The Fall/Winter 2023 issue of The Growler is out now and here’s where you can find it.

This issue’s cover art is by Vancouver-based artist Lea Linin.

It’s an exciting time to be in craft beer. We’ve got openings, closings, mergers, acquisitions, hops, barley, yeast, and slightly uncomfortable taproom stools.

In this issue, we’ve gotten off the slightly uncomfortable taproom stools and headed out into the world. Sean Mallard sits on a tractor and spreads seed all over the back forty. Gary Gillman heads out to see the improvisational gladiatorial zymurgy that is Ontario’s Iron Brewer competition. Mark Solomon heads into the great north woods equipped only with a rifle and a two-four of pilsner. Ben Johnson has been out drinking with the guys from Beerlab! and wants to tell you about their expansion!

Closer to home, Beer To The Ground is back with updates on new breweries and closures in addition to irresponsible speculation about bear fights. Brewer vs. Brewer features the staff at Amsterdam vs. Toronto’s own Victorian-era brewer Enoch Turner. Sabryna Ekstein has a recipe for Oyster Mushrooms and Corn Custard paired with a beer from Black Bellows.

So belly up to the bar, grab a copy of The Growler, and perch upon a slightly uncomfortable taproom stool. Just make sure your foot doesn’t fall asleep. —Jordan St. John, editor
