Read Local, Drink Local 2 with Pretty Things and Joshua Bernstein

The second installment of our Read Local, Drink Local event series approaches. In September, Norman Miller presented Beer Lover’s New England, Slumbrew tasted their entire line of delicious beer, and both answered questions about beer making, buying, and tasting. Our second event is on Friday, October 26th at 7pm with Pretty Things Beer and Ale Project and Joshua Bernstein, author of Brewed Awakening.

Pretty Things Beer and Ale Project are tenant brewers, meaning that they work in a rented brewery space, which they take over on brewdays. Their flagship beer is Jack D’Or. Jack is the mournful grain of barley you can see to the left. He is the soul of beer, nature’s magician, creating sugar from starch and bringing together the Pretty Things to produce the substance they adore: beer. They brew good time, artisanal beers - unfiltered, unfettered and oblivious to prevailing tastes. Their beers are happy peasants: inspired by ancient ruins and European beer cultures. All of Their beers are formulated and brewed by Dann Paquette, with help from his wife Martha: they are a small, family producer of excellent beers!

Joshua M. Bernstein has written for dozens of magazines, newspapers, and websites, including the New York Times, the New York Daily News,, Forbes Traveler, New York magazine, and Time Out New York. He has written a column for the New York Press for seven years and is a beer features writer for Imbibe. He is currently the beer columnist for AOL's “Slashfood.” Brewed Awakening is his first book.

Visit the official event page for attendance information. If you’re interested in attending, make sure we have enough beer by pre-ordering a copy of the featured book. The third and final event will be on November 9th with Cambridge Brewing Company and John Holl, author of Massachusetts Breweries.
