Has the craft beer revolution left you feeling out of the loop? Tired of trying to distinguish a citra hop from a centennial?

East Vancouver’s Sunday Cider offers an alternative to the craft beer revolution that’s overtaken the city. Since 2015, Sunday Cider has been making cider out of B.C. apples, offering seasonal growler fills.
