As a recent transplant to the North Island community of Comox, I had fun in the fall, social-distance visiting the local breweries. I noticed that a big seller was cream ale—both Gladstone Brewing and Land & Sea Brewing were serving it as fast as they could make it. Even Dave Paul’s nano-operation Love Shack Libations in Qualicum keeps a cream ale as one of his four core beers.Issue: Winter 2020-21

Three years ago, I traveled up the Sunshine Coast to Powell River across to Courtenay in the Comox Valley, and then south to Victoria, stopping at every brewery along my route. Since then, several new breweries have opened in the mid- and North Island, so it was time for a re-visit.Issue: Summer 2019
