Winter Brew Tour Experience
The Jasper Brewing Co was opened in the spring of 2005 and was Canada's first National Park Brewery. Three of the founders were born and raised in Jasper, and from the early years of their experiences in the food and beverage industry they felt there was a large demand for a "local" brew. Combine that with a love for beer - and they decided to open a brewpub.
Your Jasper in January Winter Brew Tour Experience includes: » 6 X 6oz sampler » Brewery tour with Brewmaster » Souvenir pint glass » Jasper Brewing Co. tee shirt » Choice of burger or sandwich off our menu
For tickets email Amanda@bearhillbrewing.com.
*Please note Winter Brew Tour Experience will be capped at 12 people. Cost is $60.

PORTRAIT DEMO WITH JOHN WEBSTER
Years of working with colour, design and varied applications within the advertising field have laid a solid groundwork for John's painting. With a principle focus on portraiture, he seems to consistently capture the essence of the personalities he paints. With a style that varies from flat application of colour to vibrant knife painting and use of mixed media, he continues to grow in style and confidence with each new work.
