Chocolate Olive Oil Cake with orange coulli paired with the Double Mountain Land Yacht Cask.

My favourite dish was the Smoked Half Chicken with sour peach glaze which was outstanding and this was the best pairing of the meal. This Peche Mode beer was made with 720 pounds of peaches which were all grown in their own orchard which is owned by the brewery. Darby’s Public House is located at 2001 Macdonald Street in Vancouver.
