If you haven't yet, now is a perfect time to order your copy of The Fermented Man through Amazon or Barnes & Noble, or to saunter on down to your local bookstore and pick up a copy there.

Undoubtedly, after you have hungrily devoured The Fermented Man in one sitting like a person coming off of an arbitrary meta-diet and experiencing guacamole again for the first time in a year, you might have some questions. Things that come to mind that you wish to discuss with me. Given that I am absolutely terrible at responding to emails, what means of exploring these questions could be left to you? How about asking me in person, at one of the many events I will be hosting / attending this summer to promote the book? My busy calendar includes everything from Kent Falls beer nights at fine drinking establishments, to fermented food and beer pairings, to bookstore speaking engagements, to a fermentation workshop on the world's largest rooftop farm, to fermentation festivals, to a hop harvest festival, to me keeling over in a parking lot from exhaustion.

August 12 - Burial Beer, Asheville, NC
We will be in Asheville to brew a collab beer with the fine folks at Burial. On Friday evening, stop by Burial to pick up a copy of The Fermented Man. I'll be signing books, answering questions, and any books purchased will come a beer token, in case reading about my fermented experiences wasn't incentive enough.
