The Summer 2019 issue of The Growler has landed!

The Summer 2019 issue of The Growler has landed, and it’s packed full of the latest news from the B.C. craft beer scene, hilarious articles, insightful interviews and more than 180 brewery listings and details on close to 400 beers.

One thing that never ceases to amaze me is how the craft beer scene in B.C. is in a constant state of evolution. Take Victoria, for example. The birthplace of craft beer in Canada has been slow to adopt the tasting room, but breweries like Phillips and Île Sauvage have recently changed that, ushering in a new era of craft beer in the capital.

Meanwhile, in Wine Country, craft beer is booming. With three new breweries open in the past year, and another five on the way, Kelowna is quickly becoming a craft beer destination in its own right. In fact, dozens of new breweries are currently being planned all over the province, many of them in mid-size cities like Kelowna, Langley, and Comox Valley. And if you’re looking for the best way to experience them all, Joe Wiebe has come up with bike tour itineraries for every region of B.C.

Of course, not all craft breweries find success, as is evidenced by the growing list of now defunct breweries. But that’s all part of the ebb and flow of craft beer. The only constant, is change.
