Brewery & The Beast
Brewery & The Beast Celebrates Sourcing Meat Locally
There will be plenty of locally-sourced pork at this year’s Brewery & The Beast, when more than 45 of Vancouver and Whistler’s top restaurants get grilling on Sunday, July 24, 2016. This meat-centric festival sees ticket holders roaming Concord Pacific Place, and filling up on barbecue and sips of Phillips Brewing Company’s beer from their legendary 35-tap “Gypsy” wagon; cider from BC’s Left Field Cider Co; and local wines from Mission Hill Family Estate Winery.
Brewery & The Beast’s celebration focuses on eating and drinking locally and most meat is supplied by Two Rivers Specialty Meats, who source the highest quality product from farmers and producers in B.C. and Alberta.
“This year, Brewery & The Beast is going to be better than ever,” says Scott Gurney, Brewery & The Beast event organizer. “From whole animal roasts, classic barbecue and charcuterie, to modern cuisine with traditional and exotic interpretations, created with a variety of proteins, there is definitely something for every palate. Our goal, at the end of the day, is to educate people about sourcing and consuming responsibly farmed meats that are raised with genuine care and passion. It is going to be a great Sunday afternoon spent enjoying the harvest of local producers and the creativity of our community’s talented chefs.”
Returning restaurants include Whistler’s Araxi Restaurant, Boulevard Kitchen & Oyster Bar, Hawksworth Restaurant, Homer St. Cafe and Bar, Maenam, Memphis Blues Barbeque House, Torafuku, West Restaurant + Bar, and Wildebeest. Some of the new restaurants this year include Ask for Luigi, Burdock & Co., Nightingale, Vancouver Magazine’s 2016 Best New Restaurant of the Year Royal Dinette, and Savio Volpe.
Tickets to Brewery & The Beast were $99.75 , but are sold now sold out, but we’ve got the pictures from 2014 up, and sorry to make you sorry you didn’t act sooner. We are hoping you’ll get some inspiration for a pork-filled meal though, maybe some BBQ this weekend?
