Our first social event/fundraiser of the new Rotary year is a Virtual Beer Tasting event.
A Taste of Camrose Brewing
July 8, 2021 7pm on ZOOM
This event will showcase our 2 local breweries, Norsemen Brewing and Battle River Brewing and our very own Camrose cidery, True North Cider. The tasting package will include 2 beers from each of the breweries and 2 ciders from the cidery. So, there is plenty for those who are not beer fans. That is the social part of the event.
The fundraising part will be a donation to The Rotary Foundation PolioPlus fund. The cost of a tasting package for 2 is $90, which includes a $50 donation to the Foundation (charitable receipt provided).
The tasting will involve not only drinking the beer, but also hearing from the brewers about how they brew their beers/ciders to get the desired flavours and perhaps a peek at what is coming out in the future. This is meant to be interactive, so feel free to share comments and questions as we sample. The evening will be hosted by Richard from Fox and Fable, who has been a fantastic partner in pulling this event together. He worked with the brewers and is assembling the tasting packages.
How do you register to take part? All you need to do is send Lou a simple email that you wish to purchase a tasting package, and etransfer $90 to rccpay@gmail.com.  We will deliver the tasting packages to you on Wednesday, July 7. If you live out of town, we can make arrangements to connect and hand off your brew tasting package.
Is this only for Rotary members? I say, the more the merrier and also the more we can raise for the Foundation. Please share this invitation with friends and family, along with Lou’s email address for them to register (lou.henderson.rotary@gmail.com). She will need an email address and mailing address from the non-Rotarians to get them the Zoom link and the charitable receipt. We plan to invite a few friends to join us at our house for the tasting, so you might consider doing the same. Each tasting package is intended for 2 people. We are putting posts on social media, so please share them widely to your circle of friends.
We are looking forward to an entertaining and educational evening learning more about Camrose craft beer and cider.  Hope you will join in on the fun!
