My Beer Quest Through Calgary BeerFest
Armed with my tasting glass, my Just Beer App, an open mind and some great company, I ventured into the Calgary Beerfest.
By Shira Kogut on May. 09, 2016
I have been to tastings & brewery tours and I’ve been to big festivals, but never to a Beer Fest. This amazing event blew my mind, so many delicious beers in one room (ok, two rooms). Good thing I read the article “Carpe Beerum (seize the beer!) – 10 Ways To Be a Beer Festival Ninja“, so I wasn’t totally overwhelmed.
I have to say that one of the really nice things about it was the spirit and mood in the room. Everyone was just happy and in good spirits (yes, I know a majority were full to the max of beer and hence the happiness, but still). People waited patiently in line (I just spent 12 years in the Middle East where there is no such thing as a line, just chaos, so I can appreciate the patience and politeness of a well-formed line and the calm it can bring to an event), talked to each other, laughed, compared beers, just an all-around great time. So a major hats off to the organizers, Alberta Beer Festivals! Now let’s get down to beers. There were a lot of really great beers at Beer Fest and while we tried a lot of them between the 4 of us, our livers thank us for not trying all 500+.
Here are my five favorites:
