What: Selling and signing my book, The Canadian Craft Beer Cookbook, as part of the Barley’s Angels Holiday Market with lots of other great vendors.
Where: The Rhino, 1249 Queen St. W., Parkdale
When: 14 December, 4 – 7 PM
Other Details: Copies of my cookbook will be for sale and I’m more than happy to sign them. I take cash or credit cards.
Women are an undeniably important part of craft beer’s success in the slow mission to chip market share away from macro-breweries. There is something about emphasizing quality over crude marketing that seems to bring those who were previously excluded into beer’s crazy carnival tent. Barley’s Angels and their events are at the core of Toronto’s female beer-drinking community.
I’m impressed by the list of other vendors who will be out at the Rhino on the 14th — not all of them with books either. If all that weren’t enough, there is also the top-notch beer selection at Parkdale’s oldest craft watering hole to keep everyone well libated.
Admission to the event is free. There is a Facebook page here where you can indicate the chances of you showing up. I think I’ve covered all the details, but just in case, here is the page the organisers have put together.
