Beer and Food a Perfect Pairing at Citizen Brewing

Citizen Brewing 6

Fried chicken and beer at Citizen Brewing

Citizen Brewing is noted for its excellent pub food, crafted by chef Brad Stefaniuk. Think chuck burgers, chicken sandwiches and pulled pork banh mi.

But an even bigger deal the day I was there was a bus full of thirsty German tourists. Now that’s a discerning audience.

The brewery is right beside the taproom

Food Acclaimed burgers and fried chicken

Favourite beer The Hijacked IPA (7%, 80 IBU) has a better story—stolen food truck—but I like the balanced Batch 2 North West Pale Ale (5.5%, 55 IBU)
