Join the Revolution!

The most detailed collection of B.C.’s craft breweries is now more comprehensive than ever! Since the first edition of Craft Beer Revolution was published in 2013, twenty-seven new breweries have opened and another dozen or more are scheduled to open by mid-2015. Joe Wiebe, the Thirsty Writer, revisits the established ales and lagers and explores the province’s freshest new hoppy IPAs and strong stouts in this completely revised and updated guide.

Microbrewing has exploded into a significant figure in the marketplace—the market share for artisanal beer climbed to more than 20% in 2014—and craft beer has become prominent in restaurants and taprooms, with craft beer converts carrying home growlers of creative and delicious brews. From the Kootenays to the west coast of Vancouver Island, the craft beer scene is booming.

With profiles of BC’s finest craft breweries, as well as tap lists, bottle shops and an insider’s look at the people behind the kegs and casks, Craft Beer Revolution, 2nd Edition explains how to best experience the beer phenomenon that’s sweeping the province.
