VANCOUVER, BC JULY 1, 2018 – Beer Me BC, one of the most comprehensive beer websites in Canada, was founded by Dustan Sept in 2012. Since then, Beer Me BC has been by far the #1 most-viewed beer website in BC, acting as a resource to thousands of beer consumers, and many industry members as well.
Recently, Mr. Sept has decided to take a step back from the day-to-day management of Beer Me BC. What’s Brewing did not want the BC beer community to lose this amazing asset. As a result, Beer Me BC has become part of the What’s Brewing family. An agreement has been reached that will not only keep the Beer Me BC website online, but should strengthen it significantly from where it is now.
WHAT THIS MEANS TO WHAT’S BREWING
By partnering with Beer Me BC, What’s Brewing has instantly
- tripled its overall monthly website visitor traffic

What’s Brewing was already #1 in Google search for “BC Craft Beer News”. Now, by joining forces with Beer Me BC, they hold both #1 and #2 spots for that term, as well as many other searches about BC craft beer news and events.
WHAT’S COMING NEXT
All-New Job Board
One of the valued features of Beer Me BC has been its Jobs page. This section will soon be converted into a full-service job board that, in the style of the What’s Brewing Events Calendar, will allow the BC industry to self-post jobs at no charge. These will in turn be disseminated to the beer industry and fans in our email and social media communications, making Beer Me BC the logical place to share work opportunities.
Beer Me BC will be resuming its product review service. Breweries with a product release they’d like to share for consideration can find the shipping address here.
Beer Me BC got where it did through extraordinarily hard work. But although Dustan Sept has to take a step back from day to day management, he’ll still be part of Beer Me BC for the foreseeable future. What’s Brewing would like to thank Dustan for everything he’s done for the BC craft beer community to date, and we look forward to having him on the team going forward.
