I’ve spoken to a variety of audiences, from beer conventions to marketing events for Dow Jones/Wall Street Journal; from the Emily Dickinson Museum to the National Business Incubators Association. I’m yours for the asking.

I’ve written opinion pieces for the Los Angeles Times and the Washington Post.  I’ve also appeared in a number of documentaries, including “Modern Marvels: Plumbing” (History Channel); “Ultimate Factories: Budweiser” (National Geographic Channel); “The American Brew” (Florentine Films); “American Originals: Budweiser” (CNBC); and “Beer Wars” (Ducks In A Row Productions); and “Key West: Bohemia In the Tropics” (Knockemdown Productions). Again: Ask away, people, ask away.

My new book  In Meat We Trust: An Unexpected History of Carnivore America hits bookstore this fall.

Need more? Want more? See The Spiel/FAQ or The Sticky Post.

Thanks for stopping by. I appreciate it.

  1. I was given a set of 4 books, one of them being Ambitious Brew. I put it aside thinking it would be figures & statistics. When I started to read it it bowled me over. The Summer of 1844, Best coming over from the old country, my own direct ancestor, Adam Brockmeyer came over in 1847, landed in Baltimore & stayed. Almost immediately I was deeply ingrossed in your book, you put flesh on these beer barons, they came alive, such interesting people both in their business but also there personal lives. I was born after Prohibition heard of all its evils from my uncles. I read “Last Call” author’s name escapes me at this time but his style does not measure up to you. Would have been nice if you had mentioned the great breweries of Baltimore & the free state. Roland Brockmeyer

    • Thank you SO much for those kind words! One of the nicer things anyone’s said to me lately. As for not mentioning Balto breweries: too many breweries, too many cities, too many states. I couldn’t mention everything and still keep the story moving. If I’d tried to pay note to every brewery, every city, I’dve ended up with an encyclopedia instead of a readable book. So.

      On another note: I just finished my latest book (it comes out this fall) and it’s worth noting that it was MUCH harder to make a “story” about meat than it was about beer because I didn’t have such a tidy cast of characters. Remains to be seen how readers respond.

      Anyway: THANK YOU!!! You made my day.
