Ontario craft beer guide The Growler

After a summer hiatus to our publishing schedule, we’re finally back with a packed Ontario craft beer guide. While The Growler Ontario went on hiatus, craft breweries never stopped. In fact, no less than 19 new craft breweries have opened in Ontario since the spring. You can get the goods on all of them in Beer to the Ground by Jordan St. John, and in our comprehensive listings of 290 Ontario craft breweries.

To survive, craft brewers have navigated an ever-changing market, and we asked four experts to predict what changes will last in Ontario beer culture when the pandemic passes. Erica Campbell of Society of Beer Drinking Ladies writes on the future of festivals, Mallory Jones co-founder of Matron Fine Beer on the future of beer retail, Tiffany Alexis Davey, co-founder of High Season, on the growing importance of social media, and Tej Sandhu co-founder of Merit Brewing on breweries making themselves over as high-end depanneurs.

Racial injustice is on our radar like never before, Robin LeBlanc explores how five Ontario craft breweries are working to create more equity and diversity—and offers up beer recommendations from each of them.

Ren Navarro virtually sat down with the owners of Flux Brewing and Red Tape Brewing to find out just how much it sucked to try to open a brand new brewery in the midst of a pandemic.

Finally, there’s no doubt that as drinkers we’ve been forced to change our habits. So check out Ben Johnson’s home-drinking tips just in time for a new round of lockdowns across the province.
