With a focus on ethical, sustainable and natural farming practices and showcasing talented chefs, renowned restaurants and the very best of BC’s food and beverage scene, Brewery & The Beast provides guests with an all-you-can-enjoy, food-and-drink feast for the senses featuring a variety of dishes and preparations, from barbecue and smoked to grilled and slow-cooked, along with beer, wine, cider and spirits.

Partial proceeds from ticket sales for both of this year’s events will be donated to the Chefs’ Table Society of BC, which — in keeping with the core goal of Brewery & The Beast itself — aims to inspire, nurture and showcase chefs, producers and the local food industry in BC.

New features have also been added for both all-inclusive grazing events, including reduced guest capacities for a more boutique, less crowded experience; upgraded washroom facilities; and new beverage partners like Island Life Hard Sparkling Water, Tito’s Vodka, Muddlers Craft Cocktails, Discovery Coffee and Sparkmouth Non-Alcoholic Beverages. 

Returning Vancouver restaurants and purveyors to date include popular fixtures such as Boulevard Kitchen & Oyster Bar, Fable Diner, Juke Fried Chicken, Nightingale, PiDGiN Restaurant, Torafuku, Two Rivers Specialty Meats, La Mezcaleria, Paella Guys and Whole Foods Market, while new additions include: giovane bacaro, Miantiao, Honey Salt, Fanny Bay Oysters, Straight & Marrow, Cibo Trattoria, Bread & Butter Cafe, Osteria Savio Volpe and Saha Eatery.

In Victoria, returning restaurants and purveyors to date include fan favourites like Aura Waterfront Restaurant + Patio, Bin 4 Burger Lounge, Dumpling Drop, Lil’ Ronnie’s Beachside BBQ, Nowhere *A Restaurant, Oak Bay Beach Hotel, The Ainslie, The Whole Beast, Two Rivers Specialty Meats, Whole Foods Market, Wind Cries Mary and Wolf In The Fog, while new participants include: Bartholomew’s, Farm’s Gate Foods + Catering, Finest at Sea, Justos Craft Dips, Refire Kitchen, RockCoast Confections, The Lakehouse at Shawnigan and Wildflower Bakeshop and Cafe.

A full list of participants can be viewed online with new additions being made as event dates approach.

Brewery & The Beast’s music program has also always been a key accompaniment for the meat-centric celebration. Gurney remains committed to providing a showcase for the live arts at both events, with The Electric Timber Company — which has been a fixture at Brewery & The Beast since 2012 providing beats to pair with the beasts and brews, along with special guest performers from both cities.

Since its inception in 2012, Brewery & The Beast has donated more than $130,000 to organizations that work to grow the Canadian culinary industry such as the Chefs’ Table Society of BC; the BC Hospitality Foundation; Southern Alberta Institute of Technology; Hawksworth Young Chef ScholarshipWomen Chefs & Restaurateurs; and the Island Chefs Collaborative.
