Fets Pig Roast, Catfish and Whisky Dinner

Beam Suntory Canada’s Bourbon Whiskey Ambassador Matt Jones will be hosting our first Jim Beam pig roast. Matt will be bringing 7 American whiskies and Chef Thien will be serving up a whole roasted pig and a mess of catfish. Matt will be bringing along some new releases as well as a few time honoured classics. How about we add some warm bacon & corn potato salad, collard greens, sweet potato mash and corn bread, then finish of with apple pie topped with bourbon ice cream.

It’s summer, it’s a pig roast and there’s gonna be loads of whiskey. What could possibly go wrong, ehm I mean how great does this sound.There are only 25 tickets available and I can assure you they sell out fast. $77 including GST fees and is open to only 25 people!
