It’s the third annual Brewery and the Beast – Vancouver Edition!!!
On Sunday, July 26th Vancouver and Whistler’s top chefs fired-up their grills and sharpened their knives for the summer’s meatiest event, Brewery and the Beast. More than 40 of Vancouver’s most-lauded and award-winning chefs will gather at the outdoor venue to showcase the finest meat inspired cuisine. Guests enjoyed an exciting selection of whole animal roasts, charcuterie, classic BBQ, ethnic, traditional, modern, and exotic dishes prepared from an assortment of conventional and rare cuts of protein.
Guests cast their eyes on the legendary Phillips Brewing Company 35-tap “Gypsy” wagon that will be tapped-up and offering a high-quality selection of craft brews to pair with the chefs creations.
Also available to thirsty carnivores was the cider from the prized Left Field Cider Co. and premium wines from Mission Hill Family Estate Winery, as well as non-alcoholic options, such as Phillips homemade sodas, specialty coffees, and refreshing iced teas.
Brewery & The Beast strives to strengthen the connection between the consumer and provider, and aims to highlight the importance of ethical farming practices in the local region. Founding sponsor, Two Rivers Specialty Meats, supplies participants with the majority of protein for the event and sources only the highest quality meat from farmers and producers in BC and Alberta.
From the creators of Culinaire, Victoria’s Premier Food Tasting Experience, Brewery & The Beast is a meat-centric event focusing on education and promotion of local farms and ethically raised meat, while highlighting preparations by local chefs. 17 Black Events, the masterminds behind some of the most celebrated food events in British Columbia, are proud to share their passion for food with others. Showcasing the talents of chefs from some of the top restaurants in the province, Brewery & The Beast is meat like you’ve never tasted it before. www.breweryandthebeast.com
