A visit to Trolley 5 Restaurant and Brewery with Calgary Brewery Tours
Perhaps the greatest indication of the growth of the local beer scene was the creation of Calgary Brewery Tours (page 46), which now offers three tour options (or you can customize a tour to your liking). Calgary Brewery Tours are well run and a great way to visit a few breweries, have lunch with like-minded friends, and sample lots of beers without having to worry about planning or driving.
Another great way to try a lot of beers in one location is at Calgary International Beerfest (May 5 - 6, page 33). It is by far the largest beer festival in the city; there is simply no better way to sample all the beer Calgary has to offer.
