The Fall/Winter 2020 issue of The Growler is out now and here’s where you can find it!

Since the last issue of The Growler came out just before the pandemic arrived, the world has changed radically. Your favourite beer and cider guide was forced to hit pause for a bit, but we’re happy to be back now.

Over the past eight months since COVID-19 entered our lives, we have marvelled at the resiliency and ingenuity of B.C.’s craft breweries and cideries. Many quickly pivoted to packaging and delivering beer directly to consumers, and then added or expanded their patios to give their customers a safer outdoor alternative.

Equally impressive is the fact that a dozen new breweries have opened since March alone, with many more still in the works. There are now more than 200 craft breweries in B.C. and you’ll find each and every one of them listed in these pages.

We explore a number of topics this issue from the future of beer festivals in the Covid-19 age to a woman-centric history of brewing beer to a guide to Dry January in case all your pandemic drinking has led you to think you need a break. You’ll also find many of our regular features, including brewer interviews and a recipe with recommended beer pairing.

It’s also important to remember that most breweries and cideries are still struggling to get by, and winter weather will likely mean fewer customers on their patios, so it’s still important to support your local. Remember, we’re all in this together—it’s time to buy B.C. now more than ever. Cheers!
