October 22 is your day to experience Alberta’s good-natured and welcoming breweries with hosts who enjoy a satisfying beer as much as you. This tour will pay homage to the pioneering trailblazers and risk-takers in Calgary. They expressed an interest in producing craft beer when large and international beer companies dominated the Alberta beer scene. Experience the region’s earliest craft beer and witness first-hand the impressive growth they accomplished over the past 30 years with odds stacked against them. Their tenacity helped define what the industry has grown into today. In this tour, we paired our mentors with some exciting, young breweries who are looking to do some trailblazing themselves. Sit back and savor brew samples whose flavors are enhanced by Alberta’s fresh glacial mountain water and locally harvested crops.
