Brewery & the Beast 2016: Annual meat and beer fest returns in July


Calling all meat lovers: Brewery & the Beast will have Vancouverites all fired up this summer at the popular annual BBQ and beer event. This year, Brewery & the Beast happens on Sunday, July 24, and will once again take place at Concord Pacific’s Lot.

The popular meat-centric event celebrates the best in whole animal cooking, using meat that is raised locally and ethically. Local chefs showcase their talent on the plate with tantalizing samples representing a vast array of meat preparations, including whole animal roasts, charcuterie, classic BBQ, traditional, ethnic, modern, and exotic dishes prepared from an assortment of conventional and rare cuts of protein.

Look for eats from Vancouver spots like Dixie’s BBQ, Maenam, Campagnolo, Bestie, Forage, Torafuku, Wildebeest, Hawksworth, Sai Woo, and many more.

Repping the brewery aspect, the event features Victoria’s Phillips Brewing Company, pouring a diverse selection of their award winning beers for guests to pair with their dishes. Beyond the suds, there will be Left Field Cider and non-alcoholic options as well.

As a fun bonus, live music at this 19+ only event will come from the Electric Timber Co., with special guests. The outdoor event is rain or shine.
