The Wonderful World of Beer Club – Featuring Swans Brewpub

November 15, 2012 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm


The UClub Presents the “Wonderful World of Beer” Club
Thursday, November 15th, 2012

Beginning at 5:00 p.m.

Join the UClub for the fifth meeting of the Beer Club. Swans Brewpub will be featured at the November meeting. Michael Williams opened swans in 1989. It is the second oldest continuously operating brewpub in B.C. On Michael Williams death it was bequeathed to UVic. Swans’ award winning brewer, Andrew Tessier, will be introduced by John Rowling, beer club coordinator. Since he started brewing at Swans in 2003, Andrew has won 24 medals at the Canadian Brewing Awards (CBA) for his beers, including three medals in Montreal this June.


For the opening toast we’ll start with Swans Arctic Ale, which won a silver medal in the Kolsch class in June.

Next will be the Swans Pumpkin Ale which will be matched with a roasted pumpkin soup and cheese scone.

Swans Extra IPA won a bronze medal in the American style IPA class at the CBA. This beer will be paired with a spicy chorizo sausage & pineapple pizza.

Andrew created Swans Legacy Ale to commemorate Michael Williams’ legacy. Chef Davey will pair it with a trio of cheeses including boschetto al tartufo, aged farmhouse cheddar and blue stilton.

The evening will end with The Black Swan, an oak aged imperial stout, full of oak and vanilla flavours which will go so well with the flourless chocolate cake with vanilla bean sauce.

$19.95 per person
