A beer festival, like the beach, is a relaxing oasis that allows tired travellers to bask in golden hues, frolic in frothy spumes, and get in splash fights with siblings. Savour sudsy fun with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get one ticket to Bow Valley Iron Chef & Beer-Fest on Saturday, April 30 at Silvertip Resort in Canmore, plus admission to the after party from 8 p.m. to midnight at The Georgetown Inn (a $55 value). Choose between two options:

  • One ticket to the afternoon event from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. and after party.
  • One ticket to the evening event from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. and after party.

Bow Valley Iron Chef & Beer-Fest melds the culinary talents of seven local restaurants with more than 100 international alcohol-fermenting contenders in a picturesque outdoor valley setting. Guests rate pours for potency and bubble-blowing capability, sipping suds from vendors such as Whistler Brewing Company, The Grizzly Paw, Big Rock, Sleeman, and Foster's. Two-ounce taste tumblers provide ample reflection time, and wines, spirits, and ciders sit ready for those with Pavlovian hops aversion.

Comestible critics witness the hearty competition of this year's Iron Chef baby-back-rib-themed gauntlet, which pits skillet slingers of seven local restaurants—Silvertip Resort, The Iron Goat Pub & Grill, Canmore Rose and Crown, The Grizzly Paw Brewing Company, Tapas Restaurant, Zona's Late Night Bistro, and Habitat Restaurant—against themselves and sauce-seeking falcons before presenting final creations in a guest-judged tasting. Chefs bestow barbecue-empowered stamps on each ticket, which becomes the voting ballot at tasting's end.

Bow Valley Iron Chef & Beer-Fest invites late-night frolickers to The Georgetown Inn after party to craft wheat statuettes in honour of the winning chef while tasteful tasters also enjoy alcohol-herding live music ($25). Although admission to both events is included for Groupon users, fete frequenters will have to purchase beer tickets ($0.25 each) and their tasting ticket ($15) once at the festival.

Customer Reviews

Would be nice to see more restaurants in the future but other than that was a very fun evening!
Braiden L. · November 7, 2011
It was an entertaining evening but held in a very crowded environment. Vendors had NO chance to talk about what they were serving and recipients had very little information about what they were eating and drinking. TOO MANY People to make this really enjoyable and informative.
