“I like beer!”
“I like books!”
“I like Missouri!”
Any of these sound like you? Then you’ll love the University of Missouri Press’s new Beers & Books festival. Inspired by this evening’s BrewReview from the University Concert Series, we’ve searched Columbia to find the perfect beers to complement a multitude of books from our collection.
While the brewing origins range from as close by as Columbia’s own Rock Bridge Brewing to as far away as the Hofbräu München brewery in Munich, Germany, each and every beer on our list can be found right here in Columbia. Whether it is at your local Schnucks, HyVee, or the brand new International Taphouse downtown, the makings of a perfect book and beer pairing can be found right outside your door.
Whether you feel like grabbing a Piney River Float Trip Ale and joining Oliver Schuchard & Steve Kohler for a journey down the Current and the Jacks Fork Rivers in Two Ozark Rivers or raising a Prost! (Cheers!) to Missouri’s vast German heritage with Adolf E. Schroeder and Carla Schulz-Geisberg’s Hold Dear, As Always: Jette, a German Immigrant Life in Letters and a HofbrauDunkel, we’ve got you covered. So grab a good beer, a great book, and kick off Oktoberfest the right way with the University of Missouri Press’s Beers & Books!
