Event organizer Scott Gurney succinctly summarizes Brewery & The Beast as a “festival of meat, beer and music.”

Taking place this Sunday in Vancouver before releasing in Victoria on September 25, the multi-city event features BC brewers, chefs, food producers and musicians sharing their appreciation for meat, beer and music.

“It’s a unique culinary event,” says Gurney.

While Gurney admits the food-and-beer event is undoubtedly a “meat-lover’s paradise,” he says there are a few offerings for those who prefer something a little different.

“There are some sneaky offerings that aren’t 100 percent meat-focused,” Gurney says. “Some chefs will create dishes with seafood, freshwater fish and even a few vegetarian offerings may pop up from time to time.

“But all in all, this event is definitely for the carnivores!”

According to a press release, more than 60 local chefs will be in attendance this year, including Top Chef Canada’s runner-up Kym Nguyen, Popina Canteen’s Robert Belcham, and Kelowna’s “edible storyteller” Aman Dosanj. Restaurant teams like Juke Fried Kitchen, Boulevard Kitchen & Oyster Bar, and Osterio Savio Volpe will also serve up some meaty bites.

Three local breweries will be featured – Red Truck, Driftwood and Vancouver Island Brewing – along with a variety of cocktails, wines and ciders.

The all-inclusive ticket price pays for an “all-you-can-enjoy” event with access to all food and drink samples, as well as live music and more. Festival organizers say a portion of the proceeds from all ticket sales will be donated to Chefs’ Table Society of BC, a chef across the province.
