The first weekend of June kicked off a busy week of book touring; a portend of what is yet to come for us this Summer.
First up, on June 2 we had the pleasure of participating in the Davis Beer Fest benefiting Citizens Who Care. Held beneath an overpass at Sudwerk Brewing, it was the perfect antidote to a warm day. As we spread the word about beer travel and introduced people to Teachings From The Tap, approximately 1,000 beer lovers enjoyed some amazing brews.
Morgan Cox with Ale Industries served up Orange Kush, a refreshing beverage for the warm weather. Steve Altimari and his wife Barri from Highwater Brewing offered the ever popular Hop Riot and their recent release, Berliner Reisse. Russian River was also present and even donated 2 magnum bottles of Consecration for a silent auction. We kept an eye on those bottles all afternoon, as they were on a table right across from us. At one point, a large beach ball was bouncing around the fest. We watched in horror when the ball hit one of the bottles not once, but twice! Luckily, a volunteer with quick reflexes stepped in to offer protection and a crisis was averted! Good friends, awesome beer, and high drama, what else could you ask for in a beer festival?
We followed that up with two book signings; one at Post No Bills and the other at the Independent Marketplace, both in Sand City. Since the book has been out for several weeks now, people are starting to give me feedback and I am happy to report that it has all been positive. Thanks so much for all the support and encouragement!
