The Brewery and the Beast Meat Festival 2013

The Brewery and the Beast Meat Festival 2013

Whenever an event of such epic proportions like this suddenly springs up for the first time it’s always like, why the hell did you take so long to finally enrich our lives? The first annual Festival of Meat sounded like a good idea 10-years ago, how is this only now materializing? Either way, here we are in 2013 getting ready to enjoy Vancouver’s Brewery & The Beast at Concord Pacific Place this Sunday, July 16.

“Our regions finest chefs demonstrate their skill and passion for meat through a wide variety of inspired creations. Whole pig & lamb roasts, house-made sausage, charcuterie, smoked meats, ethnic-inspired dishes, classic BBQ, and other full-flavored exotic foods will be featured at Brewery & The Beast.”

Over 30 restaurants and chefs are participating in the festival including Forage, West, Hawksworth, Wildebeest, Fable Kitchen, and Edible Canada. In addition to the all-you-can-eat meat, the award-winning Phillips Brewing Company is also on location for all-you-can-drink beer. There are also wine provided by the Vancouver Urban Winery, Left Field Cider and Phillips sodas. Meat and beer? Forever take all my money.

Even though the festival is more than a month away make sure to get your tickets in advance because it is expected to sell out. It's a meat festival afterall.
