on the way!
After years of people asking "When are you going to do New Jersey Breweries?", and jokes about a pamphlet or a slip-in addition to Pennsylvania Breweries 4th edition, I am pleased to announce that New Jersey Breweries is underway. I have signed a contract with Stackpole Books to do the book, along with my co-author for this project, Mark Haynie.
I'm sure many of you know Mark Haynie. Mark is a New Jersey native and well-known beer-lover who has had his writing published in many of the same publications I've been in. Like me, Mark is a founding member of the New Jersey Association of Beerwriters, and knows one hell of a lot more about the Garden State than I do.
We're faced with a problem on the book, of course: there are only about 20 breweries in New Jersey. Not to worry: we've come up with plenty of ways to give you your money's worth, including a couple of real surprises. Every book in this series has been an improvement on the preceeding books, and this will be no exception. Look for it in the fall of 2008...I think. Scheduling is always a bit iffy!
