Summer Heat Inspired Beer Dinner @ Bistro 101

posted on July 15, 2010

Halt your swirl and sniffing, pull in your pinkie and put the stemware away, this summer add to your mix the mouthfeel of a barley pop. Bistro 101® and Pacific Institute of Culinary Arts (PICA) welcome, Canada’s first Certified Cicerone™ with a highfalutin beer inspired dinner.  Wednesday, August 18th, Chester Carey, vanguard of PICA’s Serious Beer Series, brings to radar local and imported brew gems.  Highlighting this beverage’s surprisingly fragile personae is a menu of backbone; beer belly ribs, entrecote steak, fresh halibut and piping-hot churros with chocolate dipping sauce. 

Encouraging a vigorous pour, discussing whether to chill or not to chill, as well as, the controversial flavoured brewskies, this refreshing and effervescent evening is flat out just about the beer. Overseen by Pacific Institute of Culinary Arts, Bistro 101® proudly celebrates our city’s eclectic food scene.
