Book Description

April 15 2011 1926741161 978-1926741161

It's no secret that Canadians love beer, and in the western provinces, the large number of successful microbreweries continues to prove that distinct beer-high-quality beer-is important to our national pint-lovers. Beer Quest West is for homebrewers and beer aficionados alike: this is your guide to the best of the west.

Alberta and British Columbia are host to over seventy microbreweries, and that number is increasing every year. In this comprehensive field guide, each brewery is fully described, complete with location, the story of the brewery, profiles of the faces behind the brew and of course, their core list of beers. Terminology is explained, and author Jon Stott discusses the grain-to-glass process and the many different beer styles produced in the western provinces. Whether you favour an IPA, a lager, a porter or stout, you'll find your pint between the pages of Beer Quest West.

This was my first foray into Beer Books on the Kindle. Being a Canadian/Australian I was curious to see what Stotts view of the West Coast beer scene is like. He walks through a lot of the craft breweries across Alberta and BC, and I think at the time of this book being released another 50 probably arose around the two provinces in Canada.

Those unfamiliar with the Canadian beer industry should definitely take a read of this book to inquire on various key breweries within the two states. I would be interested to read an updated version of this book in the years to come to see what differences Jon has found, changes for the better or worse.

Vancouver has turned into one of the top beer centred cities in Canada. With breweries like Howe Sound, Central City, Driftwood now making waves across the country, its opened up avenues for new breweries to start like St Augustines '49th Parallel'.

Canada was the base for me in my first foray into Beer Writing and talking about beer trends.
