May Bonus Clue’s Week 4



We finished off an amazing month of bonus clues with Craft Cellars Beer, Wine and Spirits store in Vista Heights.

Participants had to locate a local Alberta craft beer in the store and then if they were interested sample some beers at the growler bar.

Craft Cellars hosts events and tastings regularly at their unique 24 foot tasting bar. They believe product education is the key to growing customer knowledge and creating passion and awareness for the products in store.

They have an 8 tap growler bar with a strong focus on fresh, local beers and over 900 different craft beers with plans to bring in more.

Craft Cellars also has an excellent selection of collector and specialty wines and spirits, including a fantastic assortments of scotches and whiskeys. Check them out on 32nd Avenue NE.
