In fact, if you come to Calgary there’s always a good time to be had. Here are some upcoming events to encourage you to sample some of the city’s finest libations and raise a glass to the new year!
Taking place at the Glenbow Museum on January 16, the MS Calgary Whisky Festival is the venue to savour the finest of liquors!
“Whisky” is a derivation of the Gaelic phrase, “whiskey da” which means “the water of life.” Talented artisans have poured hundreds of years and thousands of hours into transforming malt and mash into this classically smoky and fiery drink.
The Calgary Whisky Festival exists to cater to the most ardent of connoisseurs, but if you’re just starting out on your voyage into the wide world of whisky there will be incredible and informative workshops to bring you up to speed. Then sample from over 300 whiskies offered through 40 different vendors, who represent some of the finest distillers in the world!
Calgary is seated in the heart of the Canadian Prairies but is a short drive to the Rocky Mountains. The beauty and accessibility of these two different rugged landscapes has created a friendly rivalry – what’s better, the flatlands or the mountains?
See that rivalry play out at the Prairie Dog Brewery on January 18 as they challenge the neighbouring Rocky Mountain Brewery to a tasty competition: who can create the best pairing of premium quality beer with sumptuous bites of BBQ meats. One thing’s for sure – the spectators of this appetizing event is the guaranteed winner!
Along with fabulous food and beverages readily available throughout the city, Calgary is a wonderful getaway with countless attractions, activities, and events. Book a room or suite at the Best Western Premier Freeport Inn & Suites and our friendly staff will be excited to tell you exactly how to make the most of your Calgary adventure.
