Jan 11: Trappist Beers 101

Central City on Beatty, Vancouver, BC; 19:00–22:00

The Order of Cistercians of the Strict Observance, or as we refer to them, Trappists, are well known for the high quality of goods they produce with their hands. Their most well known good, however, is the beer that’s been produced in their monasteries for hundreds of years. When you’ve had that kind of time to perfect your craft, no wonder they produce such a flavourful and high quality beer.

Have you had the beer but want to know more about Trappists? Or maybe you know the order but are unfamiliar with their beer? Perhaps you even fall into both camps! If so, come journey back to the old days of Europe with our guest lecturer Ben Coli, the Head Brewer and Owner of Dageraad Brewing as he walks you through the history and the tasting samples of the 100% Trappist beer line up!

As always, beer samples are provided! Plan a safe way home, don’t drink and drive.

CAMRA Members – if there are only non-member tickets available, please purchase that and let us know, we can refund the price difference.

**There are no refunds on ticket purchases, however your ticket is transferable and you are welcome to give your ticket to another person in the event you are unable to make the class**

Please note – you don’t need to print your ticket for the event – just check in with our volunteers when you arrive!

Jan 14: Gladstone Brewing Co.’s 3rd Anniversary Party

Gladstone Brewing, Courtenay, BC; 16:00–20:00

It’s been three years since we opened our doors! Remember when there were no craft breweries in the Comox Valley? It’s hard to imagine, but it was only three years ago!

2017 holds a special place in our hearts for all of the friends we’ve made. It was a year full of collaboration brews with Townsite Brewing, Riot Brewing, Vancouver Island Brewing, as well as Doan’s Brewing Co.

We’ve invited our collaborators to come celebrate with us, and they will be bringing special casks and specialty beers for you to try.

We will also have live music from Cam Boyce and Chad Pab!

Let’s celebrate together!
