Génération Craft is bringing the new wave of Craft Brewing to the Alps – featuring international and home-grown Craft Beers, street food and live music.
We are so excited about our growing range of Craft Beers that we are taking them on tour – taking over the beer lines in some of your favourite alpine bars or ‘popping up’ our very own pallet bar in a variety of funky locations between now and the end of winter.
Check out the current list of dates and venues below or contact us to get involved. More dates are being added all the time so see our FB page for the latest version. Each event embraces the ‘Generation Craft’ culture – a unique combo of great places to drink, awesome live music and our ‘street food challenge’ – daring chefs all over the mountains to serve up their take on this culinary craze.

THE STREET FOOD CHALLENGE
No beer event is complete without some nice grub to line your stomach. We are daring all of our host venues to enter our Street Food Challenge – tickling your taste buds with their own take on beer-friendly fodder.
The winning venue will be announced at the end of the Génération Craft tour.
We’ll be there, sometimes with a brewer or two in tow to explain a bit about the beers and make sure that you find the one for you. From Pilsner to Porter, Ambrée to IPA it’s all going to be there. Are you?
