Calgary Tap Room Tour 2017
Gearing up for a great year of Alberta beer with Calgary Tap Room Tour 2017. This article sets the stage for the year to come.
By Chris Walker on Feb. 28, 2017
Since I’ve really become fond of and enamored with the craft beer scene here in Alberta, I’ve decided to do what I can to support it. I joined CAMRA, and will consider being elected to the Executive in the Spring (I think). I’ve also decided that I am going to visit every taproom and brewpub in Calgary this year, and may even include surrounding areas like Cochrane, Airdrie, Bragg Creek, etc. I will also likely be able to visit a few out-of-Calgary places due to my travels. So far I’ve managed to get visits in to High Line Brewing and Cold Garden. I got excited because I thought I could add a few more to my list, but it turns out those visits were in late 2016. Oh well, I guess I’ll make the sacrifice and visit again.
I’ve determined that the only fair way, in my mind, to rank the various establishments, is based on how good their IPA is. There are a lot of good IPA’s brewed in this city and province, so I am really looking forward to this journey / challenge. However, I can’t imagine that, based on a scaled ranking, there will be a huge gap between first and thirty-eighth.
By the way, if you’re not looking to pick up a variety of beers, purchasing direct from the brewery is a pretty good option.
