Beer Bible Book Launch
Tuesday, August 11, 5-7 pm (some comments at 6 pm)
Belmont Station, 4500 SE Stark
On Tuesday, August 11, the Beer Bible will officially go on sale. We will celebrate this milestone with a celebration at Belmont Station, where you can buy the book and where I will gladly sign it. I’ll plan to say a few words around 6 pm, but I’ll be signing books from five onward–so come early if you can and pick up a copy of the book. Belmont Station is hosting this event for free (thanks, guys!), so consider enjoying a delicious beer when you come. I suspect there will be some toasting going on sometime a bit after six.
For those of you who have been following this odyssey, you know how much the book has dominated the last four years of my life. It’s been odd to have such a huge presence that is essentially known only to me. Finally, finally, I get to share this thing, and I really hope you consider buying a copy, even if you can’t make it to the launch. Whether you like it or not, at least you will finally see it. I look forward to hearing your thoughts, good, bad, snarky, corrective, thoughtful–all of it will be great.
If you can’t make the launch, it won’t be your last opportunity. I’ll be doing an event on August 31 at the Cedar Hills Powell’s. In addition, next week I’ll be elsewhere in the state. On Thursday, August 13, I’ll be in Corvallis from 6:30-8:30 with Nick Arzner at the new Block 15 Taproom (3415 SW Deschutes Ave). Nick was a great advisor before I went to Belgium, and I will be pleased to see the new place and have a conversation about beer with Nick before another signing there. That should be a cool event.
On Saturday, August 15, I’ll be visiting Ninkasi Brewing in Eugene (272 Van Buren St) from noon-1:30pm. Jamie Floyd has been a regular source of insight and information since he was at Steelhead back in the 1990s, and this feels a bit like a homecoming. Please join us for that if you’re in Eugene.
In case you haven’t seen my 219 posts about this book, here’s a quickie backgrounder. Hope to see you next week–
