A New York Times Best Seller

A full-color, lushly illustrated graphic novel that recounts the many-layered past and present of beer through dynamic pairings of pictures and meticulously researched insight into the history of the world’s favorite brew.

The History of Beer Comes to Life!

We drink it. We love it. But how much do we really know about beer? Starting from around 7000 BC, beer has emerged as a major element driving humankind’s development, a role it has continued to play through today’s craft brewing explosion. With The Comic Book Story of Beer, the first-ever nonfiction graphic novel focused on this most favored beverage, you can follow along from the very beginning, as authors Jonathan Hennessey and Mike Smith team up with illustrator Aaron McConnell to present the key figures, events, and, yes, beers that shaped and frequently made history. No boring, old historical text here, McConnell’s versatile art style—moving from period-accurate renderings to cartoony diagrams to historical caricatures and back—finds an equal and effective partner in the pithy, informative text of Hennessey and Smith presented in captions and word balloons on each page. The end result is a filling mixture of words and pictures sure to please the beer aficionado and comics geek alike.

Important News Re: Great American Beer Festival – GABF – What’s Going On This Year?

great american beer festival

From the Brewer’s Association:

Let’s Come Together for a Totally New Kind of #GABF

By now you’ve probably heard the news. We won’t be able to gather in person in Denver this fall and celebrate the wonderful world of craft beer together.
Here’s What We’re Gonna Do

We couldn’t possibly miss a year of bringing our community together, so this year, we’re not only going to meet in spirit, but virtually and locally as we bring the Great American Beer Festival (GABF) to you through a nationwide “passport” program.
Between October 1-18, Great American Beer Festival passport holders will have exclusive access to beery deals at participating festival breweries nationwide, and access to online content during the virtual festival October 16-17.

Join the American Homebrewers Association (AHA) and save $5 on the tee + passport combo. Find your promo code in your AHA account after you join.
Offer valid through July 10.


If you’re not a member of the American Homebrewer’s Association, I think you should consider joining – Here’s Why.  Membership in the AHA has many benefits including pre-sale access to Great American Beer Festival tickets.  GABF tickets regularly sell out and usually quickly.  Pre-Sale access is a big benefit and helps you increase your chances of getting into the festival.  Join or renew your AHA Membership
