We live in a sausage deprived society…
To remedy this, we're opening Bestie, a friendly little sausage and beer parlour in Vancouver's historic Chinatown. Inspired by German street food and driven by local bounty, Bestie will serve up all natural, sustainably raised meat from local farms and master butchers. We will bring in produce grown right here in downtown Vancouver's urban farms and all our sauces and condiments will be made in-house from quality natural ingredients.The Bestie menu will be simple, focused, and always changing with what's fresh.
On tap, some of the best examples of BC craft beers will be paired to our menu. as well as a variety of unique German bottled beer. Just one red wine and one white wine on tap but a storied selection of schnapps and digestifs to help finish your meal.
Bestie will be open for lunch, friendly dinners, late night eats, and thirsty visits anytime.
Who We Are
We are Clinton McDougall and Dane Brown, friends and business partners who met while working at a design studio in East Vancouver. We've been working on Bestie for over a year, researching, planning and putting the pieces together.
Clinton brings a strong background in hospitality and restaurant management having worked his way up through several successful Vancouver restaurants. Dane has small business start-up experience, having helped found WorkSpace, a co-working space and hub for entrepreneurs.
The Magic Sausage Card Campaign
We're opening Bestie on a small budget, building the place ourselves with the help of family, friends and the community. We're launching this pre-sales campaign to help complete our vision of what Bestie should be and to generate momentum in the lead up to our grand opening.
With your support, we're aiming to raise $10,000 through pre-sales of Magic Sausage Cards. This money will go a long way in helping to complete the details that will make Bestie special; everything from outfitting our late-night currywurst window, to getting the right baking equipment and proper beer steins.
When you buy a Magic Sausage Card for a given value, you will get a card pre-loaded with that amount to spend at Bestie. As our thanks to you for buying a Magic Sausage Card before we open, we're offering special perks that range from Sausage Lover pinback buttons, to having the whole restaurant for your own private party.
Bestie will be a special neighborhood spot, a meeting place for good folks to break bread without breaking the bank. We thank you for your support, whether it's buying a Magic Sausage Card or sharing this video with your friends.
We look forward to serving you sausages in early 2013!
