Beginning Sunday June 10 and running throughout the Summer, join us at the brewery every week for Sunday Pintxos by Abuela (formerly the Heirloom Kitchen).
Inspired by our travels to San Sebastian, Sunday Pintxos at Dominion City is your chance to extend the Sunday before starting out the work week.
Pintxos (pronounced peen-chos) is a 'Basque-ified' take on the Spanish word 'pincho', which itself comes from the verb 'pinchar', which is 'to pierce'. Pinchos are traditionally pierced with a cocktail stick to attach it to the piece of bread that they invariably came attached to.
It’s typical to go into a bar in the Basque Country and find the entire counter lined with plates of various pintxos. They range from traditional pintxos of tortilla de patatas (potato and onion omelette) to mini haute cuisine experiments such as a grilled foie gras with a cream of white beans and a fruity sauce.
One of the 'novelties' of pintxos is that you don't order, you take. When you arrive at the brewery on Sundays you'll be handed a card and a plate. Guests are invited to help themselves and to track what they've eaten on the card. Bar service for beer (and soon ciders from our favourite Ontario cideries!) will also be noted on your card. At the end of the evening you can turn in your card to settle your tab.
