THREE THINGS TO DO: Cheers to beer law anniversary at KPU brewing lab

Also this week: Registration opens for summer camps, shred-it event in Cloverdale

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

1. 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. The grand prize includes $800 in craft beer swag – growlers, T-shirts, gift cards and such. For more details, including some history about the purity law, visit Kpu.ca/purity-law-500th-anniversary.

2. Registration for the City of Surrey’s summer day camps opens this coming Monday, April 25, for kids aged three to 18. Art ventures, sports, theatre, science, cooking and road trips are among the camps offered this summer. New this year is a payment plan that allows for half of fees to be paid upon registration, with the other half due on the first day of camp. For full details, visit Surrey.ca/recreation or call 604-501-5100.

3. Shred your sensitive documents and help a local charity during an event Saturday (April 23) at the Envision Financial branch in Cloverdale, at 17433 56th Ave. Iron Mountain, a data and records management company, will be there from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. to help cut into identity theft as part of the by-donation fundraiser for The Full Cupboard program, benefiting local food banks.
