I can’t believe I’m typing this, but this weekend will mark the last event in our book tour, at least for a while. And fittingly, it’s going to start the same way it began, with a “Books on Tap” discussion moderated by Jeremy Cowan, owner of Shmaltz Brewing.
In February we joined esteemed fellow authors John Holl and Joshua M. Bernstein at The Strand Bookstore in Manhattan for a “Books on Tap” panel event celebrating New York City Beer Week, moderated by Cowan. It was one of the first events we participated in to promote our book, Beer Lover’s New York.
Since then we’ve traveled across New York State, visiting breweries, talking to beer fans, and of course selling books. We retraced our steps from last summer, in a way, visiting many of the same places as we did when we conducted our book research.
You’ve probably noticed it’s been a bit quiet around BeerUnion, and for that we apologize. Along with our book tour there have been a couple of changes in our lives that have taken us away from what we love to do most: write about beer.
So as we close out our book tour, we wanted to thank you for sticking with us as we’ve been juggling all sorts of things behind the scenes. We’re going to be writing a lot more in the weeks and months to come.
And this Sunday, August 3rd, we’ll be up in Clifton Park, from 2 to 3:30 p.m., for Books on Tap at Shmaltz Brewing, talking about beer and beer writing, and sampling some great brews. Tickets are here. Food will come from The Ruck, an awesome craft beer bar in Troy. We hope to see you there!
