Craft Beer Market’s Rookie 100L Dash

Beer lovers this is a great year for you in Alberta, so many new breweries launched and to be launched. There will be a never-ending supply of that stuff we love…mmmm….beeeer….

Craft Beer Market’s Rookie 100L Dash

Thanks to the new zoning laws enacted at the end of April 2016 and the 2013 policy change on the minimum production levels for breweries by the Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission, the microbrewery business is booming in Calgary specifically and Alberta in general. The Calgary City Council relaxed the zoning laws for breweries, wineries and distilleries, a welcomed change which made it much easier for microbreweries to set up shop in the city and the upcoming provincial flat beer tax is expected to prop the industry up some more. This summer, you will see the results of these changes with new microbreweries popping up like daisies around the city and around Alberta as well.

One of the nice things about this new blossoming industry is that rather than compete to destroy each other they are helping each other. Two companies that have really taken a leadership role in helping develop the upcoming breweries are Tool Shed and Village Brewery.

As a matter of fact, starting the July 29th, 2016 you can catch many of the new brewers that launched earlier this year at Calgary Craft Beer Market‘s Rookie 100L Dash. This event will take place every Friday from 4-7pm and will pit two of the “rookies” against each. First one to sell out wins and moves on to the next round.

The two teams brewing it up are:

Team Sherman (Tool Shed):
