Move aside, democracy sausage — when this Election Day rolls around on Saturday, May 21, you can swap your usual solo snag for a full-blown barbecue spread with top-notch craft brews to match.

The meat masters at Burn City Smokers are teaming up with their mates at Toronto-based brewery Bellwoods and taking over Footscray's Mr West Bar & Bottleshop for the inaugural Democracy Barbecue.

Grab an $89 ticket and you'll enjoy a snack on arrival, followed by a three-course barbecue lunch feast — with a Canadian twist, in honour of the day's special beer guests.

The lunch will double as a beer showcase for Pint of Origin (normally held as part of Good Beer Week), featuring a range of Bellwood brews. That means your barbecue spread will include six of the brewery's signature beers, carefully paired to Burn City Smokers' fire-licked food.
