My discovery of the Growler

I first discovered Growlers at Green Leaf Brewery in North Vancouver early 2014. It was the first time I saw something so cool for beer. Immediately I needed to buy one and fill it up with the delicious Bitter Leaf IPA.

Since then I have been on a mission to explore different local breweries and add to my growler collection.

The great thing about them is that they cost around $5 to purchase and you can bring them to any brewery to refill with what they have on tap. You just need to wash them out before.

It might cost between $8 to $15 per refill for 64 fluid ounces or 1.89 litres of beer. While at the breweries you can get a flight to taste the beers that are available and choose the right one to take home. Plenty of craft beer deliciousness.

Hello Beermaid followers!

Hello everyone my name is Catherine, I am Canadian and live in Sydney Australia with my Fiance and our son Seth. When I first started this blog we were living in Vancouver Canada where we were exploring many different breweries and to try new local beer and beer cocktails.

I enjoy a variety of beers from lagers, beer cocktails to more hoppier IPAs and flavoured beers such as Ginger Beer, Ales and whatever is in the taster flight!

I also enjoy cooking delicious Mexican food as I lived in Mexico for 7 years.

I work in the Catering Industry organizing Events, Conferences and Weddings. Soon I will be planning our own wedding.


Hopefully you will enjoy my blog about Beer, Mexican Food, Cooking and and maybe some other fun topics 🙂
