Tap & Barrel Celebrates 5 Years – Vancouver

By Mike @mikescraftbeer

In July Tap & Barrel will be celebrating their 5th year anniversary. For the five months leading up to July and their birthday they have decided to collaborate with 5 different local breweries and pair different food with it.

For March they partnered up with Phillips Brewing in Victoria to make the Dazed & Co-Brewed East Coast IPA. The East Coast IPA or New England IPA is sweeping the west right now and for good reason. They showcase the fruit flavour in the hops that are used with a bit lower bitterness bringing new fans to the IPA. The beer looks great for the style and it tastes on point!

To pair with this great collaborative beer the chef has decided to make a Thick Bacon & Blue Cheese Burger. Don't let the blue cheese scare you as this is a great tasting burger with a ton of flavour. The burger has certified Angus beef, thick cut bacon, blue cheese, lettuce, pickled shallots, roasted garlic mayo and balsamic fig jam.

To celebrate the beginning of this collaborative effort Tap & Barrel Olympic village invited a bunch of industry and bloggers out to try the pairing. We got to try out a slider version of the burger with sleeves of the beer. I have to say that both the beer and the burger tasted great and I plan on heading back before the end of the month to have a full sized burger!

Especially if you have not been into the Tap & Barrel recently at any of their locations or if you are just looking for a great beer and burger pairing head over and order right away! You will not regret it as the flavour of both a seriously top notch.
