Japanese / Italian Beer Dinner at Pumphouse

Posted on: May 24th, 2013 by camilla

photo4Master Sushi Chef. Italian Chef. Craft Beer. Birthday Celebration. Sounds like a winning combo to me. We attended this collaboration dinner to experience this gem at the Pumphouse Pub in Richmond, who host a monthly long table dinner. This month, they went off the rails to have Sushi Master Shunji Yamamoto and Executive Chef Daniela Iaci collaborate to create a meal that blended these two unique cultures and culinary expertise. It was evident that a lot of planning went into the menu and as both chefs are busy at their day jobs, Daniela is at the Pumphouse Pub (and is currently creating a brand new menu) and Shunji is the sushi master at Kitanoya GUU in Richmond. If you really want to experience a treat, go to GUU and ask Master Yamamoto create dishes for you rather than eating off the menu. This experience will be more expensive than the regular menu, but you won’t regret it. Read More HERE

 

Hello Vancity – Beer Cocktails Dinner

Posted on: May 8th, 2013 by camilla

beer2_jpg_pagespeed_ce_2LzovDIJyQI love Hop & Vine. It’s my local, they have a great chef, and an amazing craft beer selection. Normally you can find me there wednesday nights for cheap wings, or sundays for cheap king crab legs. They also have monthly LTS, which feature 5-6 drinks paired with chef inspired dishes. I’ve attended beer & wine long table series in the past at Hop & Vine, but this was my first time doing a beer cocktail one. Normally, I don’t put anything else in my beer other than a lime (or maybe a margarita if I’m having a bull dog), but I was so curious to see how beer cocktails would taste. Read More HERE

Beer Cocktails Long Table Dinner

Posted on: April 16th, 2013 by camilla

At the relatively quiet intersection of Blundell & No. 2 Road in Richmond, BC is a pub that serves up an amazing craft beer selection. Really, it’s a pretty cool place to be in as it’s got actual personable history, not some cookie cutter pub layout. Of course, their beer selection is helped as they’ve got a working relationship with Beerthirst. I was invited out to one of their longtable dinners, usually they are just a pour of beer paired with a dish, but this time it was beer cocktails. Read More Here

 

Cocktail Anyone? Craft Beer Cocktails That Is

Posted on: April 8th, 2013 by camilla
What the hell is a beer cocktail you say? You may have noticed them recently on some bar/restaurant menus but haven’t tried them. I was in the same boat until Friday night. Pumphouse Pub had their monthly craft beer longtable dinner with
Beerthirst beers and I was intrigued to try the cocktails. Chef Daniela Iaci never fails to impress with her food pairings so spending $40 for a five course meal paired with cocktails created by Mike Summers was a no-brainer. Read more HERE

Tourism Burnaby: The Brewmasters Dinner

Posted on: November 2nd, 2012 by camilla

When Micah Noble decided to completely change his friendly neighbourhood pub, “The Stone Throw” five years ago, he was met with some negativity. “We were told we would be bankrupt within six months”, says Noble.” Why all the negativity? Because Noble was giving his pub a facelift, changing the name to the “Hop and Vine” and completely changing his menu from regular every day beer to “Craft Brews.” Read More from Tourism Burnaby HERE

Hop-love.  Small-batch.  Mastery of micro-brew.  Hold onto your steins everyone, it’s BC Craft Beer Month! I celebrated last night at The Pumphouse Pub with Chris, Jillian, and Stephen – three of my most beer-devoted friends.

Beerthirst July Long Table

Posted on: August 8th, 2012 by camilla
If you’re not familiar with the Pumphouse Pub
on Blundell Road in Richmond, I believe they have the largest
number of taps in Richmond (24 taps), most of which are craft beer.
They also maintain an extensive bottle list and update both listsweeklyto add all the new goodies that come in.
They have great pub food along with a few specialty items like the butter chicken, perogies and deep sea pesto linguine.
The portions are all generous, including the appetizers. Unless your name is Len, you won’t be able to crush a plate of nachos on your own.
