Beer alert!! Calgary Beer Fest Giveaway

20x Calgary Beer Fest Tickets

This giveaway has ended, sorry!

Beer good. Free tickets to beer festival good.

The good people at Alberta Beer Festivals have donated 20 tickets for us to giveaway, however we please. 10 Friday/10 Saturday. Thank you guys!

We’re giving away 16 tickets on this blog post, the remaining 4 are being given away on our Facebook page, here:

That is an ugly link, but it’ll be easier to click on if you’re on mobile.


What is it?

A large festival of local beer barons and foodbags. There’s something north darling of 500 different types of beer to sample, over the course of two days. You get a sample mug, buy some sample tokens, then walk around and check out the vendors and what they’re offering, trade your tokens for provisions, be merry. Highly recommended you go with friends.

Beer mug collection.

Our collection. Can’t remember which year is which. Bonus! Oktoberfest. (that is milk)


Beer Fest Circa 2014

I (Mr) had gone to CBF 2013 but didn’t take any photos. The Mrs. Crackmacs and I went in 2014 together and took a bunch. It was good times, we met so many people, many of whom we still talk to today and have become good friends with.

We had a great time and always look forward to it coming back.

Calgary Beer Fest 2014

We didn’t take too many pictures in 2015, focused on listening to Graham talk instead.

Anyway, let’s get you some tickets 


We’re giving the tickets away in pairs because it would suck to just get one ticket. 4 x winners for Friday, each getting two general admission tickets. 4 x winners for Saturday, general admission as well. Tickets will be e-mailed to winners and you can just hold up your phone with the code on it, or print out the tickets and bring them.

Reminder: 4 tickets available only on Facebook here.

See all the info about the event here, – they also have events in other cities. Haven’t been to those yet.

    Love wheat beers, glad we have some local ones. Looking forward to connecting with our Calgary brewers and sampling some new stuff too.

    Sad I won’t be able to indulge this year, baby on the way, but it doesn’t mean my hubby and a buddy can’t. He loves his IPAs

    I loved the casks they featured last year, and MEAD?!? I tried ginger mead for the first time at last years fest and now I love having a bottle to share with friends and parties for a sweet after-dinner drink.

    I’ve been meaning to go here for years, but all my friends are too lazy

      And to answer the question, I am a big IPA fan, but a nice cold clean pilsner can sometimes be perfection in a bottle

  11. Cara Fraser at 2:42 pm

    Like Pilsners and Lagers the best, and just started trying Meads

  12. DREW Riley at 1:43 pm

    Love Good beer. All sorts.

    I love Tool Shed. First tried People Skills at the Pig & Duke and am hooked. Thanks for the awesome giveaway. Fingers crossed
