FESTIVALS

Jasper Beer & Spirits Festival

Your mountain adventure awaits! The Jasper Beer & Spirits Festival, hosted at the world-renowned Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge, is unlike any beer festival experience in the world. Think of it as part beer/spirit festival, part intriguing story-time seminars, and part wilderness adventure.

Each evening of the 2 night festival will feature a different line up of tantalizing craft beers and spirits to sample, as well as succulent foods prepared by the amazing chefs at JPL! During the day, listen to passionate stories from some of the top brewers and distillers in the world plus other amazing guests. Think of the Summit like the League of Super Heroes, but more chill, with brewer/distiller super powers, and way, way, way more beards.

The Jasper Beer & Spirits Festival is a unique mountain retreat. Those who experience it will want to keep it secret, so you’ll need to be there to discover what this mountain adventure holds in store for you!
