Tour - Big Rock Brewery

Thursday, Sep 14, 2017

Enjoy learning what makes Big Rock craft beer a work of art on a tour of the Calgary-based brewery and sampling of their beer. This event will be a great networking opportunity over drinks and appetizers.

Come on a guided tour of the Calgary based brewery Big Rock - don't worry, sampling is part of the fun!

The founder of Big Rock Brewery, Ed McNally, already in his 60s in 1985 discovered a small space to set up shop and brought in his first brewmaster. At the time, Ed’s plan was to "make the beers that I want to drink, not what will be popular." Thus, the first three beers were Bitter, Porter and Traditional. A tour of the Big Rock Brewery gives you the opportunity to experience the careful crafting that happens behind the scenes and insight into the process from the top of a barley bin to the bottom of a pint glass, all originating in Calgary! All tours are hosted by a trained Beerologist. Follow their state-of-the-art brewing process with your own eyes, ears and nose, from the unloading of ingredients, through the brewing and fermentation stages, all the way to packaging.

Breweries and Micro-breweries have become a staple in the Calgary retail and flex-industrial landscape and this is your on-the-ground opportunity to visit one of Calgary's most established breweries with an insider vantage point: enhanced tour being provided for CREW Calgary, beer tastings and of course great food and networking. 

This event is open to members and non-members, so bring your colleagues!
