Alberta Brewery Awards 2022

Alberta Brewery Awards 2022

After a fun filled night in Red Deer, Alberta, the 2022 Alberta Brewery Awards have wrapped up! Congratulations to all Breweries who participated and to those who took home some hardware for the shelf! 

The overall winner for 2022’s Best Brewery in Alberta went to the great people at Blindman Brewing. Although Blindman is in Lacombe and a little too far for our regular Calgary and Edmonton Brewery tours (we would love to do a custom trip), we did have the pleasure of working with Blindman at this summer’s Brewery and the Beast. We love supporting great beer and we also love supporting great people, so give us a shout and we will make a special trip up there just for you to see for yourself. 

The (hopefully thirsty) judges had 26 categories to taste from. Each sample evaluated for appearance, aroma, mouthfeel, flavour and overall drinkability. Categories ranged from German/Czech Pilsners to my favourite Hazy/New England, and even included Belgian/Farmhouse to Barrel Aged and everything in between. There were even awards for Craft Sodas and the new 'craft beer', Craft Seltzers. 

Of the dozens of breweries who submitted beers in this year's competition, Canadian Craft Tours' Alberta team visits a majority of them on our Edmonton and Calgary Brewery Tours. In fact, on almost every tour we take, our venues have won some form of medal whether it is Provincial or National. 

A lot of hard work goes into crafting an award-winning beer and we want to thank all the venues that work with us in offering the best Brewery Tours in Canada.

Here's a look at all the winners!

Hefeweizen- A Quick History of a Hazy Past

by Brandon Moscrip November 20, 2022

Hefeweizen from the German Hefe (yeast) and weizen (wheat) is one of the oldest recorded styles of beer, dating back to 3400 BC. Although we know it today as a traditional German style beer, wheat beers were first brewed by Sumarians and then the Egyptians centuries before the Bavarians began drinking the beer.
