Scott Gurney – Brewery & The Beast
Check out our interview withÂ Scott Gurney,Â Event Coordinator and Creator ofÂ BreweryÂ & TheÂ Beast
The original concept was simple: a large-scale meat-themed event held in the backyard at The Phillips Brewery,Â featuringÂ well-known chefs skewering, grilling, and carving their creations for enthusiastic guests. â€œOverall it was a huge success and it inspired us to bring a fun, unique, and educational event to other markets,â€ says Scott Gurney, Event Coordinator and Creator of Brewery & The Beast. â€œWe are excited to introduce Vancouver to the concept and showcase local and regional farms through the talent of Vancouverâ€™s top chefs.â€
Over 30 restaurants and chefs will be participating in the Vancouver event includingÂ Forage, Hawksworth, Maenam, West,Â andÂ Wildebeest. The award-winning Phillips Brewing Company will be on-location to dispense a premium selection of their signature brews from a one-of-a-kind â€œGypsyâ€ wagon. Other libations will include wine on tap from the Vancouver Urban Winery, Left Field Cider, Phillips homemade sodas, and traditional Iced Tea. All will be fit to pair with the themed offerings for the day including;Â whole pig roasts, classic BBQ, charcuterie, culturally inspired creations, and experimental meat concoctions for the more adventurous carnivores.
Proudly supported by Two Rivers Specialty Meats and The Phillips Brewing Company, Brewery & The Beast focuses on food education and promotion of local farms and businesses. All proteins used by the chefs are of the highest quality: only hormone and antibiotic-free, ethically raised meats from British Columbia and Northern Alberta will be served. Brewery & The Beast is proud to be working with The BC Hospitality Foundation, donating partial proceeds to benefit its mission to provide financial assistance to the industryâ€™s ill or injured workers.
