Tapping the West

Craft Beer Market
10013 101A Ave, Edmonton, AB T5J 0C3
An evening of storytelling and beer tasting
Join us during Downtown Dining Week for a quick history of independent brewing in Alberta!

Join Scott Messenger – author of Tapping the West: How Alberta’s craft beer industry bubbled out of an economy gone flat – for a lively account of the development of independent brewing in Alberta. It’s a tale of risk-takers, game-changers, unabashed beer lovers and, perhaps most importantly, one that will be supplemented by six tasters of beers from across the province. Come and learn what has helped make this community of brewers what it is today: one of Canada’s most highly regarded craft beer jurisdictions. It’s infotainment at its tastiest!

Tickets are intended for guests 18+ and include a flight (6 samples). Additional drinks and food items can be purchased from Craft Beer Market during the event. Scott’s book, Tapping the West: How Alberta’s craft beer industry bubbled out of an economy gone flat will also be available for purchase.

Please note – stairs are required to access Craft Beer Market’s event space.
