The Spring 2019 issue of The Growler is out NOW!

The Spring 2019 issue of The Growler has arrived and it’s packed full of the latest news from the B.C. craft beer scene, hilarious articles, insightful interviews and close to 170 brewery listings and 350-plus beers. And check out that super cool over art from Vancouver illustrator Marcus Hynes!

One of the most amazing things about craft beer is its ability to bring people together and to build community. This issue we look at how a new breed of brewery is taking that concept a step further: non-profit brewing ventures created solely to raise funds for charitable causes. We also look at the transformative power craft breweries have had on neighbourhoods and how they could be forced out of the communities they helped to create.

Speaking of community, did you know that women are the fastest growing demographic in B.C. tasting rooms? That’s great news for writer Rebecca Whyman—and everyone else, quite frankly.

Spring also means new seasonal releases, and ‘tis the season for saison. The Thirsty Writer, Joe Wiebe, breaks down the history and mystery of the Belgian farmhouse style, with some great local recommendations.
