    Thank you to everyone who participated in the Freshtival on October 21-24, 2021 at the Craft Beer Commonwealth in Gasoline Alley, Red Deer.

    Category 1 - Traditional wet hop beer using only fresh hops

    Category 2 - Combination beer using both fresh and dried/pelletized hops

    Thank you to all of our amazing producers and brewers who participated in this year's Freshtival.
