The GOODS from Wildebeest
Vancouver, BC | In its latest instalment in a series of Brewmaster Dinners, Gastown’s Wildebeest is teaming up with award-winning brewery Brasserie Dunham on March 28th for an evening of delicious beer and food pairings. Drawing inspiration from classic European brewing techniques and departing from the conventional American style, brews by Quebec’s Brasserie Dunham will complement five exceptional courses by Chef Alessandro Vianello. Guests will meet and drink with Brewmaster Eloi Deit, who will guide them through a selection of unique beers, none of which are available in British Columbia outside of this exclusive event.
Five protein-forward courses from Executive Chef Alessandro Vianello will enhance the complex flavours of Brasserie Dunham’s beers. Highlights will include Québecois-inspired plates like chicken liver parfait with foie gras, lemon & honey marmalade, wild spring onion, zinfandel jelly, and fennel pollen, paired with Assemblage No. 1 Pale Ale/Propolis; pheasant roulade with crushed peas & mint, roasted wild mushrooms, pickled mustard, and black garlic oil, paired with Brasserie Dunham Saison du Pinacle Réserve; and Grilled Angus Flat Iron with Texas barbecue rub, bone marrow croquette, spruce salt, parsley root purée, and salt-baked potatoes, accompanied by Brasserie Dunham Cyclope Alpha IPA.
Guests are encouraged to act quickly to reserve a seat. Tickets are $75 per person, tax and gratuity included. To reserve, please purchase via the website: www.wildebeest.ca.
The Québec brewery Brasserie Dunham was founded in 2011, and is proud to craft reinvented variations of beers rooted in European traditional methods.
