Algonquin Books + Lagunitas = Free Beer Tour

Hey boys, listen up. Two of your favorite things, books and craft beer, are coming together this summer in the form of an ingenious book tour. The best news of all? As a Chicagoan, there are not one but two events within reasonable driving distance. The tour kicks off at Anderson’s Bookshop in Naperville and the next night the authors are throwing one back in Milwaukee’s Boswell Books.

What: The Algonquin Free Beer Tour stops in Naperville, Milwaukee, Oakland, Boston and Austin, bringing these lucky cities entertaining authors with guy-friendly reads and beer to match. Each of the three new books featured on the tour is paired with a craft brew from Lagunitas Brewing Company.

Who: Algonquin Books showcases authors Josh Wilker (Cardboard Gods: An All-American Tale), Pete Nelson (I Thought You Were Dead) and David Anthony (Something for Nothing)

When/Where:
6/1, Anderson’s Bookshop, Naperville, IL
6/2, Boswell Books, Milwaukee, WI
6/9, Diesel Books, Oakland, CA
6/16, Brookline Booksmith, Brookline, MA
6/30, Book People, Austin, TX

Why: Algonquin said it best: “It’s an evening of pairing great books with great beer—and it sure as hell beats cutting the grass after work.”
