Enjoy a day dedicated to notable beer while immersed in Calgarys legendary western hospitality.
Theday begins in picturesque Downtown Calgary, at the base of the iconic Calgary Tower. After a few quick introductions, a luxury vehicle will make its way to Village Brewery. Enjoy the first tasting at Village Brewery and hear their craft story, one that is closely tied to the arts and cultural scene.
The next stop is always a favorite lunch at the Craft Beer Market, offering over 120 local and international taps flowing with perfectly chilled craft beer. Their steel draft lines rise up from the towers to cross the ceiling and cascade down into the glass-enclosed keg room, ensuring the brew they serve is as fresh as the North American classic cuisine they serve.
After lunch, shuttle to Calgary's first nano brewery Dandy Brewing Company. Working in a small space, these innovative brewers use creativity and alternative-brewing equipment to produce some 'dandy' brews. Their enterprising tale oftentimes tempts others to set up their own home brew system.
The next stop is Tool Shed Brewing Company, and yes, they started brewing in their tool shed. Tool Shed overcame challenging obstacles to become influencers by changing age-old liquor laws with passion to spare. Cuddle up around the pizza oven and listen to their fun-filled anecdotes always a crowd pleaser.
Last but not least, the final stop is at Last Best Brewing and Distilling. A brewpub by trade, their success has blossomed to three Alberta locations. Enjoy a sample pallet with tasty appetizers that leave taste buds wanting more. While there, why not get a shave or haircut in the brewery's barbershop parlor? The tour ends with the option to stay at Last Best and check out their extensive menu. Otherwise, the chauffeur/guide will provide instructions on how to secure the quickest ride home via cab or personally drive guests back to Calgary Tower, where the tour began.
The tour also includes a souvenir bag stocked with goodies and coupons, including bottled water and a snack; collectable beer labels (by request only); a pint glass from Village Brewery; merchandise discounts at all stops, including beverage discounts.
