Brewery & The Beast Vancouver 2013

This past weekend Vancouver was host to what could only be described as one of the BEST food and beverage events the city has ever seen. Brewery & The Beast came to play and hungry Vancouverites devoured every bite. This all-you-can-eat-and-drink carnivores’ dream benefits the BC Hospitality Foundation which is there to help people who work and are involved in the hospitality industry when they fall upon hard times, so it’s a win win for everyone.

Over 900 people took in 35+ of the city’s top chefs and restaurants offering dishes created just for the event – ranging the gamut from whole smoked Memphis hog to Beef Heart Nachos and everything in between. To wash down all the delicious BBQ inspired treats, Phillips Beer provided the beer as well as their new sodas and Left Field Cider had their new apple cider to drink. With the event being an all you can eat and drink afternoon, the vendors really stepped up the creativity level and didn’t just serve up some pulled pork on a bun. For me some of the standout dishes were Vikram Vij’s I Can’t Believe it’s Not Butter Chicken, a Pork Cheek Bao Bun from HouseXGuest and a Lamb Chop Popsicle from Nuba that I happily devoured.

Overall Brewery & The Beast was a complete hit with everyone I talked to and I think it’s going to be a staple of the Vancouver food festival scene from now on. The restaurants provided a ton of food with lines moving really quickly and wait times were virtually non-existent. A big thanks to Two Rivers Meats for supplying a great selection of meats and poultry, Phillips Beer for amazing beer and soda, the Vancouver Urban Winery for the vino offerings, and Left Field Cider for the crisp and refreshing apple cider.
