craft beer market

this past weekend mr. handsome and i went out for a night on the town with my parents.
 dinner and a concert? okay, twist my arm.
growing up there were two tapes (yes, tapes, not cd's) that pretty much were the anthem/soundtrack to all family road trips.  don william's greatest hits and pretty much anything sang by randy travis.  we were raised on country and to this day that's where my heart belongs.

so when i found out a few months ago that don william's was coming to calgary on tour,  i immediately jumped on board and got tickets for the four of us.
childhood relived, live!

and because you can't go to a concert on an empty stomach or thirsty, we first had dinner & great craft beer, courtesy Craft Beer Market @ 345 10th avenue sw.
for someone who appreciates a good beer, is married to someone who brews his own, it's a wonder how this was my first visit to a place that should really be a regular watering hole.


best brews of the night belong to:

new belgium snapshot wheat - fort collins, co
pyramid audacious apricot ale - seattle, wa

baja fish tacos |  ocean wise fish spice rubbed and grilled.  served with fresh cabbage, pico de gallo, avocado and craft signature hot sauce

pacific lingcod |  ocean wise lingcod baked in a house made lemongrass, fresh turmeric and coconut sauce.  served on a bed of grilled cauliflower and steamed rice

classic burger |  house made pickles, lettuce, tomato, onion and house made mustard.

brewmaster's chicken sandwich |  naturally raised chicken breast, avocado, bacon, aged cheddar, tomato, lettuce, red onion, served on a grilled ciabatta bun.
a night well spent.  cheers.  xo
