The perfect food and beer pairing is like the fateful meeting of destined lovers, best celebrated with a tiny mock wedding presided over by a curmudgeonly pepper mill with a heart of gold. Combine cuisine and beer the way nature intended with this Groupon to the BowValley Iron Chef & Beer Fest at the Canmore Golf & Curling Club on Saturday, April 14, from 5p.m. to 10 p.m. Choose from the following options:

  • For $15, you get one ticket to the fest (a $30 value) and the after-party at the Georgetown Pub (a $25 value; a $55 total value).
  • For $25, you get two tickets to the fest and the after-party (a $110 total value)<p>

This Groupon does not cover the cost of food tickets ($15/person) or beer tickets ($0.25 each, with most beers costing 2–5 tickets).

At the 2012 BowValley Iron Chef & Beer Fest, six carefully selected Alberta chefs will each vie for taste bud attention by roasting a whole pig in their own unique style. Guests redeem food tickets (not included with today’s Groupon) for samples of all six masterpieces, then cast a ballot for the winner. They can also opt to pair their pork with 2-ounce tumblers of more than 100 featured beers (not included with today’s Groupon) from brewers including Alley Kat, Steam Whistle, and The Grizzly Paw. As officiants tally up votes, including celebrity judge John Gilchrist, testers have ample time to reflect on their brews’ subtle flavour notes and the possibility of diverting a stash into pocket-sized kegs.

Though the cook-off itself takes place among the pines and Rocky Mountains of Canmore Golf & Curling Club, guests with after-party tickets can reconvene at the Georgetown Pub after 10 p.m. for live music and one round of free beers. While enjoying the culinary jubilee, guests may spot curious moose, deer, and caribou dissatisfied with that night’s woodland karaoke party.

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.
