If the first alcoholic beverage that comes to mind when you think of Kentucky is bourbon, well, you’re not alone. While we know the good people of Kentucky know their way around a mint julep, we’re also pretty sure they dig craft beer, especially when it’s being poured by Brewmaster Oliver. On February 14th and 15th, Garrett will be bringing all his expertise (plus a whole lot of beer) to the Bluegrass State. Check out the entire schedule, below:

February 14th
5-6:30pm: Mini Tap Attack/Meet & Greet @ Pazzo’s Pizza Pub. Pazzo’s will be running five lines of Brooklyn beer, and Garrett will be hanging out to answer all you beer questions.

7-8:30pm: Beer Dinner @ The Village Idiot. This event, led by Garrett and featuring some very special brews, is perfect for a Valentine’s Day dinner (or, you know, treating yourself). 

9pm: Book Signing & Tap Attack @ The Beer Trappe. The Oxford Companion to Beer is the definitive guide to beer, and not only can you get your hands on it, but you can even get Garrett to sign it while you sip on some Kriek.

February 15th
10am-5pm: Craft Writing: Beer, The Digital, & Craft Culture @ University of Kentucky. The speakers of this event are a stacked group–Garrett, Teri Fahrendorf, Mitch Steele, and more–and they all want to teach you how to write about craft beer. Oh, did we mention it’s free and open to the public? Don’t miss out.

6-9pm: Tap Attack & Book Signing @ Liquor Barn Towne Center. This is your chance to say hey to Garrett, and get our latest release, Wild Streak–we know it won’t be staying on the shelves long, so get it before it’s gone!
