In this issue, we celebrate the best of B.C. beer and cider with the results of the 4th annual Growler Craft Beer and Cider Awards!

Noëlle Phillips visits SFU’s new B.C. craft beer archive, dedicated to the local history of our favourite beverage. Rob Mangelsdorf goes farther back in history with his look at the many, many patron saints of beer.

In this issue’s Style Snapshot, Ontario editor Jordan St. John explores imperial stouts, with food pairing examples and must-try B.C. beers. Sandra Thomas meets the team at Victoria’s Boomtown, who share a recipe for Street Corn Salad—with a suggested beer pairing, of course!

Ted Child takes a look at the growing trend of foraging for spruce tips to flavour beer, and how they can help convey terroir, or a sense of place, in our beer. Speaking of terroir, cider expert Matt Cavers walks us through the process of wild fermentation—where cidermakers rely almost solely on the wild yeast that exists naturally on fruit—to make cider, and how this process allows for a much more complex flavour in the final product.

Joe Wiebe takes us on the road to Winnipeg, and makes the case that we should add it to our must-visit-and-drink-beer bucket list.

Finally, as always, we have a comprehensive listing of all the breweries (and breweries to come) in beautiful, beer-drinking British Columbia. Subscribe here and never miss an issue or see where you can pick up your copy below:
