Alberta Small Brewers Association

The Alberta Small Brewers Association, much like the EBGA, aims to promote Alberta based craft brewers and will be starting a media campaign to educate the uninitiated and celebrate the hard work and creations of local brewers.

Keep an eye out for the logo below, which will soon denote local craft beer friendly locations, local craft brewery initiatives, and promotional events!

Edmonton Beer Geeks Anonymous will be working closely with the Alberta Small Brewers Association in the future - keep your eye out!

EBGA On Rails - A Summer Streetcar Craft Beer Series

Four years running and still as popular as ever!  Thanks to all who have waited so (im)patiently for this series to be officially announced! 

This summer Edmonton Beer Geeks Anonymous brings you another series of craft beer adventures aboard the Edmonton Radial Railway Society's antique streetcars.

Each event is centered around a specific brewery who will be featuring (where logistically able) a unique cask conditioned ale or selection of seasonal beer. 
Edmonton Beer Geeks Anonymous aims to promote awareness and education in the local craft beer community.  Hosting this series of events gives us unique platform to reach an audience that may not normally be aware of the truly amazing things Alberta breweries are producing as of late. 

Each event listed below is an opportunity to be aboard an antique streetcar with a representative of the given brewery for an hour and half.  Each event will primarily take part aboard the streetcar while parked in the middle of the High Level bridge overlooking the Edmonton river valley.  The ticket holders will be able to interact with the brewery representative(s) aboard the streetcar while having the opportunity to sample the unique beer crafted for the event. 
Ok, so details about each individual charter can be revealed by following the links below, but here is what you all are likely looking for - the who and when!

13 May 2015 - Yukon Brewing

17 June 2015 - Brewsters Brewing Co.*

15 July 2015 - Alley Kat Brewing Co.

12 August 2015 - Ribstone Creek Brewery

16 September 2015 - Norsemen Brewing Co.

7 October 2015 - Mystery Brewery**

* The Brewsters streetcar is extremely difficult to get on to.  The patrons of this charter must win their way aboard.  The only way of winning tickets onto this charter is to visit the Edmonton Beer Geeks Anonymous booth at the coming Edmonton Craft Beer Festival!  Contest details available at the EBGA booth at the festival or by request.

** Not an actual brewery name.  This brewery is confirmed and details will be kept secret as best possible.
