Ile Sauvage Beer & Food Pairing $60: JULY 24th
We have partnered with Stephan Turcotte, the brewmaster and owner of local Victoria brewery Ile Sauvage for unique beer & food pairing.
Stephan is co-owner and brewmaster of Ile Sauvage Brewery opened in early 2019. Dedicated to the art of sour beer in the Orval tradition of French-speaking Belgium, île Sauvage focuses on uncategorical beer flavours achieved by a handful of specific techniques not associated with the average beer-making routine. These include long fermentation processes; the use of wild yeast and house-mixed bacterial and lacto cultures and the addition of flavours like rosemary, coriander and sea salt. Everything is blended to taste. Stephan is also a certified Ciceron, the beer version of sommelier training.
The delivered bag contains 4 local craft beers paired with 4 culinary dishes that were suggested by Stephan to pair perfectly. The bag is designed to be consumed by one person but could be shared. Each bag will contain tasting notes on each pairing and Stephan will lead the group through a 1-hour online tasting with the option to ask questions and interact with the other tasters in the group.

Things to know about delivery:
– We only take 25 deliveries per event so if the day is blocked out it is because we have reached our max capacity for deliveries.
– We will deliver bags containing both the food samples and the alcohol samples in the afternoon between 12pm-5pm. The interactive online Zoom tasting will take place in the early evening.
– We will send you a 1-hour window for when we will deliver and will text you when we have arrived.
– You will be required to show ID at the door at the time of delivery.
– We offer contactless delivery right to your door. Delivery to Victoria, Esquimalt, Victoria West and Saanich included. A $5 delivery fee is required for Western Communities (Langford, Colwood, Sooke) and North and Central Saanich.
Can I make substitutions for what is in the bag?
At this time we are unable to substitute items. We suggest if there is something in the bag you might not want, give it to a neighbour, a friend, or donate to a food bank.
What if I’m vegetarian or have dietary issues?
We have a vegetarian option that you can order. Unfortunately we are unable to accommodate some food allergies but please call us at 778-918-4584 and we can see if we can make some adjustments.
Do I need to be home for the delivery?
Yes. Since the box has food we wouldn’t want to leave it outside. We will text the number you provide with a time frame and we will try and accommodate timing requests.
How are you maintaining safe practices?
Each of the partner restaurants are certified kitchens and all are practicing the safe protocols set out by the government. There is no current evidence that COVID-19 is transmitted via food and restaurants are permitted to operate during the shutdown. Every single person handling products and boxes wears protective gloves and everyone has been trained on how to properly wash their hands as well as safe food handling practices.
Our delivery drivers are taking extra precautions: Your delivery will be dropped at your doorstep and you’ll receive a text that your box has been delivered. We are not ringing doorbells or unnecessarily touching anything other than your ordered items directly. We are also changing gloves after every delivery. Although there is no evidence that COVID-19 is transmitted through packaging, we continue to be meticulous in our efforts of sanitation of all delivery items.
