YYC Beer Week 2018 is Twice the Size!
The much anticipated event already has participation from 34 local craft breweries, more than 40 restaurants, and 30+ retail locations (more than twice the size of 2017). Building on last year’s success, the week will once again feature a collaboration of local restaurants, breweries and retailers; all with a strong focus on local craft beer. Each participant will provide an exclusive beer-related menu item, promotion or event throughout the week, with a dollar from every item sold going towards a charity of their choice.
Visit the official website of YYC Beer Week to see the full list of participants. Updates are made daily so check back often.

New this year, YYC Beer Week will feature an official collaboration beer, the largest collaboration beer in Calgary’s history, featuring more than twenty local breweries.
