What to Eat

This year, over 50 featured local restaurants and chefs from across Vancouver and Whistler will be serving some exceptional dishes cooked over an open fire to savour. BATB celebrates the outdoor roots of the festival by giving chefs free rein to be bold and creative through both traditional and modern cooking techniques that involve whole animal roasts, smoking, braising, and grilling. Chefs will showcase innovative dishes with various proteins from beef to bison, pork, lamb, goat, wild boar, chicken, elk, rabbit, and duck.

Participating restaurants include Savio Volpe, Published on Main, Elisa, Anh and Chi, Boulevard, Pourhouse, Torafuku, The Victor, Homer Street Cafe, Two Rivers Meats, Wildlight, Alimentaria Mexicana, Cómo Taperia, Paella Guys, Tacofino, and many more.

What to Drink

Known for showcasing high-quality meat in various styles, the festival pairs the wide variety of dishes available with chilled beer, craft ciders, premium wines, hard seltzers, refreshing cocktails, kombucha tea, and a selection of zero-proof options. As half of the event’s name suggests, there will be plenty of beers and ales on hand from Parallel 49 Brewing, Driftwood Brewery, and Vancouver Island Brewery.

As for cocktails, VIP ticketholders can also enjoy two custom-made cocktails from Beverage Ambassador Chris Enns and his team with premium ingredients and spirits such as Ardbeg Whiskey and Tito’s Vodka. These drinks promise to have a thematic connection to the event and summer.
