VICTORIA, BC – Out now from TorchWood Editions is Beer Quest West: The Craft Brewers of Alberta and British Columbia, a guide to the beers and brewers of Canada’s two westernmost provinces by author Jon C. Stott.
The following description of the book has been provided by the publisher:
Alberta and British Columbia are host to over seventy microbreweries, and that number is increasing every year. In this comprehensive field guide, each brewery is fully described, complete with location, the story of the brewery, profiles of the faces behind the brew and of course, their core list of beers. Terminology is explained, and author Jon Stott discusses the grain-to-glass process and the many different beer styles produced in the western provinces. Whether you favour an IPA, a lager, a porter or stout, you’ll find your pint between the pages of Beer Quest West.
A release party for Beer Quest West will take place on April 14th at Alley Kat Brewing in Edmonton, with Stott in attendance to chat with attendees and sign copies. The book can also be purchased directly from the publisher, and via booksellers including Amazon and Chapters/Indigo.
