Alberta’s beer industry will be quieting down for the winter – while snow falls on the malt barley fields and local beers ferment in their tanks – but that doesn’t mean its fans will follow suit.
Our coldest season actually marks the perfect time to celebrate beer.
This November, Banff is hosting what Alberta Beer Festivals calls “the most beautiful beer festival in the world,” with hundreds of craft beer connoisseurs flocking there to experience it.
Last year was the first Banff Craft Beer Festival, and was a sold out event. This year will likely be even more successful; there has been an extra session added to allow even more people to attend and tickets are already 50% sold out.
We’ve collected some of the reasons why so many people come from across Western Canada to experience the Banff Craft Beer Festival, and why you’ll definitely want to go.
