How did we do?

Very much like the other holidays, it is a shame National Drink Beer Day is only an annual occurrence. But keep your head high!

Once you have those empties pooled together, book a pickup with SkipTheDepot and let us take care of recycling your bottles while you hang out and enjoy some couch time!

These are only a couple of our favourite breweries but did you know there are over 70 microbreweries in Alberta?
