We sampled four fancy poutines paired with four local beers. Pretty much everybody agreed that the poutine was delicious, especially the one topped with Montreal smoked meat. The Coolcumber fruit beer from Wicked Weed Brewing in Asheville, which was paired with the Mexican poutine, was by far the favourite.

Images, descriptions and links are from the reference catalogue that contained details regarding all the Canadian contributions featured in the booth.

Is all of this is making you homesick and hungry? Join us this Sunday at the Carolina Ale House (Brier Creek) for the Grey Cup Finals, Canadian beer and poutine.
CanSouth is getting together at the Carolina Ale House (Brier Creek) to watch the Grey Cup Finals in Winnipeg, Manitoba, on Sunday, November 29 @ 5pm.
Kickoff is at 6pm (5pm in Winnipeg), so you’ll have time to grab a Canadian beer (on tap just for us) and mingle before the game starts. You don’t like Canadian football (or any kind of football)? Then come just for the poutine! Yes, Carolina Ale is treating us to poutine for the occasion.
We look forward to eating poutine and watching the game with you. When you get to the Carolina Ale House, just follow the Canadian flags to the patio…
We need a head count. So if you plan to attend, please register using the form on the * Event Registration * page, available from the menu.
