What a great-looking cover, eh?

Buy these books!
Pennsylvania Breweries was one of the best-reviewed brewery guidebooks ever published in America. And why not: I took the best ideas from every brewery guide book I'd ever read and then added a lot more, like lodging suggestions, local attractions for the family beer traveler, and reviews of bars near the breweries for killing that post-tour thirst. It worked so well, I didn't change a thing for New York Breweries; you'll find the same deep information here.

Stan and Daria at www.beertravelers.com liked that: ""It is an amazingly up-to-date guide that not only has plenty of details about the breweries ... but that also acknowledges there is life beyond the brewery walls."*

Then I stirred it all together with my easy-reading style. As Great Lakes Brewing News said, "itís the down-to-earth, conversational tone of his descriptions and reviews that draws a reader in. While reading this book, I felt like I was listening to a beer buddy talk."

 New York Breweries is even better; my editor trusted the appeal of my style more this time, and I think it came out great. (Jack Curtin agrees!, and so do Rick Armon and Patrick Flanigan of the Rochester Democrat & Chronicle) I have every reason to believe that this book will be even better received than Pennsylvania Breweries.

Every brewery entry has phone and Web info, a map (my dad's idea), and info on hours, tours, food (if applicable), parking, and notes about kids, handicapped access, and vegan-friendliness. There are also those lodging, attractions, and bar suggestions, along with a narrative to give you a good feel for the place. 

*See what Stan and Daria had to say about the second edition: they really liked it!

Wow, another great-looking cover!

Buy a signed copy direct!

When you buy direct from me, I make a lot more, so I can sell it for less. For $17 I'll send you a signed copy of New York Breweries or Pennsylvania Breweries (for $34 you can get one of each!), postage included. There's just one catch: I can currently only accept checks or money orders (I'm working on credit cards), so we have to work through the mail. (Yes, I did have to raise my price to the list price. Postage went up, mailers went up, gas went up...the books went up. Sorry!)

Send me a check for $17 for each book ordered (PA residents, sorry, but it's gotta be $18.02 with the tax) or $15 plus $2 shipping for the PA Breweries video (PA-volk pay $15.90 plus $2). Enclose the following:

  1. Clearly printed instructions on which book(s) you want -- or the video -- and whose name(s) you want me to sign it/them for.

  2. Your e-mail address (for when I have to ask questions about your clearly printed instructions).

  3. Any suggestions you have for dedication (e.g., "Bob's a homebrewer, so say something about his beer," or "Jane really loves Yuengling!")

  4. Very important: your address.

  5. Don't forget the check!

Click on this image to buy it at Amazon if you just can't wait to own this amazing masterpiece...but I do make a lot more when you buy it direct!

Already have a copy? 

Getting it signed is as easy as pie. Just mail it to me at the address below in a box, padded envelope, or other re-usable mailer.

Enclose the following:

  1. The book(s)
  2. Clearly printed instructions on whose name you want me to sign it for.
  3. Your e-mail address (for when I have to ask questions about your clearly printed instructions).
  4. Any suggestions you have for dedication (e.g., "Bob's a homebrewer, so say something about his beer," or "Jane really loves Yuengling!")
  5. Three $1 bills per book (Don't send change!). If your mailer is re-usable, I'll send a buck back with each book (the other two are to cover postage and handling); if it's trashed, I'll have to buy another mailer. If you don't send the three bucks, I guess I'd just have to keep the book until you do.
