BC Craft Beer Month rolls along with cool new seasonal beers and events to drink ’em at (as Ed’s column below confirms). Amongst those new beers are a whack of collabs, including some high-profile ones like BC Beer Triple Dry-Hopped Lager Collaboration Brew, the official collab beer of BC Craft Beer Month. Find it at these outlets; proceeds benefit the BC Hospitality Foundation.
