Vancouver, BC | Broad Skills, a local start up in Vancouver which aims to teach practical skills and knowledge to women, has announced an upcoming class in partnership with The Cascade Room, Driftwood Brewery and Vancouver Craft Beer Week. The class, titled “Beers and Bites” will be held on October 19th 2011 at 6:30pm at the Cascade Room at 2616 Main St. in Vancouver, BC, and is open to women only. Tickets are currently available at a discounted early bird price of $20 (including HST) until October 12th, 2011. Regular price tickets will be available at $23. All tickets can be purchased at www.broadskills.ca.

The class will be taught by Ian McKay from Driftwood Brewery and Leah Heneghan from Vancouver Craft Beer Week. In class, the processes of brewing and tasting various beers will be discussed, as well as sampling five of Driftwood’s beers. The Cascade Room will also be offering appetizer style food pairings based on the beers selected by Driftwood.

The class is open to women only, with the intention to have local experts share knowledge and skills with women, in a fun and non-intimidating environment. This class on beer, as well as future Broad Skills classes, will focus on topics that are not frequently taught elsewhere.

About Broad Skills

Like most of us, you’ve probably had a moment in your life where you’ve said, “I wish I knew how to ___”, or “I wish I knew more about ___”. We’ve started Broad Skills to help fill in those blanks, by creating a variety of ladies-only classes that will teach you practical skills you may not have had a chance to learn yet. Want to learn how to change a flat tire? How stocks and bonds work? Play poker? Created by two fun, local ladies, every class is designed to be informative as well as entertaining, so the next time you need to know how to fix a leaky faucet or what a good Scotch tastes like, you already do.

The Cascade Room was created as a simple nod to the British Pub. Chef Travis Williams offers a menu with straightforward and honest food at good value.

Wholesome, quality ingredients are featured: from wild seafood products that follow the Ocean Wise mandate, to “in house” pizza doughs and al dente pasta, we strive to purchase our products from BC based suppliers, in particular from the Mount Pleasant area, continuing our commitment to the neighbourhood. The incredibly popular daily “meat and potato” specials sell out fast, so come early!

The Cascade Room features an aggressive cocktail program by Nick Devine, steeped in tradition rather than trend. Having worked in Vancouver, San Francisco and London (including a stint in Oxford with Cascade co-owner Nigel Pike), Nick’s philosophy can be summed up as follows: “Whatever you desire, whether it’s a rickey, a daisy,  a julep, a sling, a sour, a flip, a toddy or a nog…we’ll endeavour to make it”. Additionally, there are several options on tap, including pub-standard Guinness and our own Cascade Lager. The wine list is varied and affordable, serving a fine complement to Chef Williams’ offerings.

Local design and branding firm Evoke International created an ambience reminiscent of the British Pub, but with a modern twist.
