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.
