The Great Northeast Brewery Tour
By Ben Keene
Voyageur Press, January 2014, $24.99

The West Coast may have C-hops growing in their backyard, but the Northeast knows a little something about terroir, too. Only in New England, for example, could you get a Maple Kissed Wheat Porter, courtesy of Throwback Brewery. And what better place to sip a Not Your Average Gourd from Maryland’s Burley Oak, made with squash, vanilla and toasted pumpkin seeds, but on the coast where Thanksgiving started? In this book, Keene’s brewery profiles are accompanied by gorgeous photos from Bethany Bandera, and they beckon the reader to take a craft beer tour of the Northeast, where you can count the authentic Queen Anne homes en route to Cape May Brewing Co. in New Jersey, and gawk at the Steelers tattoos on the crowd at Pittsburgh’s East End Brewing. Keene also helps readers make the most of their time in each place, with recommendations for nearby museums, historic sites, and sports & recreation options. So you can have your Crossroads Lighthouse American Wheat, and tour the lighthouse, too.
