Brews & Books!

Join us for a new series: Brews & Books! We’re meeting with Joe Wiebe, author of Craft Beer Revolution!

Victoria-based author Joe Wiebe tells the story of BC’s craft beer revolution, from its origins in nearby Horseshoe Bay in the early 1980s to the current boom that has seen 100 new breweries open in the past 5 years alone! From Growlers to Hazy IPAs and everything in between, Joe will answer your questions about craft beer and a few you didn’t know to ask!

Joe Wiebe is the "Thirsty Writer" and author of Craft Beer Revolution: The Insider’s Guide to B.C. Breweries (Douglas & McIntyre). He chats about craft beer on CBC Radio, and is co-founder and producer of Victoria Beer Week and co-founder and Director of Content for the BC Ale Trail.
