Vancouver’s biggest celebration of all things meat and beer returns in 2021


The grills stayed cold in 2020 as Vancouver’s popular annual celebration of all things meat and beer, Brewery & The Beast, was sidelined due to the COVID-19 pandemic. But fear not, carnivores: Brewery & The Beast Vancouver is back for 2021.

Taking place near the tail-end of September, the festival that brings together brewers and local chefs and restaurants for a meat-tastic day of eating and drinking will once again fill Concord Pacific Plaza with grill smoke and revelry.

The fully outdoors and 19+ event takes place rain or shine, and your ticket is inclusive of all food and drink, which means no fumbling for cash while you’re balacing a cup of beer and a plate of ribs or chicken. Of course, it’s not all meat; in 2019, the last time the epic event went down, the festival made it a point to feature more locally-sourced seafood and produce. That year, Brewery & the Beast featured a whopping nearly 60 participating vendors and restaurants.
