Craft Beer for the Homebrewer {GIVEAWAY}

A few months ago I was contacted by a publisher who’d seen some photos of mine and wanted to put them in a book about clone recipes for homebrewers. Um, okey!
AMYesterday I saw a tweet by the Beertographer (check out his photos, by the way. Absolutely beautiful beer porn) that his copies had just arrived. I lamented back in a tweet.
Screen shot 2014-02-07 at 8.24.02 AMSeconds after I posted that, a knock came at the door.
AM1“Didja hear dat?”
AM2“What dat? Who dat?”
AM3Well, my sweet Barleywhine, that’s called a book. It’s got about 40ish recipes from a bunch of high profile breweries.
AM7Cigar City, which I haven’t yet had a chance to visit or try.
AM9Rogue Ales, which I’ve been fortunate enough to taste, but not visit. Yet.
AM8Stone Brewing which I’ve visited, tasted, taken a test at, fallen in love with…
AM10The Bruery, which I’ve visited, tasted, re-taken a test at (rawr) and fallen in love with…
AM4And also a handful of smaller breweries like Funkwerks!
AM5Sorry, I still can’t get over seeing my name in another published book. Insert smiley face here.

    Alesmith fo sho. BA Speedway Stout! Equinox up in FTC is a close second. Love their Imperial Hefeweizen when they brew that since it is so unique and damn tasty. Almost 10% ABV is a bonus.

    Alright, so I now also follow you on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram. Want that book please! 🙂

  9. Damien Romo

    Big Island Imperial IPA from Island Brewing Company in Carpinteria. If you are lucky enough to have the bourbon barrel aged version it is also a treat.

    Favorite beer & brewery? Man, that’s a tough choice…there are so many good ones, especially in Colorado. I’m gonna have to go with Breckenridge Brewery. Not only do they serve several great beers, but the food is excellent and they’re in a great location. My favorite beer is their vanilla porter.

  25. Golden Road Brewing – Better Weather IPA. Best “winter warmer” ever!
