Howe Sound Brewery's Head Brewer, Franco Corno, said that "with the growth in craft breweries, the flavors and tastes in the brewing industry are evolving at a fast rate. When brewers and the public can get together to share and compare different brews it adds to the whole artisan feel of the industry. It is important to showcase the distinctive and unique brews that other breweries are offering. There are twenty different breweries coming which has increased from last year and tells a story of the growth of the craft beer movement." BC breweries continue to grow and perform well on the Canadian and international scene and it is incredible to see local beers with a cross section of diverse styles and categories.
