Our History

What’s Brewing originated in 1990 as a bimonthly newsletter billed as The Magazine of the Campaign For Real Ale British Columbia. For 25 years, it has been the journal of BC’s craft beer movement, since the days before it was called Craft Beer. In the pages of WB one can find the history of how BC’s craft beer culture has come of age. Written and edited by devoted beer enthusiasts, the publication has covered all topics from BC beer politics to business to travel, events, and anything relevant to the craft beer community. You can read more about our history through the eyes of some BC craft beer leaders here:

What’s Brewing today

beer-100-transparent_1000x1000pxWhat’s Brewing is now presented to the general public in a modern digital magazine format. The full-colour publication can be viewed online via Web browser or mobile app using all types of devices from tablets to smartphones to desktop. It can also be obtained as a glossy magazine or self-printed for offline reading, preferably alongside a nice pint. Our volunteer-based team (not affiliated with CAMRA BC, although most of us are members) has built respect in the community for our quarterly magazine and ancillary services such as our community events calendar and weekly HopLine email blast.

The new What’s Brewing features great original beer writing from front to back. We spotlight some of the best recent articles by BC beer bloggers and authors in order to help bring attention to the talent that exists here in BC and Western Canada. WB also acts as a platform for craft community news and announcements. We feel that What’s Brewing should always be a strong voice supporting the BC craft beer movement.
