Gastown Restaurant Hosts Award-Winning Brewery for Collaborative Party Showcasing Five Unique Beers, Live DJ and Meet-and-Greet with Brasserie Dunham Brewmaster


Craft beer connoisseurs can get an exclusive taste of an award-winning Quebec brewery when Wildebeest welcomes Brasserie Dunham for ‘Brasserie & The Beest’ on Wednesday, July 4 at 6:30 p.m.

Taking place in the restaurant’s ‘Underbelly’ private room, the standup-style mixer will pair bites of signature Wildebeest fare – such as oysters, charcuterie, fried chicken, heirloom tomatoes & burrata, and boar belly – with five kegged and bottle-conditioned Brasserie Dunham beers, including Saison du Pinacle, Oro Zuur Wild Ale, Assemblage Nos. 3 and 9, and ‘Jane Doe’: Assemblage Hors-Série No. 8 sour.

Guests will also have the opportunity to meet-and-greet with Brasserie Dunham brewmaster Eloi Deit, while he guides them through an exclusive selection of unique beers that are unavailable in BC outside of this event.

Brasserie Dunham — a brewery located between Montreal and Sherbrooke that has won multiple gold medals at the Canadian Brewing Awards since it was founded in 2011 — is no stranger to Wildebeest, having visited the Gastown hotspot for a sold-out brewmaster dinner last year. Priding itself on producing beers that offer a departure from the modern American styles that have dominated the North American craft beer scene for the past quarter-century, Brasserie Dunham brews classic-yet-innovative European-styled beers that showcase a range of intricate and complex flavours.

Tickets to Wildebeest’s one-night-only ‘Brasserie & The Beest’ event are available for $39 per person plus tax and gratuity and may be purchased online at https://wildebeest.ca/events.
