The 16th Annual Rocky Mountain Wine & Food Festival
This Friday and Saturday, October 18-19, the BMO Centre will be hosting the 16th annual Rocky Mountain Wine & Food Festival. But don’t let the name of this event fool you. There will be more than just wine available for drinking alongside the many delicious creations from local food purveyors.
Attending craft beer festivals pays off! Like I mentioned in my post on the Kananaskis Craft Beer Fest not only do you get to taste premium beers, you get to meet a lot of interesting people. One of the guys that I spoke to at the festival was Kent Paterson, the head brewer at Banff Avenue Brewing Company. Kent told me that he was coming to Calgary on Saturday so we got to hang out for a while to talk about Banff Ave. and the craft beer scene in Alberta.

The Germans know what they are doing when it comes to celebrating beer, sausages and lively oompah bands. I attended Calgary’s first Oktoberfest festivities this past weekend and I’d have to say that Alberta Beer Festivals would have made King Ludwig I proud.
