Join us for the Downtown History & Beer Tour

Posted on : Monday, August 25, 2014


September 6th, 2014 will mark a very important day for history buffs and beer connoisseurs in Lethbridge. This day will mark the official kick-off tour for the Downtown History & Beer Tour.


This event is not only rich in beer and good company; it is also rich in downtown history. Local historian, Belinda Crowson, will lead the history portion of the tour. Belinda is well known for her witty and interesting story telling as well as her passion for anything history related.


Joining Belinda will be beer aficionados, Roy and John Pogorzelski. They will treat your taste buds to diverse craft beers at each stop along the tour route.


The tour is scheduled for five-hours, 2 p.m. through 7 p.m. The walking tour will stop at five of our unique business and cultural venues. Each stop will feature a different craft beer to be tasted and perhaps a small bite to eat.


Along the trek to-and-from the beer tasting stops, Belinda will provide attendees with stories such as the history of prostitution in Lethbridge as well as other hidden, history gems that are all part of the history of our downtown core.


Besides our fantastic tour guides, you’ll have your very own passport to be able to record the beers you like and where you purchased them from. You’ll also receive a souvenir beer glass to remember the day by.


20 tickets will be sold for this event, so if you’re interested in purchasing one for yourself or a friend call 403-327-9002 and ask for Melissa to book you a spot. Tickets are $20 per person. Don’t wait too long as these spots will fill up quickly.
