Off the Grounds: Coors Banquet

Written by: Rachel Antony

Coors Banquet is the beer of Stampede and why wouldn't they be? Get your hands on a cold one at all the hot spots across the city this Stampede season. 

You pulled out the boots, bought a new cowboy hat and plaid shirt - you’re ready to go for the next ten days of Stampede. Whether you’re headed down to the grounds for the crazy Midway foods or to listen your favourite country band play, we know it’s not Stampede unless you’re holding a cold one. Coors Banquet is the beer of Stampede and we’re not at all mad about it.

The best part is you don’t even have to be at the grounds to get your hands on Banquet, they’ll be all over the city helping you celebrate what this city is all about. They will be at five concerts coming up and of course at all your favourite restaurants and bars across YYC.
