This month we are exceptionally excited to have Tariq Ahmed join us from Revel Cider talk to us about cider brewing! His presentation will focus on Revel Cider, their cider brewing philosophies and a guided tasting of two of their ciders. Please see details on how to get their cider below!

As with any conference call, please mute your microphone if you aren't speaking, this really helps cut down on background noise. During Q&A segments we will make use of the "Raise Hand" feature.

Presentation: Cider Brewing and Guided Tasting with Revel Cider!

Tariq studied Plant Science at the University of Guelph and learned to ferment while living on an organic farm in Copetown, ON. In his time on the farm he fermented everything from mulberries to carrots, and fell in love with wild fermentation from the start. Revel started in 2014 as Tariq's solo passion project, and by 2022 the Revel team has grown to seven people strong — with over 1000 cases of Revel bottles and cans shipped to discerning drinkers every month. Tariq has received a Top 30 under 30 award from the Ontario Hostelry Institute for his work building Revel Cider.

Part of this presentation will include a guided tasting of two of Revel's offerings:

Make sure you get your cans before the presentation! Revel offers a few shipping options (including free next day shipping to Toronto "core" for orders over $50!), so make sure you review their shipping options ahead of time.

Style Of The Month:
