Can you handle the ultimate beer garden crawl at the Calgary Stampede?

Jul 5 2017, 8:45 pm

One of our favourite parts of Stampede (other than the free pancake breakfasts) has got to be enjoying a cold brew or cocktail in a beer garden as some poor schmuck gets tossed off the mechanical bull in the background РAKA day drinking at the rodeo.

If you feel this way too, we’ve created a list of all the places to get boozy on the Stampede grounds to make things easy for you. Just make sure you soak the delicious bevys up with some crazy Midway food to soften your hangover the next day.

We recommend a cheers and a bevy at each spot to make a whole day of it (with snack breaks, obviously). Here is our list of must-hit spots for a booze crawl at the Calgary Stampede 2017.
