Howe Sound Brewmaster’s Dinner at Central Bistro

Comments 4 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Central Bistro is quickly becoming a favourite neighbourhood watering hole in the West End so when one of our most-loved breweries, Howe Sound, invited us to the brewmaster’s dinner there last night, we were happy to accept.

    I’ve only been there for special events so they’ve been very attentive.

    Speaking of the local beer scene…this man knows his stuff

    I just wish I drank more beer, but I’m a wine gal to hear.
