FRANK APPLETON: BREWER. WRITER. GENTLE MAN.

A toast is raised in honour of a multifaceted, talented, opinionated, gentle man: Mr. Frank Millington Appleton, who passed on April 25th at the age of 80.

We know that Frank, working alongside John Mitchell, was Canada’s founding craft brewer. Additionally, as a publication that has highlighted many very good writers including those noted above, we tip our cap to Frank for the combination of writing and brewing skills that made him a true dual threat, and ultimately a pioneer of the BC commercial brewing, homebrewing, and beer appreciation communities.
