Who's slinging the best chowder with the best local beer pairing in Gastown? You'll be the judge of that at next month's Chowder Smackdown.
Going down at The Portside Pub on February 8, the Chowder Smackdown finds four Gastown eateries paired with local breweries and tasked with creating a tastebud-thrilling chowder and beer combo to win the public's votes.
It's $10 to attend and sample all the entries and fill out your ballot. All proceeds from the Chowder Smackdown will go to Mealshare, the organization that operates a "buy a meal, give a meal" style dining out program to provide food to local kids in need.
The 2018 Chowder Smackdown pair-ups are:
- The Lamplighter Pub with Red Truck Brewing
- Crab Park Chowdery with Howe Sound Brewing
- The Portside Pub with Strange Fellows Brewing
- Blarney Stone with Bomber Brewing
When: Thursday, February 8 at 6 pm
Where: The Portside Pub - 7 Alexander Street
Cost: $10. Tickets available at The Portside Pub
