Low brow for the everyman or refined for the sophisticate? Boisterous and festive or complex and thought provoking? Thirst quenching on a hot day or sipped elegantly by candle light? One of mankind's greatest dilemmas has always been: beer or wine?
Hart House Restaurant
invites you to solve one of the oldest conundrums by offering the Grains Versus
Grapes menu. For 30 days, we will be offering a four course dinner of
elegant West Coast fare created by Chef Mike Genest.
Sommelier and beer aficionado Si Man Lee has taken up the mantle of creating mouth watering pairings by award winning New Westminster craft brewery Steel & Oak and maverick winery Moon Curser from Osoyoos.
Simply come in for dinner and choose between a wine or beer pairing with the Grains Versus Grapes menu, take a photo and post to Instagram (be sure to follow and mention in your post @harthouserest, @steelandoak and @mooncurservineyards)with a hashtag of either #beerisbest or #wineisfine for which you thought enhanced your dinner better. The most liked beer photo and wine photo will win gift baskets generously provided by Moon Curser and Steel & Oak.
