A Fall BC Craft Beer Invasion – Devil’s Elbow’s Taps Are Overrun During BC Craft Beer Month
BC Craft Brewery Fall Tap Takeover at Devil’s Elbow
BC Craft Beer Month is about celebrating all the great beer that is brewed right here in our province. What better way to embrace the local businesses that provide locals with delicious libations than to let them take over the taps at our local pubs and restaurants. The Devil’s Elbow is a local smokehouse-style Ale House on Beatty Street. Being Howe Sound Brewing’s tied house it is no surprise that their focus is craft beer. For a special BC Craft Beer Month Event, the tap-lines were pouring a selection of fall beers from BC breweries. All 20 taps featured the flavours of fall from BC’s best.
The homely feel of the Devil’s Elbow comes from the classic brick interior, rustic wood and for this event, mason-jar serving glasses. Craft beer fans felt well at home in the space as they made their way through the formidable list of beers. Favourites from attendees ranged from the fresh hop beers coming from Steamworks, and Persephone, to the Pumpkin Ales from Howe Sound and Bomber Brewing. For those of more classic taste, a variety of stouts, Weizens, IPAs and a Tripel balanced out the equation of fall flavours.
In addition to the wide array of autumnal beers, the classic BBQ menu of Devil’s Elbow was created with beer pairing in mind. The roasted flavours of brisket, ribs and pulled pork are the perfect compliment to a malty or seasonally spiced ale. Without being a beer pairing dinner, the mix of fall beers with BBQ could not have been planned any better.
The BC brewery takeover was a one-shot deal but don’t fret. The Devil’s Elbow tap lines feature primarily BC breweries on a daily basis with a wide selection of Howe Sound beers pouring. In addition there are a few friends from the rest of Canada and south of the border that make their way into the mix for you to experience.
