Get ready to get your carnivore on!
Brewery and the Beast is an event that every Vancouverite should experience at least once. On July 24th, I participated in my first Brewery and the Beast meat festival and man was I so stuffed. The festival featured many local restaurants which offered premium samplings of their dishes made by talented Chefs. There were many samples of barbecued meats and the drinks offered were a variety of craft beer from Phillips Brewing Company. Phillips Brewing Company was the main vendor of craft beer at all three events. There were a few other tents that offered their craft beers as well.
Which cities are these hosted in?
Only 3 lucky cities in Canada have Brewery and the Beast and they are Victoria, Vancouver and Calgary. Each event features local vendors and restaurants, so I guess the sampling experience may differ a little from each city. Live music was provided by the Electric Timber Company during the event.
Did I mention that each ticket grants you access to all the samples of beer and food on site?
Eat and drink until you are satiated, but don’t fall into a “Food Coma”. The portions are more than generous and suppose to floor you if you eat too fast.
This event was not just about the unlimited food and drink samples that you can consume. I’ll let Brewery and the Beast explain the real purpose behind this event. Check out the link below.
