About the Authors
Caroline Wallace, Sarah Wood, and Jessica Deahl’s shared love of beer has taken them to some truly world-renowned breweries. As three of the writers behind the popular all-women-run beer blog BitchBeer.org, they’ve collectively visited hundreds of breweries, covered national beer events, and interviewed some of the biggest names in the industry. This is the second book for Wallace and Wood, two of the co-authors behind Austin Beer: Capital City History on Tap (The History Press, 2013). This is Deahl’s long form writing debut; the Chicago-based illustrator’s artwork has previously been published in Alternative Movie Posters II: More Film Art from the Underground (Schiffer Publishing, 2015). For this book, they’ve journeyed thousands of miles together, from the United States to Belgium, the Netherlands, Austria, Italy, and back again, for the complete tour of the world's authentic Trappist monastery breweries.
