Whether you’re a fan of BC craft beer, live in BC or just visiting, then this is a book for your collection. It is a dossier of brewpubs and microbreweries and covers fundamental information of a brewery’s offerings and sometimes with a bit of history is thrown in. If you can see past the clunky and inconsistent formatting, (this is a self published book) and get to the ‘meat and potatoes’, then you will really find a lot of great information from this guide. If you’re planning any beer related trip in British Columbia, this guide will likely motivate you to check out what’s in the area of your visit.
From beer neophyte to established aficionado, there is information that everyone can use in this publication, and call upon it as a consistent reference. Keep in mind that this book was published in 2010 and already many changes have occurred in the craft beer industry in “Beautiful BC”, but for the most part, it is still very relevant; that being said, I wholeheartedly look forward to the 2nd edition in the future.
