Swinefest at Hog Shack with BeerThirst and Rogue Brewing

Comments 99 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Steveston’s own Hog Shack Cook House is celebrating its 2nd anniversary with a big birthday bash called Swinefest. With the partnership of BeerThirst and Oregon’s Rogue Brewing, they’re putting together a multi-course barbecue and beer feast of epic proportions.

Hog Shack Cook House

Swinefest will feature a 5-course dinner with each course paired with Rogue’s beers, from Maple Bacon Ale to Brutal Bitter IPA. The event takes place on Sunday, November 4, 2012 at 4:00pm at Hog Shack in Steveston (160 – 3900 Bayview Street, Richmond).

Tickets are available online for $65 (HST and tip included). Admission includes reception beer and dinner with beer pairing. Additional beer tokens will be available for purchase at a special price of $5 per token or $20 for 5 tokens. CAMRA members can purchase tickets for $55. BeerThirst will be there giving out prizes as well.

To promote Swinefest, and the anniversary of one of our favourite local barbecue joints, I have $50 in gift certificates to give away. They can’t be used to purchase Swinefest tickets but you can use them to enjoy all the corn bread, ribs, brisket, and Hog Shack pulled pork they can buy at your leisure any other day. Here’s how you can enter to win:

  • Leave a comment on this post (1 entry)
  • Post the following on Twitter (1 entry)
    • RT to enter to win $50 for @HogShackCA from @Miss604 http://ow.ly/eT247

      I will draw one winner at random from all entries next Wednesday, November 7, 2012 at 12:00pm. Must be 19+ to attend Swinefest on November 4th. Please enjoy responsibly and plan a safe trip home.

      Update The winner is @vanvan604!
