Sierra Nevada Brew Pub Keg Fest – Butcher & Bullock Vancouver


The Butcher & Bullock pub in Vancouver has a beer club that does events weekly with one event a month being a much larger Keg Fest event like the evening that I attended on November 19th, 2015.  These biger events fall closer to the last Thursday of the month.

ButcherBullockBC-11

This Keg Fest found TruCraft and Sierra Nevada Brewing bring in 4 regularly listed beers in BC and also 4 usually Brew Pub exclusives.  The ticket to the open event cost $15 and got you 8 tickets to try 1 – 4oz sample of all 8 beers.  If you wanted to have more of any one beer it was $2.5 for 4oz or $7 for 14oz.  The beers on sample were as follows:  Outside Lands Saison, Nooner Pilsner, Torpedo Extra IPA, Porter, Hop Hunter IPA, Pale Ale, Stout and Close Call Kolsch.  They also had some great looking beef brisket sandwiches on sale.

This was a great little event with lots of good beer on offer and a great group of people sharing in the experience.  If you are interested in their beer club make sure to ask your server next time you stop in for food and beer.  I know I will be keeping you eyes peeled for more events like this one.

Saison – Hilliards Beer


O’hare’s Beer Club June 2013 Box

From Seattle Washington’s Hilliards Beer comes their “Saison” .  The beer pours a cloudy golden colour with a white head.  The aroma consists of apple, champagne, fruit, yeast and some pepper.  The flavour is of apples, champagne, fruit, spices, yeast and pepper.  The alcohol content comes in at 6.6% and the IBU is 20.  This is a very nice Saison with a very different flavour than any other I have had.  IT even comes in cans which is very different too!

Commercial Description:  No cork or wire cage here. We’re getting back to the spirit of a Saison as a beer you can drink every day, not just special occasions. Refreshing and complex, the high fermentation temperature used with the Belgian yeast strain allows it to add its unique characteristics to the flavor without the addition of spices. Saisons are a great style that can be appreciated by both the informed and informal beer drinker.

Food Pairing according to O’hare’s Beer Club notes are as follows: Bouillabaisse, farmhouse cheeses
