Britannia Brewmasters Table (Britannia Brewing) – December 6th, 2017

By Mike @mikescraftbeer

On December 6th, 2017 I was able to attend the Britannia Brewmasters Table a brewmasters dinner held at Britannia Steveston. Britannia Steveston is the restaurant portion of Britannia Brewing Company with the brewery residing in a different part of South Richmond.

On the way in we were given a welcome beer of their Adrift Hop Blonde a beer that comes in at 4.7% with an IBU of 25. The beer had a surprising amount of flavour for a blonde and I was pretty darn impressed with it as it is not a style I usually go for. Once everyone had arrived the dinner began.

Course 1
Seared wild harvest scallops
truffled cauliflower & fennel salami
Paired with: Blueberry Garden Ale 4.6% 2 IBU

The beer had a nice blueberry and herbal flavour with a semi sweet finish. The scallop had some sweetness and the salami had a nice mild spice to it. The truffled cauliflower was a nice finish. Both were tasty but this was my least favorite of the pairings.

Course 2
Seafood bisque with yellowfin tuna tartar
Ginger Citrus
Paired with: Sirens chai saison 5.7% 22 IBU

The beer tasted of chai, citrus, saison funk with a semi sweet finish. The tuna was light and buttery with the soup portion being full of mushroom flavour. As weird as it may sound this was an awesome pairing

Course 3
Freerun rossdown turkey renderloin
white bean, edamama & preserved cranverries
Paired with 1: Riptide IPA 6.2% 58 IBU
Paired with 2: Belgian IPA 7.2% 60 IBU

The Riptide IPA had some juicy hops that bring in some tropical fruit and citrus with some low bitterness and herbal hops. The Belgian IPA tastes of Belgian yeast, bubblegum, sweetness and low bitterness. The turkey was fantastic with some nice earthy veggies on the side. The Riptide IPA seemed to pair up quite well with this dish.

Course 4
Dark belgian chocolate covered chous a la creme
chai saison cream
Paird with 1: Forty fathoms imperial spiced porter 7.7% 30 IBU
Paired with 2: Baileys chocolate porter (Cask) 5.5% 28 IBU

Britannia Brewmasters Table (Britannia Brewing) – December 6th, 2017

The Forty fathoms imperial spiced porter had a good roasted malt flavour with chocolate, earth and rum. The Baileys chocolate porter tasted of chocolate, baileys with sweetness in the finish. The cask was really tasty. The chocolate pastry was really enjoyable and both beers paired really well together.

This was one really tasty dinner and I will have to try and make it out for another one in the future. From my understanding they hold these dinners on the first Wednesday of every Month. I reccomend checking one out soon.
