Vancouver Craft Beer Week: Biercraft & Phillips

Michelle snagged us tickets to VCBW’s Biercraft x Phillips 5 course dinner/beer pairing and oh my goodness are we ever glad she did!  I won’t do an in-depth write-up of all the pairings (visit Ryan’s blog for more photos and better descriptions), but my favourite pairings would have had to have been (in order) 1. the smoked tomato gazpacho with lobster and chorizo paired with Phillips’ Hoperation IPA (perfect balance – love love LOVEd it, i could have lived in this soup) and 2. the BBQ braised short rib mac & cheese paired with the Phillips Blue Buck (possibly the best Mac & Cheese i’ve ever had – sorry Gramma and Barefoot Contessa)!  We had such a wonderful evening with J, our fortuitous table-mate from Chicago, and we will definitely be back next year!  Thank you Biercraft, Phillips and of course, VCBW!

  1. Oh I heard about this! I wish I had gone, sounds like it was an awesome event =)

    • Next year Tanya! We almost missed it this year, but got the last few tickets to one of the last dinners! It was my first time going to an event and I highly recommend it! Everyone is so nice and just excited about sharing their food and beer!! 🙂
