Recently my family went to a wedding on Salt Spring Island. While we were there, we made a valiant effort to sample many of the local products, including this signature blend cider.
Nelson, British Columbia, is likely my second favourite city in BC, after Victoria. The reasons that make Victoria and Nelson a cut above most other communities include a wide array of historic buildings, a strong contingent of community driven businesses rather than large multinationals, a rather tolerant left leaning culture, beautiful geography, and fantastic places to go for a drink! In Nelson one of the places to be is surely the Library Lounge within the historic Hume Hotel!
Back in August I had the pleasure to work with one Mr. Erwin, who was a great help in coming up with all sorts of silly ironic food ideas to consume. Our first creation was the popcorn chicken poutine. Then one day we decided that we should drink Caesars after work, complete with the addition of mini sliders!
I rarely blog about the same beer twice, but lately I have found myself drinking a few of Lighthouse’s good Jackline Rhubarb Grisette and reminiscing about last year’s consumption. So to celebrate this flashback, here are a couple of photos from this afternoon’s snack of beer, cheese, and apple.
