Second Annual Brewers Plate: The Podcast 1 Comment »

The 2nd Annual Brewers Plate – a local sustainable spring feast celebrating breweries, chefs, and food artisans – took place recently at U of T’s Hart House. The event, which saw the Great Hall packed with beer-loving gastronomes (or was that food-loving beeronomes?) was a resounding success. Beerology’s Mirella Amato served as Mistress of Ceremonies for the event, in which five of the OCB’s member breweries were paired with some of Toronto’s best restaurants.

The six restaurants featured at the event were: La Palette, Veritas, Jamie Kennedy Event Catering, Cowbell, the Gladstone, and Rebel House, while the participating breweries from the OCB were: Mill Street Brewery, Cameron’s Brewing, Wellington County Brewery, Great Lakes Brewing, and Black Oak Brewery. Each members’ beers were paired with mouth-watering gourmet dishes, all made from local ingredients.

You can get all the details – from the list of sponsors (including the Ontario Craft Brewers) to the menus – at Meanwhile, have a listen to the podcast for interviews with the participating brewers.
