New Year, New Beers social #3 – Abandoned Rail Brewing Where: 1220 Davenport Ave, Penticton, BC V2A 8V1 When: THURSDAY, 24 MARCH 2022 FROM 5:30-7:30 pm
Our third social of 2022 gives us early access and a sneak peek at Abandoned Rail Brewing before they open to the public! As the 8th brewery in Penticton, they are the newest addition to the amazing beer scene here.
Meet the owner, Scott, and some of their team. This will be a great chance to hear about their brewery, the beers and to ask questions. You will have the opportunity to try their beers – simply pay for your own beers / flights. CAMRA SO will also be providing some charcuterie to snack on while sharing tasty beers and company!
Abandoned Rail makes German-style beers with the majority using BC ingredients, including their very own estate-grown barley! You can already find their packaged product for purchase at local liquor stores.
Due to capacity limits, there are a maximum of 30 seats available to this event, so a free Eventbrite ticket will be needed (get them here). Only CAMRA members in good standing will be eligible for this early access event. Sorry, no guests for this one, this is a member exclusive event. If your membership has lapsed, please renew before reserving a ticket for this event.
All current event details can be found here at CAMRA SO’s facebook events page. COVID restrictions apply, including vaccine passport with ID checks as per the current PHO requirements.
Here are some other craft beer events being held in and around our community …

CAMRA BC AGM
We hope you can join us for the virtual CAMRA BC AGM this coming Tuesday, March 15, 2022, at 7:30 pm via Zoom. All CAMRA BC members “in good standing” only (unexpired membership as of March 15, 2022) are welcome to attend.
We have some of our local CAMRA SO members standing for election to the provincial-level CAMRA BC executive, so it’s further incentive to attend and show them your support:
– Stuart Knott, CAMRA BC Vice President
– Aldo Castagna, CAMRA BC Treasurer
– Eric Harding, CAMRA BC Communications Director
We are always looking for more volunteers to help. If you don’t have time to commit to being an executive member, please consider being an event volunteer. Not only will you have a ton of fun, but there is a high likelihood of beer-related perks involved. Contact Kim if you are interested in being on our volunteer list.
Welcome to the South Okanagan branch of the Campaign for Real Ale, an independent, volunteer-run consumer organization dedicated to supporting the brewing of traditional styles of beer in the traditional manner, using traditional ingredients.
