Alberta Beer Week

- May 6th, 2012

For those of you out there who didn’t get your fill at BeerFest over the weekend, and I’m sure there are a few of you out there, fear not.

You can ease yourselves back into the swing of things in Alberta Beer Week.

BeerFest has partnered with Yelp Calgary and a handful of local pubs to present the best of Alberta beer, through Yelp’s Passport to: Alberta Beer.

Things kicked off Sunday, but there’s plenty of time, but there’s still time for a sudsy journey through Alberta’s finest.

Until May 13, seven Calgary bars are offering a selection of Alberta beer for just $5 between 4-8 p.m.

Participating bars and beers include:
Pig & Duke — Village Blacksmith India Black Ale

Below Deck — Big Rock Grasshopper, Traditional

CRAFT Beer Market — Big Rock Grasshopper, IPA, Traditional, Scottish Heavy, Dunkleweizen; Wild Rose Velvet Fog, IPA, Alberta Crude Oatmeal Stout, Wraspberry; Village Blonde, Blacksmith India Black Ale; Alley Kat Full Moon Pale Ale, Charlie Flint’s Organic Lager, Aprikat; Amber’s Zombie Apocalypse, Sap Vampire Maple Lager, Chocolate Stout; Grizzly Paw Grumpy Bear Honey Wheat, Rutting Elk Red, Big Head Nut Brown Ale; Brew Brothers Black Pilsner

Any program that promotes local beer is all right in my books. After all, if we’re not drinking it, they won’t be making it. And they’re making some good stuff.
