Couple hundred beers up for sampling, all under one roof? Sign us up.

It’s just four days until the 2012 edition of the Calgary International BeerFest, at the BMO Centre.

Spread over two days — Friday and Saturday — the event features, in addition to beer, beer seminars, info on food pairings, live music, a big screen for those who don’t want to miss the NHL Playoffs, and some grub to go with the suds.

Speaking of suds, because I know that’s what all of you want to know about, the full list can be found here. Alberta is well-represented, including Calgary breweries Big Rock, Village, Wild Rose and Mountain Crest.

But the event also features beer from across the country and around the world.

My advice for events like this is simple: try something new. I guarantee that for most people in attendance there is beer they’ve never tried or heard of before.

Don’t be scared. It’s only beer.
