A favourite series of events from the past is returning this year. The Edmonton Radial Railway Society operates and maintains a small fleet of antique streetcars from around the world. EBGA charters these streetcars to host beer tastings and seminars. The streetcars board at the north side of the Strathcona Farmers Market Building, then travel to the middle of the High Level bridge, 150ft above the North Saskatchewan river. There, parked in the middle of the bridge, aboard a 1947 street car from Australia is where the EBGA is hosting five beer tastings this year.
