Every year, we are blessed with a series of events in Alberta that bring us our favourite hoppy, crisp and delicious beverage – Beer. Whether you prefer a domestic pale lager, a locally inspired craft IPA, or a well-known international classic, Banff Craft Beer Week (dubbed the most beautiful beer festival) has something for everyone! If beer isn’t your thing – tag along for delicious food samples as well as spirits, ciders, and not to mention those incredible mountain views.

This year’s event will be taking place on the Bear Street pedestrian plaza, with a feel reminiscent of old European town squares. The food samples will feature some of the most delicious bites from local Banff restaurants. Throughout the Banff Craft Beer Week, not only will you be able to attend the festival, you’ll also be able to experience beer & spirit themed activations both in and around the beautiful town of Banff and up on the slopes. From beer pairing dinners to trivia nights – and beer yoga to apres beers on the hill – there will be something for everyone. 

The Banff Craft Beer Festival and Banff Craft Beer Week are about more than just great spirits, great food and great beer – it’s a chance to seek new discoveries, tell better stories, and choose your mountain adventure!

The team at ABF is committed to providing a safe environment for all attendees, staff and volunteers so will be following all COVID policies, including the Restriction Exemption Plan and mask mandate for indoor activities – to read more, click here!
