A year ago today, sometime around 8pm, I stopped into Powell’s Books in downtown Portland and located The Beer Bible on the “new releases” shelves. To my joy, there was only one copy left. Not bad for the first day of sales!
It’s been a pretty good year for the book. Sales have been brisk, the Cicerone Program added it to their list of recommended reading, and it won an apparently prestigious IACP award. I try to refrain from flogging the book too much, but allow me to do so on this one-year anniversary. If you haven’t picked up a copy, consider doing so. I guarantee that you’ll find at least some new tidbit in there you haven’t encountered before, and I really do think it’s a good reference. (I think this because I have a crap memory for details, and so I end up pulling it out on a fairly regular basis.) Consider buying one for the whole family!
I’d also like to thank everyone out there who said kind words, bought a copy, or was otherwise supportive and kind. I can’t tell you how many of you I’ve encountered, and you’ve all been wonderful. I hope the ride never ends–
