Chief Executive Officer

Mark Kondrat is the CEO of Alberta Beer Festivals, the team behind Canada’s most unique beer-focused events - including the world-famous Jasper Craft Beer & Spirits Festival.  Through his work at Alberta Beer Festivals, and as the host of the popular Let’s Meet For A Beer Podcast, Mark has spent over 20 years showcasing some of the world’s greatest craft breweries and distilleries.  Mark loves introducing consumers to new craft beers and spirits, but his true passion is having the opportunity to share inspiring behind-the-scenes stories from the people who have built the unique Craft Beer & Spirits Community!


Bill is one of the co-founders of Alberta Beer Festivals. Together with the ABF team, Bill and his business partner Mark Kondrat helped build the craft beer and spirit industry in Western Canada. ABF currently hosts 5 of the best beer and spirit festivals in the world - Calgary, Edmonton, Banff, Japser and Revelstoke - with other additions in the works.  Over the past two years, Bill has also headed up other projects such as Beerfest In A Box, Hoppy Pass, Apres Collective and Tuesday Brewing. Outside of work and family, Bill's other passion is travel. To date he has lived, worked and traveled to 84 countries - with the goal of seeing all of them in his lifetime.
