The Campaign for Real Ale’s Vancouver chapter — CAMRA Vancouver — is broadening its horizons and welcoming one and all to CiderWISE, a cider and gluten free beer tasting event.

CiderWISE

More and more people are finding themselves gluten-intolerant and that can make enjoying craft beer difficult, however more and more gluten-free options exist, such as most ciders and the increasing number of Gluten-reduced and Gluten-free craft beers. Attend CiderWISE to try some of these unique and delicious alternatives. The event will showcase ciders and gluten free beers made locally and from the US.

Where: The Wise Hall, 1882 Adanac St, Vancouver
When: Saturday, February 8, 2014
Tickets: $25 ($20 for CAMRA and WISE Members) includes 3 tokens and tasting glassware (yours to keep). Tickets can be purchased online in advance.

Participants include:
Sea Cider
Lonetree Cider
Merridale Estate Cidery
Mongozo Beer – McClelland Premium Imports
New Grist & New Planet Beer – AFIC Group
Sir Perry, Excalibur & Rekorderlig Ciders – Premier Brands
Bards Beer & Brunehaut Bio Gluten Free – Bravo Beers
Glutenberg & Reverend Nat’s Cider – UnTapped Craft Importers… and more!

Learn more about cider and gluten free beer at the event’s Education Stage as well with Danny Seeton, CAMRA Vancouver’s Education liaison. Alex from CiderMonger.com, a true cider evangelist, will also be on hand to talk ciders.
