The Spring 2020 issue of The Growler is here and this is where you can find it!

This issue marks the fifth anniversary of The Growler, and we’re celebrating by changing things up. The first thing you might notice is that we’ve streamlined and condensed our brewery listings. This has allowed us to do something we’ve been wanting to do for a very long time: adding cideries.

That’s right, The Growler is now B.C.’s Craft Beer and Cider Guide.

Just as craft beer has exploded over the past decade, so too has cider. It seems British Columbians can’t get enough of delicious, locally produced craft beverages! One of the many things that makes B.C. cider so great is that it’s largely made with B.C. fruits, thus supporting local agriculture. And just as breweries have experimented with beer styles, so too have cideries, with offerings ranging from traditional dry ciders all the way to funky wild-fermented Basque-style sagardoa, and everything in between. There’s a good reason nearly every craft brewery tasting room in the province has at least one cider on tap, and now you’ll be able to discover all of B.C.’s cideries, all in one place.

Of course, we’ve still got plenty of beer. In fact, we’ve increased the number of informative articles, entertaining features and interviews with the most interesting personalities in B.C. craft beer. And we’ve got more great maps, too, so whether it’s beer or cider you fancy, you’ll find what you’re looking for.

Thanks for sharing the past five years with us, we look forward to many more!
