“The Oxford Companion to Beer” Book Launch with Garret Oliver!
The suave sophistication of New York meets the dapper practicality of Chicago as two thought leaders of the American craft beer scene discuss the world of beer and the newly-released landmark publication Oxford Companion to Beer while tasting their favorite brews.
New Yorker Garret Oliver is the brewmaster at Brooklyn Brewing, author of The Brewmaster’s Table and editor of the first Oxford Companion to Beer which is being released this fall.
Chicagoan Ray Daniels is the founder and director of the Cicerone Certification Program, author of Designing Great Beers and other books and a contributor to the Oxford Companion to Beer.
Join us as these two entertaining and highly knowledgeable beer experts talk about what it was like to compile a book that lays claim to being the world’s most comprehensive resource on the subject of beer. In addition to sharing their thoughts, they’ll take your questions about beer, brewing and what it takes to make it in the beer world today.
This event will take place in the upstairs bar at Hopleaf, and is free to the public. Copies of the Oxford Companion to Beer will be available for purchase.
