What’s on the Grill at Abbotsford’s BeerBBQ

July 16th is your chance to see the hops blooming on the vine, tour the hop farm, and celebrate two great pairings, Beer and BBQ, and we’ve got the inside scoop of the local pork being thrown on that grill. Held at BC Hop Co’s Kinloch Farm on 1905 Cole Road, Abbotsford, BC, this event pairs Pit Masters and BBQ with BC’s Craft Beer.


Brian from Misko from House of Q has two pork dishes that will be on the roster.  The first will be the award winning championship-style pulled pork, served with chili-spiced, smoked saltine cracker and a tangy BBQ sauce.  Howe Sound Brewing has paired their newly released Kalamansi Citrus Blonde Ale with this delectable delight and the combination of crunch, smoke, spice, sweetness, juiciness and a touch of tangy will keep eaters wanting more.

The second dish is bacon-wrapped, Bratwurst sausages that will be seasoned with House of Q House Rub, smoked and then glazed with our classic Rock’n Red BBQ Sauce; a Nut Brown Ale will be served alongside to add another layer of goodness to this dish.
