The GOODS from TIMBER
Vancouver, BC | All Rye’ld Up is our ‘hopped up’ version of the Canucks & Cask event for November. Join us on November 18th at 6pm when we throw down 4 beers from 4 local breweries, and celebrate all that is rye beer (and one rye whisky) while we watch the Canucks take on the St. Louis Blues.
Doan’s is showing off their rye stout, Vancouver Island Brewing is brewing up a rye IPA, Britannia Brewing taps a rye porter, and Central City casks up a surprise rye ale and is bringing their distillery’s Lohin McKinnon Canada 150 Barley and Rye Lightly Peated Whisky.
It all starts at 6pm with the tapping of the cask and kegs. Puck drops at 7pm.
IT’LL BE ALL RYE’T, ALL RYE’T, ALL RYE’T.

Dedicated locavore chef – Chris Whittaker of Forage – is solidifying the West End as one of Vancouver’s most dynamic foodie neighbourhoods with his new restaurant in the high-ceilinged iconic space next door to Forage on Robson at Jervis.
The new restaurant is called Timber, and the menu reads like a roadmap of Canadian comfort food. Home of the bison burger and deep-fried cheese curds, other daily features include pea meal bacon chops, bannock, elk tourtiere, and fish & chips. Add a brown butter tart for dessert and you’ve had yourself some fine Canadian home cooking.
The design of the room is a nostalgic nod to British Columbia’s rich timber history and the salt of the earth who built this province, one two-by-four at a time.
The 1900 square foot space boasts an 18 seat communal table, bench and window-side seating, and features reclaimed barn board from Glorious Organics Farm in Aldergrove. The space is designed by blacksmith/polymath Dustin Pritchard (check out his behind the scene photos from his workshop on Instagram @blacksmithdustin).
“We have two purposes at Timber – to celebrate Canadian cuisine and to have a lot of fun while we’re at it!” states Chef Chris Whittaker.
If you’re looking for a place to grab a craft beer or a single malt and a mushroom gravy poutine while you curse the hockey refs on TV, Timber is where you want to be.
The first puck dropped in November 2015 and it’s off to a great start welcoming our West End neighbours. Open daily until late.
