Pennsylvania Breweries 4th Edition – Lew Bryson

07 October 2010

LewBrew On Sept 21st local beer author, beer historian, beer connoisseur, beer drinker, and my buddy, Lew Bryson, released his book  Pennsylvania Breweries 4th edition.  Lew was nice enough to send me a copy (full disclosure), and I’ve really been enjoying the read.  For those unfamiliar, PA Breweries is Lew’s 4th edition of this great beer resource and features the breweries, brewpubs, beer bars, beer destinations and even local attractions from the lovely state of PA.

Lew selflessly managed to perform the arduous task of visiting breweries, brewpubs and beer bars to methodically sample the many brews they have to offer, and even somehow managed to not only remember everything, but also turn it into a well organized book.  PA Breweries is an absolute encyclopedia for the PA beer lover, and a fantastic reference source for anyone exploring the brewing resources in PA.

Pennsylvania has a very rich brewing history and Lew also does a great job of giving us the historical flavor for many of our breweries, and really paints the picture for how each brewery got to where they are (or are not) today.  I’m also really excited to see all of our local NEPA brewers and bar owners gaining the recognition they so deserve. 

And finally I’d be telling a lie if I didn't say I was excited to see my name and my humble blog getting a mention in Pennsylvania Breweries 4th edition.  I had a lot of fun discussing our local breweries and beer businesses with Lew so the mention in his book was icing on the cake.  Thanks again Lew.

Lew’s book is available on Amazon, and Lew will be making the rounds signing copies at various locations over the next few months so be sure to pick up a copy for yourself.
