Cheers to the “Reinheitsgebot” at KPU’s brewing lab in Langley.

Beer lovers gather Saturday afternoon (April 23) to celebrate the 500th anniversary of the “Reinheitsgebot,” otherwise known as the German Purity Law of 1516, during a special event at KPU’s brewing lab in Langley. Surrey-based Big Ridge and Central City are among local brewers involved in the tastings and tours, from noon to 3 p.m., as part of a Fraser Valley Craft Beer Passport promo.
