2019 Breweries, Distilleries & Ciders Coming Soon

2018 BREWERIES, DISTILLERIES & CIDERS

The following is a list of breweries, distilleries and ciders that will be at the 2018 Calgary International Beerfest! (*Alberta born)

DISTILLERY DISTRICT

One of the many reasons people love craft beer and spirits is they feel so connected to the people who brew and distill it! Craft distillers are authentic, passionate, and take great pride in their work, and with the growing number of craft distillers in Western Canada ABF is creating a specific area at both the Calgary International Beerfest (May 3 & 4) and Edmonton Craft Beer Festival (May 31 & June 1) for people to discover these locally distilled spirits!

The Craft Distillery District will be a must-see destination for patrons at Beerfest.  They will have their senses stimulated with visual and engaging displays, the ability to sample a wide range of spirits from over a dozen distilleries from Western Canada and taste delicious food from local restaurants inspired by spirits.  There will also be opportunities to learn about the process of making craft spirits via seminars that will take place in the district area and exhibitors will be able to interact with festival goers to uncover why this is the next craft evolution!
