Molson. Amstel. Duffy’s. Younger’s Tartan Scottish Ale. These are just several of the more than 200 beers that fizz over cans and cascade out of kegs into the sampling glasses and plastic-lined boots of Grande Prairie International BeerFest guests. The annual celebration of brews—which has catered to sold-out crowds for nearly a decade—stretches out inside the Bowes Family Crystal Gardens' 18,000 square feet, tantalizing taste buds with samples of ales, lagers, and pilsners from throughout the globe. As fest-goers meander through the space, they can pick up goodies from exhibitors that may include bottle openers and beer magnets, then head toward the stage where numerous live bands and DJs shred tunes and mix beats with traditional drinking songs.
