The Spring/Summer 2023 edition of the Growler is out now and here’s where you can find it!

The Growler is back with all the beer news and features you need to get you through the spring and summer! In what we should perhaps call our “travel issue,” Growler Ontario contributor Max Morin takes a trip along northwest B.C.’s Ale Trail, Matt Cavers discovers that the beer and cider scene in New Zealand is well worth the (long) trip, and Joe Wiebe takes us on the road to Toronto (where he was a judge at the Canada Beer Cup) and makes the case that Toronto should be nicknamed the “Six-Pack.”

Closer to home, Noëlle Phillips digs into B.C.s hidden beer industry—the malters who supply local products to breweries small and large, and Sandra Thomas talks to the team at Belgard Kitchen, who shared a recipe for salmon gravlax with IPA beet purée.

Ted Child digs deep into history and asks the age-old question: What came first, beer or bread? And Growler Ontario editor Jordan St. John explores the zesty and cheerful hefeweizen—including suggested food pairings and must-try B.C. beers.

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:
