OUR
MISSION

Alberta Beer Festival’s Mission is to provide the ultimate beer & spirit experience! Each of our 6 events provides a forum for breweries and distilleries to share their stories, passions, and products with the beer enthusiasts of Western Canada. ABF strives to have a positive impact in the beer/spirit industry, with local charities, and within our community.

MEET THE CREW

BILL ROBINSON

President

Along with my business partner Mark, I am one of the co-founders of Alberta Beer Festivals. Building the company has provided me with incredible experiences I never imagined I would have – and one of the things I love most about our 6 festivals is sharing those experiences with others. Being a part of ABF has allowed me to follow my passions for philanthropy, travel, and of course beer and spirit festivals! I’m proud of what ABF has been able to accomplish in the beer and spirit community, and I’m looking forward to seeing where things go from here.

MARK KONDRAT

C.E.O.

Along with Bill — I started what is now Alberta Beer Festivals in 2002. It’s been amazing to see how the beer culture has evolved in Alberta in that time — and I’m proud that we have been a part of it! My primary role at ABF is to make sure we have the best line-up of breweries and restaurants possible. If you work with a brewery or restaurant that would like to participate in one of our festivals, please call or email me anytime.

TREVOR BACON

Director of Communications

Mmm beer! my current role with Alberta Beer Festivals is the Director of Communications. If you have questions about press releases, media, inquiries, any aspect of our festivals, a general beer query, or wanna go for a beer — drop a line!

DAWN TOFSRUD

Volunteer Coordinator

Back in the olden days, I was a new volunteer with a local charity. A friend who was volunteering dragged me to SAIT to help out with a “Beer Festival”. Back home, beer festivals include cowboys and dirt so, imagine my surprise at finding a whole movement dedicated to craft beer. I like beer, good beer.

DILLON STECYK

Through these I ensure constant growth in all our endeavors.
