The Growler Craft Beer Handbook
The Bible for B.C. Beer Drinkers Available This Weekend
Vancouver, BC (January 28, 2015) - B.C.¹s craft beer industry is growing so
fast, it¹s basically impossible to keep tabs on what¹s opened, what¹s on tap
and where anything is located. The Growler, a quarterly craft beer handbook,
aims to solve all that.
The first issue available starting January 31 at breweries, bars, private
liquor stores and select boutiques, restaurants and coffee shops in and
around Vancouver includes profiles of every craft brewery in the Lower
Mainland, highlighting regular and seasonal beers, along with general and
quirky facts on each brewery. This is your go-to guide for what breweries
are in what neighbourhood; which ones offer growler fills; which have food;
and which allow kids inside (Hint: Almost all of em!), among other things.
Issue 1 also includes features by Craft Beer Revolution author Joe Wiebe,
This Day in Vancouver author Jesse Donaldson and The Growler editor Stephen
Smysnuik, along with beautiful design and illustrations meant to reflect the
creative, artisanal and community aspects that have made the craft beer
industry so appealing.
Rather than launch with a digital edition, the intention with this first
issue was to create something physical, something you can hold, or bend, or
light a fire with if you¹re in a pinch. It¹s something to leave on your
coffee table, or in your purse, or in your bathroom (if you¹re in to that
sort of thing).
Don¹t fret! A website is under construction. In the meantime, follow The
Growler on Twitter and Instagram: @thegrowlerbc. Look out for future
editions in April, July and October.
The Growler is a Glacier Media <http://www.glaciermedia.ca> publication.
