“We are definitely looking forward to the six annual Brewery & The Beast in Vancouver,” says Scott Gurney, Brewery & The Beast event organizer. “We are so proud of how the hospitality industry comes together for this event and especially the chefs who work tirelessly to make their creations a reality. At the end of the day, Brewery & The Beast is about celebrating carefully sourced and responsibly farmed meats that are raised with genuine passion and care. That hasn’t changed but the passion continues to grow.”
