The summer beer festivals are nearly upon us and Albertan’s have much to celebrate with the upcoming Calgary and Edmonton Beer Festivals!
Calgary is hosting the International Beer Festival on May 6 & 7 and as Western Canada’s largest beer fest, there will be over 500 different beer and cider to try (that’s a LONG day). Participants will also get to take part in beer seminars, vote for the People’s Choice awards, cooking seminars, music and more. There will also be delicious foods from over 40 of Calgary’s best pubs and restaurants.
Edmonton follows suit not long after on June 3 & 4, and comes in close behind Calgary with over 400 beers onsite. New this year, there is also an opportunity to find out exactly how beer is made, preserved, and enjoyed at ATB Financial’s Beer University!
Tickets for both these events run between $19 and $40 for the full weekend VIP experience, but if you use the promo code ALE15 you’ll receive 15% off the price tag. You can buy tickets here.
