VANCOUVER, BC – The Spring 2019 issue of The Growler – a quarterly guide to British Columbia’s craft brewing scene – is now available.
In addition to extensive listings for breweries throughout the province, the latest edition feature a variety of editorial content, including the following:
Thankfully, spring has returned, and with it, beer fest season. Spring also means new seasonal releases, and ‘tis the season for saison. We break down the history and mystery of the Belgian farmhouse style, with some great local recommendations.
One of the most amazing things about craft beer is its ability to bring people together and to build community. This issue we look at how a new breed of brewery is taking that concept a step further: non-profit brewing ventures created solely to raise funds for charitable causes. We also explore the transformative power craft breweries have had on neighbourhoods, and how they could be forced out of the very communities they helped to create.
Speaking of community, recent data suggests women are the fastest growing customer demographic in tastings rooms, which is great news for everyone.
The Growler Volume 5 Issue 1 is available now at breweries, liquor stores, newsstands, and other retailers throughout British Columbia. It can also be purchased online individually or as part of an annual subscription, and select articles are available to read on the magazine’s website.
