These grey days of winter have us dreaming of hot summer fun. Brewery & the Beast makes those dreams come true by announcing its return for an even better year of meat, drinks and sizzle — to Vancouver on June 2, Calgary on August 25, and Vancouver Island on September 22. Tickets go on sale soon.
Western Canada’s favourite outdoor culinary event, Brewery & the Beast features top-quality meat cooked in a range of styles, from expertly grilled to slow-roasted, braised or smoked, dished out by some of the most acclaimed restaurants and chefs in each city, all paired with chilled local brews, ciders, wine, cocktails and refreshing zero-proof options, and entertainment throughout the day. And this year, organizers are kicking it up a notch with more food from chefs, more drink options, and fewer crowds.
The 2024 event marks a return to the “All You Can Enjoy” format for both food and drinks, with an increased number of food offerings, more beverages and extra dessert options, as well as a smaller crowd for a more intimate atmosphere. Full drink service will run from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m., and after hearing from last year’s attendees that the sizzle should be kept to the food, organizers are also adding more shade to the seating area.
Returning once again as a key sponsor for this year’s Brewery & the Beast is Two Rivers Meats. Additional sponsorship and partnership opportunities are available, as well as spots for participating restaurants and beverage producers. Reach out to breweryandthebeast.com/contact to learn more about how to participate in this year’s event.
The 2024 event steps up its game even more with the following features:
- Fewer tickets being sold, meaning fewer people and smaller crowds
- More shade and seating areas
- More food stations and a greater number of portions per station
- More beverage options including a wider selection of non-alcoholic options
- A return to the “All You Can Enjoy” format for both food and beverage
