The tour starts at Varsha Indian Kitchen where you will sample their famous butter chicken curry and a spicy veggie pakora. Beer and Indian food are a perfect fit. At this stop you will pair two local beers that go perfect with dishes with lots of spice and flavour. 

After a leisurely stroll through historic Chinatown including Fan Tan Alley, the tour heads to the iconic Swan’s brewery. Nestled in an old grain storage building, Swan’s has been brewing great beer since 1989. 2 beers will be paired with a creamy and crispy arancini and some of their bread made with the spent grains from the brewery. Beer and bread are a match made in heaven!
