Who’s Betty? “Betty” is any woman who makes, sells or enjoys beer. Betty is a good time. I and a bunch of other Bettys had a blast at the first Betty’s Beer Fest in Waitsfield, VT a couple weeks ago. All the beer came from New England breweries where women play a prominent role. Meg Schultz of Meg’s Events was our excellent organizer and host, and the awesome Big Picture Theater was the perfect venue. Not to mention the fact that we were in gorgeous northern Vermont. I suggest you get tickets to next year’s fest.

All About Beer review of Crafty Bastards

Check out Jim Baumer’s review of Crafty Bastards in the March 2015 issue of All About Beer magazine, which is celebrating its 35th birthday. My fave bit: “Throughout this historic romp, the author deftly crams in as many tidbits as possible while weaving an engaging narrative, avoiding the stuffy tone that often accompanies history books.”

Remember when the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth in December 1620 because they were low on beer? Seriously. Let's discuss over a beer at the Mayflower Brewery in Plymouth this Sunday 1:00-3:00.
