SunRype launches new premium craft cider

Sun-Rype is taking a page out of its own rich history book with the launch of a new Premium Craft Apple Cider that harkens back to the 1950s, when the iconic BC brand introduced Canada's first hard cider.

The first-ever BC Bacon & Cider Festival sells out

The first-ever BC Bacon & Cider Festival is a showcase for some of the Okanagan Valley’s greatest gifts:  great-tasting apples and pears, creative cider crafting, and inspired food pairings, all taking place within the walls of Kelowna’s historic apple-processing facility, The Laurel Packinghouse. The event set for Friday, April 28 has sold out. Some of BC’s very-best craft cideries pouring samples of their newest, tastiest ciders. Pair that with incredible bacon-inspired dishes prepared and served by the Okanagan College Culinary Arts students. Arguably our favorite message in a bottle! Looking forward to sipping on Faustino Dry Apple Cider at @bcbaconciderfest !...
