Best in BC

with 2 comments

I often get asked what my favourite beer is, and a lot of folk are honestly confused when I say that I don’t actually have one. My favourite beer changes with my mood, and as new beers become available. But I do have a list of beers that I constantly go back to, and a few breweries that I automatically associate with “Good Beer.” Here is that list. I will add it to the sidebar and occasionally update it as things progress.

Best Beer in BC: Driftwood Sartori

Note that I have not included Imperials in the list above as I would have become tired of typing “Howe Sound.” There are some exceptions, but HS wins most categories, simply by virtual of being the only producer of that type of imperial. Also note there are some missing categories, this is because I have not come to a conclusion on every conceivable style of ale.

  2. Let’s make a deal. Keep making good beers, and I’ll keep dragging people to the LDB to buy them.
