The Brewed Awakening, has laid out a listing of some of the craft beer establishments that have caught their eye for 2014 and lift their glass towards a Prince Rupert establishment.
As part of a review of the explosion in craft beer production in BC from last year and looking ahead to 2014, author Jan Zeschky outlines that thirteen new establishments are set to join the nine of last year in a grabbing their share of the competitive marketplace.
By Zeschky's count that brings the number of craft breweries in BC to Seventy six operations, a collection with as many different themes as they have product lines.
The list takes us over a wide range of BC's geography, from the Okanagan to Vancouver Island and up into NorthWestern British Columbia.
Locations where the breweries are setting up shop in both small towns and larger cities.
