Welcome back Beer Aficionados! We are excited to present the 3rd Annual BeerCanBeiner. If you joined us last winter you will definitely agree that the bevies were amazing and the atmosphere was fantastic. We had almost 100 skiers and beer drinkers out on the night loops and we look forward to hosting you all again this season. We will be posting this year’s guest breweries shortly!
Now in its third year, the BeerCanBeiner is steeped in nordic tradition. Well… the Birkebeinerrennet is, and that is a 54 km race that has taken place since 1932 in Lillehammer, Norway and commemorates a trip made by the Birkebeiner loyalists to save the infant heir to the Norwegian throne, Håkon Håkonsson, in 1206.
Our event takes a slightly frothier route, traveling just over 5km under headlamp to three rustic venues under the night sky. Sample craft beers from throughout the region and finish off with a coffee or hot chocolate at the lodge once complete.
Check out this amazing video from last year’s event!
A great deal of careful tasting goes into the selection of the breweries for this event. It’s a pretty rough gig. We hope to introduce you to some new flavour experiences and new-found favourites.
