away from digital and get back to a map, right?

YYC Beer Map

Intended to help you with those behind the scenes brewery tours, the YYC Beer Map lets you plan your route via a variety of different “Calgary Ale Trails”. Of course, these are only examples of trails you could explore. Calgarians are encouraged to get creative and devise their own Calgary Beer tours. If you’re a beer guru, you could make it a challenge to hit up all of Calgary’s craft beer locations, but always remember to keep it safe and drink responsibly.

You can pick up your copy of the map at any independent craft brewer in Calgary.

How To Make The Most Out Of Your Calgary Ale Trail

Give yourself time. Don’t rush through them. Plan no more than 3 per day, so you’ll have time to enjoy a tour, take in a beer, have a flight or participate in a tasting and maybe even a meal.

Now get out there and explore Calgary craft beer and #Drink Local.

Remember drinking local is the best way to support your local economy and get a fabulous and fresh beer. Just the way it was meant to be! I’ll raise a glass to that!
