The Growler is read by those who care deeply about what they eat and drink and how they live. Our loyal community of fans is deeply devoted to living the good life and they spend accordingly.

The Growler readers are successful professionals who pick up the trade-paperback-sized digest every issue for its on-trend coverage of B.C.’s rapidly growing craft beer and cider markets. Whether they’re headed to a music festival, a camping weekend or out with friends to a new restaurant, craft beer and cider are a focus for their leisure time and they want to know what to drink now.

Most importantly, our readers will want to read The Growler, cover to cover. Many will collect all of our issues and use them for their resourcefulness. We have a dedicated audience that continues to grow.

Carry The Growler in your retail store

Every spring/summer and fall/winter The Growler B.C. will be distributed across the province. The three options for finding a copy are: Newsstands, subscribe for direct delivery, or—best of all—brewery retail shops. We don’t know about you, but we’d rather hang out where they serve craft beer than next to the ice cream in the grocery store or with the bills in a mailbox.

The Growler makes a great souvenir for the tourist crowd that’s sure to hit your taproom in the summer or a great gift over the holiday season. And because we drop the sticker price by 50% for brewery sales ($3 vs. the usual $6), readers make it a point to visit for their seasonal beer mag fix.

There’s no minimum quantity and, with a minimum initial order of 20 copies, we’ll throw in an attractive wooden display stand. If you have a craft beer bar, homebrew supply shop, or just about any other retail business, we’d love to have you on board as a retail partner.
