Beta, Beer, and Buddies

Hi all,
I’m moving to Canada from Alaska. I’ll be in the Banff area this summer doing some research. I’m wondering if anyone has suggestions for resources (books, websites, people, etc.) and rivers to checkout while I’m there. Maybe we could arrange a trip? I don’t know what my work schedule will be yet, but I’m willing to do what it takes to make it happen. I’m also hoping to find some micro breweries for post-river shenanigans. So any help there would be awesome, too.

Thanks and cheers!

Are you still around?
