According to Canadian Beer News, last week Canada’s first Belgian Beer Cafe location had its grand opening in the Edmonton International Airport. Belgian Beer Cafe is an ABInbev-owned international chain of beer cafes, specializing in Belgian offerings, with the new location operated by an Edmonton-based restaurant chain that operates local Chili’s restaurants among others. It is located past security in the terminal – so for travelers only.
I guess it has actually been operating for a few weeks already (clearly I missed it before boarding my flight a couple weeks ago – mind you it was 10am so I wasn’t looking). While I suspect bucket-loads of Stella are going to be sold out of that place, they do say they have 50 Belgian beer on their menu. So, it might be a good spot for a good (yet pricey) beer if your flight is delayed.
I won’t say anymore until I actually experience it with my own eyes and tastebuds, which might be a while as I am not slated to fly anywhere for the next few months. I just thought I would update the crowd here. Thanks to Canadian Beer News for finding the story.
