ABF and ATB Financial are excited to announce that the #BeTheBrewer Contest is back! Join the beer journey from style choice, to beer naming, label design, brewing, and finally beer launch as you get to experience what it is like to #BeTheBrewer!
Every year, ABF teams up with the Brew Master Program at Olds College to brew a beer for our spring festivals. Starting January 12th, you are invited to #BeTheBrewer and experience what it’s like to run your own brewery and brew your own beer. You (along with other Albertans) can vote on which style gets brewed, submit a name for the beer, design the beer label, enter for a chance to help us brew the beer, and of course be at the beer launch party! Then, next spring when you visit Beer University at either the Calgary International Beerfest (first weekend in May), or the Edmonton Craft Beer Festival (first weekend in June), you can brag to all your friends that you were one of the ‘brewers’ that made the beer being poured in BeerU!
‘Grand Prize Winners’ will be given the chance to BREW THE BEER, as well as win other amazing prizes! Check out all the prizes.
Everyone who enters will have a chance to win a Banff Craft Beer Festival package, including Weekend VIP tickets (Friday Evening & Saturday Afternoon sessions) to the beer festival and a Friday night stay at one of Banff Lodging Co’s properties!
BEER AWARD (CIBA)
THE CIBA AWARD TAKE PLACE IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE CALGARY INTERNATIONAL BEERFEST AND EDMONTON CRAFT BEER FESTIVAL
Certified Beer Judges, Celebrity Judges, and Festival attendees each get the oppurtunity to decide their favourite foods and beer in a wide variety of categories, making the ABF Awards a truly unique addition to our lineup of festivals.
Category awards at the ABF Awards are judged by panels of Certified and Celebrity judges at the Calgary International Beerfest. The Metro’s People’s Choice Awards are voted on by the public by ballot at both the Edmonton Craft Beer Festival and the Calgary International Beerfest.
