Rotary club’s annual Tip’n Taste event on Friday

LANGLEY – At $25 for five samples of beer and five samples of food, it’s hard to beat for a night out on the town.

Local Rotary clubs have banded together to put on their 12th annual Tip’n Taste event, this year on Friday, July 4 from 6 to 9:30 p.m. at Coast Hotel and Convention Centre in Langley.

One of the organizers, Linda Mross of the Rotary Club of Langley Central, explained why the event is so successful.

“I think we’re a stronger group when we pull together and put an event together,” Mross said. “It helps the groups bond and we’re all in Rotary for the same reasons.”

The Rotary Club of Langley, Rotary Club of Langley Central, and Rotary Club of Langley Sunrise host the event, which focuses on beer, as well as wine, ciders, coolers and food.

With more than 50 sponsors of the event and more than 500 guests, it’s an opportunity to eat, drink, and socialize, plus musician Brett Wade will provide the background music.

Included in the $25 ticket are five beverage samples, five food samples and entry into the door prize draws. Additional sample tickets are just $2. “For $25 it’s an

evening out to taste different kinds of beer, different food, affordably,” Mross noted.

Among the beverage suppliers are House of Rose Winery, Steamworks Brewery, Coal Harbour Brewing Company, and Deep Cove Brewers and Distillers.

Food will be served by JD Farms, Season’s Experience, Milestones, Choo Choo’s, and many others.

Tickets are online at or can be purchased at the door.
