Chances are, if you’ve eaten here at Boundary Bay Brewery, you’ve indulged in one of our delicious burgers. Because, come on…what goes better with beer than a BURGER?!? Well, we’re now making the burgers we serve in our Bistro and Tap Room even better! Starting this week, our burgers will now be made with local, natural ground beef from Squaw Creek Cattle Co. in Everson.
Squaw Creek is a family owned and operated business, just like ours. Which is part of the reason we’re so excited to be serving up their beef patties. But, it’s also because these cows are grass fed and supplemented with spent grain from our brewery! Here’s what the people behind Squaw Creek have to say about who they are and what they do:
“We are dedicated to keeping a healthy herd and raise our cattle without the use of artificial growth stimulants and hormones. We make certain that the grass our beef are raised on is chemical free. We raise our cattle on large pastures, ensuring plenty of room for healthy grazing. Our beef is mainly grass-fed, with a supplement of spent brewer’s grain. Spent brewer’s grain is the byproduct leftover from the process of crafting beer . It has a high protein and fiber content and is highly digestible for cattle. The advantage of beef that has been raised with a supplement of brewer’s grain is that the finished product is lean, yet has a quality of marbling that cannot be achieved on a solely grass fed diet. To us, it makes a lot of sense to feed out cattle spent brewer’s grain because it’s reusing a product that has already fulfilled one purpose and can, now again, be used as an energy source for our cattle.”
So it all goes full circle, and here at Boundary Bay, this is a motto we like to stick by. Local businesses supporting local businesses!
So, what are you waiting for?!? Come try a 1/3 lb. patty of local, natural ground beef from Squaw Creek Cattle Company, char broiled with all the fixings on a locally made pretzel bun from Ralf’s Bavarian Bakery. Served with your choice of roasted potatoes, house salad or Tim’s potato chips. $9.99
