Porsche 911 Targa Copic Marker Sketch by Terry Leonard
Kelowna Car & Bike Show on May 29th was a well attended event at Rutland Lion’s Park. There was a wide assortment vehicles from Super Cars to Super Beetles! Some of the highlights were the his & hers Lamborghinis, a Ferrari and plenty of American Muscle. This was the 3rd Stop on my 2022 Tour.
The Rustic Reel Brewing Company
With five breweries within approximately a one-block radius in Kelowna’s North End, there were plenty of choices for our after the show beverage. The Rustic Reel Brewing Company was an excellent pick. With their large open air patio and lots of inside seating it made this brewery a vibrant and exciting location.
The selections for my flight of beer were:
Amber Ale (Alcohol 5.0% IBU 20) a traditional English style ale with a smooth maltiness and a hint of caramel, It was an easy choice.
Hazy IPA (Alcohol 6.0% IBU 30) This IPA has a silky smooth body and a very low bitterness.
Raspberry Hibiscus Sour (5% Alcohol 35 IBU) the added raspberries and hibiscus makes this a very refreshing beer and it’s slightly tart sour taste made it a great introduction to sour beers.
Nitro Coffee Stout (alcohol 5.6% 24 IBU) brewed with freshly roasted coffee makes this beer smooth and easy to drink and it’s creamy espresso taste made it perfect for an after dinner refreshment.
For dinner I ordered the Rustic Chicken Club – Roasted chicken breast on a toasted herb focacci, garlic aioli, romaine, charred tomato, pickled onion, bacon jam & Emmental cheese served with fingerling potatoes. It was a fantastic dish with plenty of flavours. I would gladly travel many miles to taste this again! The service was excellent & the staff was cheerful.
