ABBeerFestival’s Choose It, Name It, Label It Contest

Alberta Beer Festivals has teamed up with the Brew Master Program at Olds College to offer Albertans the chance to choose a style, a name, and a design a label for their 2016 Festival Collaboration Beer.

The first contest was held to choose the style of the beer from these 5 styles:

  • Stout
  • Red Ale
  • Porter
  • ESB
  • Cascadian Dark Ale

Congratulations to Christine Tonks who chose Red Ale, along with 50 % of all the beer style voters!

The second contest was held to choose a name for the Red Ale. Congratulations to ‘Name It’ winner Tamara Konrad who came up with Rale Yard Red Ale.

The third contest was held to design a label for the Rale Yard Red Ale. Congrats go to ‘Label It’ winner Christine Shultz who designed this wonderful label featuring a familiar Alberta scene with mountains, spruces, and a rail line.


All three ladies won some great prizes and were invited to Olds College on March 9 to join the OC Brewmaster and guest brewer Graham Sherman (Tool Shed Brewery) in brewing up Rale Yard.

In addition to the prizes, all three will have the  chance to be a judge at the ABF in Calgary (May 6-7) and the beer will be showcased at the Old College Brewing booth at both the Calgary and Edmonton beer festivals. There will be a ‘sneak peek’ event at both Calgary locations of Pig n Duke and Beer Revolution in Edmonton when the brew is ready.
