Barley Station brewmaster Damon Robson turned brown ale into gold at the Canadian Brewing Awards.
The Barley Station Brew Pub took top honours in the brown ale category for their Bushwhacker Brown Ale. That beer will remain on tap at the Salmon Arm business alongside Robson’s other creations, including the seasonal 65 Roses Honey Red Ale.
Twenty per cent of the profits of this limited edition, dark red, medium bodied brew is being donated to the Kelowna chapter of Cystic Fibrosis Canada.
The new owner of the recently sold Pink Cherry coffee shop on Hudson Avenue says that despite the change in ownership, the menu and ambience will go largely unchanged.
“The good people of Salmon Arm will be pleased to know that there will be no big changes to the current operation of the Pink Cherry,” said Angie Albe, who recently purchased the shop with her husband.
“I’m hoping to be able to keep the good name of the Pink Cherry in the spotlight as one of the best places to go for good food and warm, friendly atmosphere,” Albe said.
Namaste Authentic Indian Cuisine opened its doors on May 31 in the former Wicked Spoon location.
“Food quality is the main priority for us. Our chefs keep high standards and prepare every menu item from scratch,” said owner Ajit Sran.
Namaste serves food with flavours from the north of India, including specialty dishes such as saffron chicken tikka and green curry lamb or chicken made with green peppers, fresh mint and cilantro.
