Beerfest in a Box: The At-Home Craft Beer Festival Coming to a Liquor Store Near You!
Summer festivals are the highlight of the season for a lot of us, so it definitely bums us out that they’re not happening this year. But fear not, Alberta Beer Festivals has got you covered! Beerfest in a Box is coming to liquor stores near you and it’s the perfect way to experience that festival feeling without being surrounded by hoards of people.
Alberta Beer Festivals is partnering with tons of amazing local breweries to bring you a craft beer experience like no other. Each box is filled with both fan favourites and new brews to excite and expand your taste buds, including:
Scona Gold Kölsch – This brew from Alley Kat Brewing Company is a crisp, refreshing beer that pairs beautifully with savoury dishes. Best enjoyed in the sunshine or on a patio!
Craft Lager – Big Rock Brewery uses all Alberta grown ingredients in this clean-finishing ale that is best described as “crushable”.
Hi Cutie! Wheat Ale – Born Colorado Brewing blends fresh mint and raspberries in their brewing process to deliver tart and cool notes in this ale.
Brewmaster Blonde Ale – This ale from Common Crown Brewing Co. is not your average blonde. A hoppy, citrusy blend with notes of toasty bread and a hint of caramel pairs best with savoury mains like a juicy burger.
Odin’s Brew – The Grizzly Paw Brewing Company put together this cereal brew in support of the SPCA. A blend of grains including wheat and corn make for a light and hoppy brew that pairs great with hotdogs!
Bridgelandia – From humble beginnings to great heights, Inner City Brewing continues to wow taste buds with this bright, vibrant blonde ale. Fruity aromas and a hoppy finish make for the perfect summertime brew.
Clock Out Lager – This fresh, crisp lager from SYC Brewing Co. is the ultimate after work beer. Best enjoyed with your feet up or paired with a savoury dish!
Golden Gaetz Golden Ale – Troubled Monk’s easy drinking golden ale is fermented with California ale yeast, giving it a light, biscuity flavour with a clean, crisp finish.
