Biercraft Belgian Beer Showcase tasting guide

If you were lucky enough to have attended Biercraft on Cambie’s Belgian Beer Showcase last night, you were in for a treat.

The packed bistro/pub featured a vegetarian miso poutine prepared with Kronenbourg beer, pulled pork mini sliders, blue cheese stouvré poutine, and mini roasted beet sliders, to wash down with a collection of over 50 Belgian beers!

Biercraft Belgian Beer Showcase-15 Biercraft Belgian Beer Showcase-24 Delirium Tremens pink elephant tap

My favourite pours were La Trappe Quadruppel (trappist) beer, San Diego’s Rayon Vert, a lovely Belgian style pale ale, Delirium Tremens (a golden, strong ale with a pink elephant tap handle) and Palm Speciale, a light amber with a floral and caramel hoppy taste. Having lived in Holland for eight years, I’ve begun to realize how spoiled I was with regard to beer choice!
