Coming in 2012: A new book about North Carolina Beer and Breweries

 

You know what I needed? More to do.

Brewery startup is a lot more work than I necessarily expected, even if most of that work is filling out paperwork and chasing down equipment. So, naturally, when I got a message asking if I was interested in writing a book about North Carolina Beer and Breweries I said, “Sure – why not? What else do I have to do?”

Starting this summer, I’ll be traveling to every brewery in the beautiful state of North Carolina to get the low down – how they started, who they are, what they make, and how they make it.

The goal?

Next spring you can hold in your hot little hands a comprehensive guide to beer in North Carolina, with maps, pictures, and a suite of factoids and tidbits about where to buy beer in NC, the best, most popular beer festivals, and even some information about where to get good local cider and mead, and local food to go with your awesome local NC Beer.

What’s more? While I’m doing these travels, I’ll be taking the blog with me. So while the book will be the information source, you can get my personal take on the whole piece here, where I hope to be able to inspire some of you to get out to a local brewery in North Carolina and see it for yourself.

Finally, I would be remiss if I didn’t send a huge, nay, enormous thank you to the good Beerinator Jonathan Surratt who pointed this opportunity my way. Sir, I owe you many a beer, and here it is on public record.

Thanks also go to John F. Blair, Publisher of Winston-Salem, NC who is publishing the book.

Look for more soon! Travels start in the next couple of weeks!

    I’ve followed you on Twitter for a while, but have somehow never made it to your site before now. As someone who has just moved to NC (Winston-Salem to be exact), I’ve been eager to set a similar goal of visiting all of NC’s breweries. I look forward to following your progress and reading the book. Cheers!

    Nonetheless, since universal term life insurance premiums are generally flexible, it sometimes could be the cheaper with the two.

    The particular potential disadvantages

    Whole life insurance comes with its drawbacks.One is it’s mainly not possible to ensure a speed of roi so it might just not shell out the dividends you anticipate.Another matter worth writing is that your whole everyday life policy wont have an important cash importance until at the least 3 or simply 5 years when you surrender typically the policy upbeat, expect it being costly.

    The controversy rages on concerning whether it’s wise for everybody, regardless of age, gender or perhaps marital rank, to order anything except the cheapest term life insurance policy.

    Some critics believe if one took the actual money you would pay during premiums and even instead put into the account it in a savings bank account or several other low-risk curiosity bearing accounts, you’d accumulate more benefits.True or perhaps not, whole life will be an option some people do benefit from.

    And though it is probably not the cheapest way of life insurance policy, it does manage to meet the requirements of folks that purchase the application.
