Thirsty – A Craft Beer Column: August 2013

by Joe Wiebe 08.14.2013

Summer of Beer Summer is beer season, and what a great summer we’ve enjoyed this year throughout British Columbia. I was lucky to enjoy incredible weather as I travelled around BC promoting my book, Craft Beer Revolution: The Insider’s Guide to B.C. Breweries. Following its publication in May, I launched the book at events with […]

Craft Beer Review: Lighthouse Brewing Barnacle Wheat IPA

by Joe Wiebe 04.17.2013

Victoria’s Lighthouse Brewing recently expanded its brewery into a neighbouring warehouse, which gave them the room to add some big, new fermentation tanks. This is great news for craft beer lovers since brewer Dean McLeod’s line-up of limited release beers in 650-mL bombers has been one of the most interesting collections of beers put out […]

Holland America Missing the Boat on Craft Beer

by Rick Green 11.12.2012

While beer geeks, like me, look enviously to Washington and Oregon as beer Nirvana, the Hawaii cruise I just returned from made me realize that craft beer is still embraced by a minority of people even in those states. And while one would think that travel is about appreciating and celebrating the uniqueness of place, […]

Thirsty – A Craft Beer Column: November, 2012

by Joe Wiebe 11.09.2012

Last month, as I was writing about all the different pumpkin and fresh-hop beers available in BC, I started thinking about how much variety there is in the craft beer scene here. It’s not news to anyone, I’m sure, but we are certainly lucky to have such a diverse array of beer styles and brands, […]

The finishing touches are being added, more staff hired and trained, but Tap & Barrel in the Olympic Village is now open for business. Village residents and Dragon Zone paddlers will rejoice that mere steps away is the Daniel Hospitality Group’s newest waterfront property, serving craft beverages and local comfort food, along with some of […]

BC Craft Beer Getaways: The Interior Little Circle Route

by Rick Green 06.14.2012

With summer fast approaching, it’s a popular time to head into the interior to enjoy the lakes, mountains, and rivers of supernatural BC. All that driving and warm weather can make travellers a tad thirsty. Unlike canal boating in the UK, where pubs are strategically located to coincide with lunch and dinner, you’ll need to […]

How the Beer Oligopoly Apple Cart was Upset

^ Frank Appleton, Scottie McLellan, and John Mitchell at the Great Canadian Beer Festival in Victoria. On July 26, 1980, Labatt, Molson, and Carling O’Keefe locked out their unionized workers on the threat of a strike, and stopped distributing beer in BC. Since the Big Three produced all the beer sold in the province at […]

The Melody of Craft Beer

by Rick Green 05.13.2012

In most cultures, social gatherings commonly involve three elements – food, alcohol, and music. With Vancouver Craft Beer Week I & II, the connection between beer and food, beyond the typical burgers and pizza, was well-established. Now, VCBW III turns the spotlight on music with our craft brewers featured as rock stars. Music is represented […]

Diamonds in the Rough: Finding Craft Beer in Shanghai

by Rick Green 11.27.2011

On a recent visit to Shanghai, I discovered the craft beer revolution is starting to make inroads into China. While Belgian imports are the most widely available, followed by Germans and the Brits, North American craft beer has only just arrived. These are thinly scattered amongst luxury hotels, Western restaurants, and more upscale supermarkets. But […]

BC Craft Beer Getaways

by Rick Green 08.03.2011

If you love beer, trips always seem to involve a beer bar, brewpub, brewery, or beer festival. Depending on your degree of obsession, the trip may completely revolve around beer or, at the very least, the destinations are chosen with good drinking in mind. Fortunately, the location of any of these establishments is not dependent, […]

Red Card Scores with Summer Beer Series

by Rick Green 08.11.2010

When you think of a typical testosterone sports bar, you imagine a place with raucous guys drinking pitchers of a heavily advertised beer, attacking plates of nachos, chicken wings, or pork bites in between fist waving and shouting at televisions. Chances are, people are not there for the quality of the food or drink. But […]
