Earlier this week, I was lucky enough to get a box of brewing-related books from Arcadia Publishing. Since I can’t possibly review all six books, I’m going to give five of them away!
Arcadia Publishing is the leading local history publisher in the United States, with a catalog of more than 6,000 titles in print. Arcadia is best known for its popular Images of America series, which chronicles the history of communities from Bangor, Maine, to Manhattan Beach, California. With more than two hundred vintage black-and-white photographs, each title celebrates a town or region, bringing to life the people, places, and events that define the community.
In terms of beer-related books, Arcadia has published a number of local histories; each focuses on either a single brewery or a region’s brewing history. For this contest, the winners will get to pick from a number of books about brewing in New England, Ohio and Pennsylvania.
To enter the contest, simply leave a comment to this post naming your favorite brewery (or winery or distillery, if you’re so inclined). If you’d like to double your chances to win, tweet “RT @jchristie Enter to win free beer books from BrewsAndBooks.com at http://is.gd/ehy3h” and you’ll be entered in the contest a second time.
The winner of this contest will receive their pick of three of the following books;
Straub Brewery by John E. Schlimm II
Brewing in Cleveland by Robert A. Musson
Brewing in New Hampshire by Glenn A. Knoblock and James T. Gunter
Nashville Brewing by Scott R. Mertie, Patricia Gerst Benson and John J. Gerst Sr.
Narragansett Brewing Company by Hazel B. Turley
Cincinnati’s Brewing History by Sarah Stephens
Additionally, a runner-up will get their choice of any two of the three remaining titles. A review of whatever book is left will go up on Brews And Books soon.
The winner will be chosen randomly at midnight EST on Monday evening (August 16th). This contest is open to residents of the United States and Canada.
