Flex-grow vs Bootstrap columns?
Given the flexibility that flex-grow brings for building responsive layouts, is it a better solution and practice and use this property instead of combining Bootstrap columns with media queries?
When would you recommend to use one solution versus another one?

Try not to pick a fight with your framework.
When using a framework like Bootstrap, you should try to always do thing the "Bootstrap way". Otherwise you risk introducing some compatibility issues. I think the newer version of Bootstrap might use flexbox internally, but that's just incidental. The important thing is that Bootstrap provides its own column-based layout system using special class names, and you should stick to that if you're using Bootstrap at all.
On the other hand, if you're working without a framework, then flexbox is an extremely useful tool and has excellent browser support.
