Can’t get enough of Breweries in BC? You need The Growler.
In case you’ve been under a rock, The Growler is B.C.'s quarterly craft beer guide, covering the Breweries in BC, the beer and the industry as it swells and threatens to consume us all if we don't consume it (the beer) first. The Growler offers profiles of all the BC Craft breweries, stories on the people and pressing issues, and pretty pictures in case you feel like gazing absently at something that isn't your iPhone.
Check out the new issue- or an old one! Featured in the new summer issue is a guide to reviewing beer without being a dink about it; an extremely nerdy music and beer quiz; a deep look into how Port Moody became cool all of a sudden; and so, so many brand new beers.

Excerpts from some recent articles in The Growler include:
- “Know Your Freaky Hangover Cures, People” First, there was alcohol. And it was good. Then – likely the next morning – came the nauseous, head-pounding hangover. And it was very bad. For thousands of years, different cultures all over the world have suffered hangovers, and have subsequently tried just about everything – from the weird to the gross – to cure them. Even science can’t figure out a silver bullet cure.
So, how well do you know your hangover cures? Take the quiz below, and check the answers at the end.
- “The Growler Guide to Portland” There’s too bloody much to do in Portland. You might know this. If not…dude. Every district has a dozen little neighbourhoods, all of which are self-contained with every kind of restaurant imaginable, countless bars, excellent coffee shops, strip joints and, yes, of course, breweries.
- “Beer Tastes Just Fine Out of the Can, Thank You Very Much”
“Cans? Are you crazy?”
If you, like me, have used this as your rallying cry – if you have spent the past few years scoffing at canned beer’s highly inferior taste, decrying its proponents as hopeless plebs, and turning up your nose at anything that doesn’t come out of a bottle – well… I’ve got some bad news.
It’s all in your head.
- “Where’s Surrey’s Beer Scene, Dude?” Perhaps you’ve already noticed, but B.C.’s craft beer boom has been consistent across the province. Smaller, more remote communities such as Cumberland, Invermere and Terrace have all staked a claim to the burgeoning industry, right alongside Vancouver and Victoria.
There are still notable gaps, mostly in Vancouver’s suburbs. Burnaby and Richmond only have two breweries each – no sign of spillover from Vancouver’s 20-plus – while Coquitlam and Port Coquitlam have yet to set off the mark.
