Tomorrow’s issue of the Straight is all about BEER and we’ve got an early flight of its articles today


Every Wednesday our friends at The Georgia Straight give us something new to share with you here on the blog: a preview of what you’ll see on the front of – and inside – their paper the next day. As you likely already know, they’re the source for lifestyle and entertainment stories in Vancouver. Along with their robust online presence they release a printed publication which is distributed all over Vancouver each Thursday.


This issue is the 2,422nd and its theme is beer! Articles on the business of brewing, expert picks, pairing beverages with food, and recipes for drinkers. HERE is a portal to some of the features and below are some links to stories featured on the cover, which you can check out before you grab the physical paper:
