Win Tickets to CAMRA CiderWISE

Comments 46 by Rebecca Bollwitt

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.


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, a true cider evangelist, will also be on hand to talk ciders.

    Cider is an excellent beer alternative. It’s a shame you can’t get Scrumpy Jack in BC anymore 🙁

    I was at the Gluten Free Expo on the weekend and enjoyed trying new products. Being gluten intolerant has its challenging and not being able to enjoy beer is one of them. I would love the opportunity to go this event!
