On Thursday October 18, 2019, residents and guests gathered in the bistro at Canterbury Place Retirement Residence in North York, ON, for a fall Beer & Sausage Tasting.
Most months Teresa Harrington, Area Life Enrichment Leader-Ontario, and Gary O’Brien, Dining Services Manager, at Canterbury Place host a Wine Tour and Tasting, complete with a travelogue video and cooking demonstration from their designated viticulture destination.
This month, to complement their Oktoberfest celebrations and welcome in fall, they decided to spice things up a little with a spin on their already very popular tasting events.
Guests were served three beers and three sausages to match. The line up included:
- Heineken – a pale lager matched with a mild Knockwurst sausage.
- Steam Whistle – a pilsner matched with the delicate flavours of a Polish sausage
- Ricker’s Red – an ale matched with a flavourful chorizo sausage.
Residents and guests learned about German Purity Laws (the only ingredients be used in the production of beer are water, barley, hops and yeast,) history, brewing techniques, types of beer and of course tasting techniques.
