The Summer 2018 issue of The Growler is out now, with all the pertinent craft beer intel you need to survive the hot weather. This issue of B.C.’s favourite craft beer guide is jam-packed with informative stories, hilarious features and more brewery listings than ever before.

Lagers are all the rage right now, as Joe Wiebe details, but if you’re hoping to enjoy one on the patio at your favourite brewery, you might be out of luck, as Rebecca Whyman explains.

If you’re looking for a new beverage to slake your thirst, try out master bartender Shaun Layton’s Sea To Sky RAD-ler beer cocktail recipe.

If you’re planning a road trip this summer, Northern B.C. has to be on your hit list. Don’t forget to visit the many tiny nanobreweries along the way, and as always, our up-to-date, informative brewery listings (almost 160 of them!) will help you guide your way.

Summertime means summer beer festivals, and there’s plenty of events on the horizon, conveniently listed in our handy dandy events calendar. If you’re hosting your own party, make sure to check out cicerone Chester Carey’s tips for pairing beer with food. And to help you make sure you don’t commit any faux pas, we’ve busted the Top 5 beer myths we hear the most.

So keep your eyes peeled for the latest issue of The Growler! In addition to being available on newsstands across the province (including Save-On-Foods, London Drugs, Shoppers Drug Mart and Chapters locations, to name a few), we’re also available at more than 100 of B.C.’s better craft breweries and beer stores. Make sure to stick around for a beer while you’re picking up the latest edition!
