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.
