NABC in Douglas Wissing's “Indiana: One Pint at a Time” book.

Indiana craft brewers must be brewing something right, because numerous books are being written about beer in the Hoosier State.

First up: Rita Kohn and "True Brew" in New Albany on August 7th. You buy it, she signs it, and we'll all enjoy a Progressive Pint.

But there's more to come.

New Albany brewery praised in Indiana brewery book; Author of ‘One Pint at a Time’ coming to New Albany Sept. 18, by Daniel Suddeath (Tribune).

NEW ALBANY — The latest book published by the Indiana Historical Society Press features the New Albanian Brewing Co.

“Indiana: One Pint at a Time” was written by Douglas Wissing, of Bloomington, and focuses on craft breweries throughout the state, while also paying homage to the roots of Indiana brewing, which date back to 1816. Located at 415 Bank Street, NABC’s Bank Street Brewhouse and its Public House and Pizzeria at 3312 Plaza Drive receive some ink from Wissing.
I contributed an awkward quote to this story, using the word "cared" sloppily. My intent was to contrast what's I've perceived as Doug's more comprehensive historical approach with Rita's "as it is now oral history" overview. Apologies if my words mislead; inelegance typically ensues when one is harried and hurried. I expect both books to be great, and I'm looking forward to a third, by John Holl, slated for publication next spring.

As noted in the Tribune article title, Doug's coming to the NABC Pizzeria & Public House on Saturday, September 18, for a discussion and book signing. Further information will be forthcoming. You can purchase the books then, or see Destinations Booksellers in New Albany, our co-sponsor for the signing.
