Let's dine! 🔸
Taste a selection of Chef Sol's featured creations - he's crafted a three-course menu for you to enjoy until Feb. 4th:
Dark Ale Soup • smoked cheese
Half a Hen • saanich mash, buttermilk slaw (pair with witbier)
Amber Ale Ice Cream • chocolate cookie sandwich
We're looking forward to @caf@caffe_fantastico's selection of tasty cheeses at our masterclass on the history of dark beers tomorrow. The class is sold out, but it doesn't mean you can't head there anytime to relish in their quality offerings. #cascadiaquadra 📷: @caffe_fantastico
You all need to get to @swansvictoria and try their New England IPA. This beer is a collaboration between Swans and @whitesailsbrewing out of Nanaimo and is one of the best versions of this style that we've had. Super balanced and juicy AF!! We could drink this all day!
Nothing like a Dawn Patrol coffee Porter @tofinobrewco first thing on a glorious morning (or in front of a painting of a glorious morning) lol-P @3dgpod
Seaport Vanilla Stout in bombers is readily available at Clive’s Classic Lounge, perfect for any occasion! Great for sharing, or pairing with a fancy, delicious cocktail! 🍻🍸
Now pouring: Baltic Porter. 👅This bad boy is rich and warm like an Imperial Stout but favours smoothness and complexity – think cocoa, dried fruits and molasses. 👌 Pop in for a pint and/or purchase a bomber to enjoy at home - available ‘til quantities run out.
Today, the team went on an epic reconnaissance mission out to beautiful Sooke, BC!! West Coast Brewery Tours will be doing a 'Sooke Beer Run' on March 10th during Victoria Beer Week so get your tickets, otherwise you'll miss out on an amazing experience. First stop on this roadtrip was the, always amazing, Sooke Oceanside Brewery for a flight and a chat with Greg! That Springboard IPA, we could drink all day!! Next up we checked out the awesome new facility and beautiful tasting room at Sooke Brewing Co. and had a chance to taste a flight of their brews and tour the brewery with Yari. These guys definitely have a European influence with their multiple Belgian offerings. And finally we headed out just off Otter Point Road and were completely surprised by the beer being brewed at the unassuming and small Bad Dog Brewing. Our tasting and chat with John & Rose did not disappoint! You don't want to miss the opportunity to check out these awesome producers, so join us during Victoria Beer Week or sign up for our weekly Sooke Beer Run starting in March!! @sookebrew@sookebrewing@baddogbrewingco@vicbeerweek

Find their “Mainstays” at #CascadiaQuadra, #CascadiaLangford and #CascadiaUptown.
Be "still" my drunken beating heart!! (See what I did there?) Our good brewery friends seem to like to 'dabble ' in a little spirits when they're not brewing up exceptional craft beer.
