Alberta Beer Festivals – Oktoberfest Edition

Ladies and gentlemen; get out your dirndl and lederhosen, it’s time for Alberta Beer Festival’s annual Oktoberfest September 25th and 26th at the Upper Big Four Building, Stampede Park. Yeah, I know that’s September (not October) but think of it this way…you get to sample wobbly pops from many of our local and Canadian craft and authentic Bavarian breweries a bit early! Here are just a few of the participating breweries:


At some point in the evening you’re bound to get hungry and Alberta Beer Festivals has that covered too.  Visit some of these fine purveyors and they will suggest a dish pairing for your brew. restaurantsoktoberfest

Both beer and food samples are sampled using sample tickets only (these are in addition to your ticket to the event). Sample tickets are $1 and sold in sheets of ten. The minimum amount of tickets per 4 oz. beer sample is 2 and the food generally requires a few more.

Alberta Beer Festival will be supporting two charities this year; Kids Up Front ( gives donated event tickets to children and youth identified by a broad network of partner agencies that provide child and family services) and Autism Aspergers Friendship Society of Calgary (AAFS). Way to be charitable Alberta Beer Festivals!!!

NOTE: I wasn’t kidding about the dirndl and lederhosen…there are prizes to be won for those who come dressed in traditional Bavarian garb.

Friday, September 25th: 4pm to 10pm Saturday, September 26th: 2pm to 9pm

Online Advance Tickets $19 Weekend Passes $30 Tickets at the door are $25 and entrance is subject to capacity. ID required.

Tickets available at and in store at all Brewsters Calgary and area locations.
