Pennsylvania Breweries 4 done with edits

I just finished up the edits on Pennsylvania Breweries 4. I'm donating a copy to a homebrew contest as a prize (to be mailed in September) and wrote this description for a prize certificate: it sounded so good I thought I'd share it:

This latest edition has 74 breweries, almost 300 of the best bars in the state, lodging suggestions, nearby attractions for the road-tripping beer traveler, some history, and Lew’s rambling entertainments on brewing, craft beers, Pennsylvania regional food, the state’s best beer fests, and more. The 4th edition is 50% bigger than the 3rd, and almost entirely new material.

Damn! I want to read that myself! It really is almost all new material, too. I'd say it's more than 85% new. This is not just the 3rd edition with new breweries.

I'm looking forward to reading it Lew. I'm thirsty for a beer just thinking about it.

Does this make my first edition a collectors item? What do 1st edition bryson's fetch on ebay?

Lew Bryson said...

Two bucks, I think.

I've got to admit...I own the first two but never ponied up for vol. 3, though I can't tell you why. Number four is definitely on the list.

You're glad to have this one in the rearview, I'll bet!
