Beer story

One day back in 1993, Chris Turton drove 590 kilometers from Kelowna to Calgary, to show Ed McNally some apples.

As soon as he surveyed the apples, Ed saw the possibilities. Chris grows apples you don’t see in the supermarket. The fragrant, sweet and succulent European varieties grown in Chris Turton’s orchards are fine examples of classic English-style cider apples. At the end of that meeting Ed and Chris shook hands. A year later, Big Rock’s first cider was in the keg.

The real difference in this recipe is the apples themselves; Bulmers, Norman, Belle de Boskoop and Bramley. All are grown exclusively in the Okanagan and exclusively for Big Rock.
