Craft beer pioneer Frank Appleton will be visiting Vernon to promote his new memoir, Brewing Revolution: Pioneering the Craft Beer Movement (Harbour Publishing).
A book signing will be held at Bookland (#100 3400-30th Avenue) on Saturday, Nov. 5 from 1 to 3 p.m.
Brewing Revolution ― the inspiring story behind today’s craft beer revolution―is the subject of this lively memoir by Frank Appleton, the English-trained brewmaster who is considered by many to be the father of Canada’s craft-brewing movement.
Appleton, who now lives in Edgewood, chronicles 50 years in the brewing business, from his early years working for one of the major breweries, to his part in establishing the first cottage brewery in Canada, to a forward look at the craft-beer industry in an ever more competitive market.
Appleton has been consultant brewmaster to 20 brewing operations, including consultant work in brewery design, start-up and brewer training.
In 2009, Appleton received the Lifetime Achievement Award for Leadership in Craft Brewing from CAMRA Victoria Chapter.

Appleton’s appearance is made possible in part with the support of the Canada Council of the Arts.
