Tip ‘N Taste makes a change

The annual Rotary Club Tip ‘N Taste event is due to take place on Saturday, June 4, but with a few new twists.

Along with at least 28 breweries to sample from, this year the sponsoring Langley Rotary Clubs have also included wine and coolers in the vendor list, to appeal to those who want to try something different.

“It’s an opportunity to come out and check out the different kinds of beers.” said John Dance, a member of the Langley Rotary Club, sunrise division.

For the price of a ticket, patrons can enjoy three 4 oz. drink samples and food samples from eight different vendors.

Another new attraction will be cooking with beer, a food experience that blends food with the main attraction.

For those who don’t want to take part in the wide variety of local and national beers, the event will feature a small selection of wine vendors, including Naked Grape and Domaine de Chaberton Estate Wines, and coolers from Rock Creek, Growers and Vex Hard Lemonade.

Dance brought in the wine to “keep the women happy,” he said.

“They get rather antsy after a while if they are not into beer drinking.”

There will be a live band, door prizes, a raffle for a Molson Canadian beer fridge and a 50/50 draw. If the event falls on a night of the Stanley Cup finals (on Thursday, it was announced that the second game will be on June 4), organizers will be setting up TVs so people can enjoy the game while they enjoy the event.

At the event, 2010 Olympic glasses can be purchased for $2 each.

One hundred per cent of the proceeds from the event goes to the support of local projects to help kids at risk.

Tickets are available in advance for $30 and can be purchased from local Rotary Club members or online at www.tipntaste.com. Tickets at the door are $35. Extra drink tickets are available for $2 each.

ID will be checked. People must be 19 years of age to attend.

Tip ‘N Taste will be held in the Cascades Ballroom at the Cascades Casino/Coast Hotel and Convention Centre, 20395 Fraser Hwy., from 6:30 p.m. until 11 p.m. on Saturday, June 4.
