4th annual Wild Boar and Beer BBQ

Back by popular demand! Slow Food Edmonton’s 4th annual Wild Boar and Beer BBQ takes place on Sunday, July 12, 2009, at Alley Kat Brewery (9929-60 Avenue) from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
This celebration of local food and drink features beer samplings and brewery tours of Edmonton’s award-winning microbrewery, Alley Kat.
In addition to wild boar from Mayerthorpe’s Hog Wild Specialties, the menu will feature various local, regional, seasonal side dishes. Live celtic blues music (http://www.dawndesmarais.com/) rounds off the afternoon.
With the increasing awareness of carbon and ecological footprint our foods come with, concerned consumers are becoming more and more interested in sourcing foods closer to home. And food less traveled just tastes better, is fresher and leads to a more vibrant food community.
Tickets are $35 for members, $40 for non-members, $10 for kids 10 and under. Tickets can be purchased at on-line right here or at the Alley Kat Brewery. Get your tickets early; this event has sold out every year.

Note: Tickets purchased online may be picked up at the event entrance!
