Brews & Books
Introducing our newest book group, Brews & Books, which meets the first Thursday of each month at 6:30. What makes the group so unique is the fact that it does not meet at the library, but instead will meet at various locations in the community. Each month the group will meet at a different place, such as Freebridge, Route 30, Sedition, and Clock Tower Ales. The meeting on July 6th will be at Freebridge Brewing. The book they will be discussing is The drunken botanist, by Amy Stewart. Sake began with a grain of rice. Scotch emerged from barley, tequila from agave, rum from sugarcane, bourbon from corn. Thirsty yet? In The Drunken Botanist, Amy Stewart explores the dizzying array of herbs, flowers, trees, fruits, and fungi that humans have, through ingenuity, inspiration, and sheer desperation, contrived to transform into alcohol over the centuries.
