Paul Morris


Strictly speaking–and he does speak strictly sometimes–Mr. Morris is more than an editor to What’s Brewing. As detailed in this profile of the new-generation WB, the magazine as you know it today wouldn’t be here without this former CAMRA Vancouver VP. When not scouring the written submissions for imperfect composition, he’ll be found enjoying a cask ale at The Whip.
