This Sandwich, That Beer Throwdown at Portland Craft

My friend Kevin and author of the mouth watering blog: This Sandwich, That Beer hosted a This Sandwich, That Beer Throwdown at Portland Craft on Main Street this past Sunday in Vancouver. The event was a fundraiser (and a competition) for the Five Star Footy Club, an organization in Vancouver that gives kids the chance to play soccer.

Six local restaurants participated- Calabash Bistro, El Camino’s, Portland Craft, Street Meet, Woodland’s Smokehouse and Cartem’s Donuts– each supplying a sandwich that was paired with a beer on tap at Portland Craft.

After the votes were tallied, the ice cream donut sandwich (pictured above) by Cartem’s Donuts paired with the Deschutes Black Butte Porter took home the big prize! But if you ask me my favorite was the Calabash Bistro Jerk Duck Confit Sandwich paired with the Hopworks Rise Up Red Pale Ale.

But of course the best news was that over $1,000 was raised for the Five Star Footy Club.

Andrew and I had  a blast and enjoyed stuffing our faces with the local food and beer so much, that afterwards we went home and took a nap: the winning combination. Beers+sandwich+donut+nap+husband= best Sunday ever…

  1. That’s making me hungry! Can I ask what type of camera you use for your pics? (Looking to invest in something a little better than my trusty iphone and am interested in what my fellow bloggers use.)
