Camper English relates his “Greetings, readers of Alcademics!” noting that it has been a busy few months since Doctors and Distillers was released.
The author isnow offering signed copies shipped directly to any U.S. address.
The author adds:
I’ve been giving some talks in support of the book in recent weeks, including one to the University of Washington Health Sciences Library and a class visit to UC Berkeley. I’ve also popped in to some zooms for book clubs that have read the book.
I give a pretty fun talk and if you want to discuss hiring me for an online or in-person talk, possibly with a cocktail pairing, let me know! You should be able to reply to this email to get in touch with me.
Surprisingly, sales of D&D have not yet allowed me to pursue the lifestyle of the rich and famous I so deserve, and thus I’ve had to keep writing articles to pay the rent. Here are a few that you may find interesting:
Stories on Books:
- About 40 drink books that are coming out this fall and winter.
- I reviewed The Bartender’s Manifesto and wrote up an announcement about the Anchor Brewery history book that came out yesterday. Spoiler, they’re both great.
- Six Books on Booze Brands and How They Were Built.
Stories on Bars and Bartenders:
- I also participated in the Negroni. Sbagliato. With Prosecco.” discourse, naming 5 SF bars where you can get a variation of the drink.
- Speaking of SF bars, here is an ode to Pacific Cocktail Haven.
- I also asked SF bartenders where they take visiting bartenders, and their answers may surprise you.
By now you may have seen local bartender Christian “Suzu” Suzuki-Orellana on the new Netflix Bar Masters show. I wrote a preview when the cast was announced. Did he win though? I’m not telling, but in this article I did argue that Bar Masters is finally a bartending show that’s interesting to watch.
