About Us

The Growler is a craft beer and lifestyle guide for people who love good beer, good food, good music, and are willing to pay a little more to live well.

Published bi-annually, this trade-paperback-sized digest appeals to anyone interested in Ontario’s rapidly evolving craft beer scene, and craft culture in general. Inside, readers will find a listing of every brewery and brewpub in the province. They’ll also dig deeply into the magazine for stories by Ontario’s best beer and food writers about craftspeople and innovative breweries, beer knowledge, recipes and travel.
