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.
