The spring/summer 2022 issue of The Growler is out now and here’s where you can find it!


Eliot once said that April is the cruelest month. Of course, he lived in England. As Canadians we look at the period between April and October as “the months without shovels.” As the crocuses begin to bloom and the patio heaters begin their hibernation, The Growler is back to provide you with options for road trips and a comprehensive guide to the province’s breweries that will let you take advantage of that Ontario Staycation Tax Credit.

That’s right. You heard right. The province is letting you claim 20% of your accommodation expenses up to $400 dollars for a family. Not only should you get out there and explore what Ontario has to offer, but you should keep meticulous records. Of course, if you write for a beer magazine, beer is tax deductible. I have a lot of write offs.

So do our contributors! In this issue, Mark Solomon will be telling you what sights to see in Northern Ontario, David Lee will be visiting sites in PEC, and Robin LeBlanc will be citing what happens when you share with your neighbours. Maxim Morin will be discussing the state of import beer at the LCBO and the future of that category. I’ll be over here filing receipts from Flux and Lost Craft as I sample my way through their wares in Brewer vs. Brewer.

You, though? You should get outside. It’s going to be lovely out. Winds light to variable. —Jordan St. John, editor
