Author Talk with Carey Kish “Beer Hiking New England”
To create this diverse ensemble, the author, Carey Kish, traveled over 300 miles on foot and tasted more than 230 different beers to bring readers this great selection of hikes and brews. This full-color guidebook showcases a wide variety of fun beer hikes in Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Rhode Island, from easy walks to moderate rambles and strenuous climbs. Each hike leads through stunning scenery and features a nearby brewery or a brewpub where a refreshing local craft beer awaits. Hike descriptions include details on access, difficulty, duration, points of interest, history, and, at trail’s end, a recommended beer with notes on its appearance, aroma, and taste. You’ll also get an insider’s look at each brewery and their creative and passionate craftspeople.
