Brewed Awakening Book Events & Giveaway

Joshua Bernstein, author of Brewed Awakening, will be making a couple of stops in Minnesota this week for a couple of events. Joshua interviewed me a few years ago for a piece on up and coming craft beer cities for Imbibe magazine and edited appropriately so I didn’t sound stupid, so he must be a good guy, right? In any case, Brewed Awakening is his take on the craft beer revolution and features several Minnesota breweries. (See below).

Plus, just because we love you, if you leave a comment regarding your own “brewed awakening,” we’ll pick one winner at random and shoot them a copy of Joshua’s book. Be sure to include a valid email (don’t worry, it doesn’t get posted or shared) for a chance to win.

Additionally, here’s a link to the info on my website:

    Sherlocks Home. I’d probably have a less formidable gut if they had not been such an important catalyst in my love for craft beer.

  2. Rob says:

    I really didn’t get into craft beer until an buddy and I decided to get a group of guys together for a beer tasting party. I read about the idea in a magazine and it has been some of the most fun I have had, both in the actual events and the research. Truly the starting point for me into craft beer.

  3. rob says:

    I gave myself a gift of Beer Across America in the early 90’s.

  4. Gary says:

    In the late 70’s discovering, via Point Bock, that there beers that have flavors different than the traditional yellow stuff. What a long strange trip it has been since then.

  5. Aubrey says:

    My dad began home brewing about the time I was old enough to start drinking beer. It became an activity we could enjoy together and opened up the world of beer.

  6. Ben says:

    Todd Haug’s brews at Rock Bottom days after my 21st b-day. Eric The Red and Itasca Pale Ale in particular at first.
