    #BanffBeerfest is widely considered the World’s Most Beautiful Beer Festival and will be taking place in the heart of the most beautiful town in the world, Banff, AB! The Banff Craft Beer Festival will be located along the reconstructed and reimagined Bear Street that now has a pedestrian plaza feel reminiscent of old European town squares.

    Held partially outdoors, the #BanffBeerfest allows you to enjoy delicious Alberta-made craft beer and spirits against the backdrop of the spectacular Rocky Mountains with its pristine wilderness and glacier freshwaters.

    The #BanffBeerfest is more than just great spirits, great food, and great beer – it’s a chance to dive into the past, to seek new discoveries, and most importantly – it gives you the opportunity to choose your mountain adventure!
