BC Craft Beer Month

Add a Comment by Rebecca Bollwitt

It’s only fitting that we celebrate BC Craft Beer Month since it was right here in the Greater Vancouver area that John Mitchell opened the first modern craft brewery in Canada back in 1982. Today, there are over 70 craft breweries in the province and craft beer has bubbled up to 12.7% (of all beer production) in 2011.
