"Jeff Cioletti's "The Year of Drinking Adventurously" manages the near impossible; it is both comprehensive yet approachable, detailed yet entertaining. Cioletti has a real gift for finding narrative and making the material which in the hands of lesser writers would turn into a plodding survey of obscure arcana read like a page-turner. Jeff Alworth, author of "The Beer Bible" and "Cider Made Simple""
"Jeff Cioletti is like a deep sea diver plumbing to new depths of boozy culture. With an air tank full of wit, humor, and guile, he takes us to new worlds of drink culture rarely seen by the less courageous and casual imbiber. A reader s only regret is to not be there in person to pound down an enticing pint or mysterious cocktail along with Jeff in these exotic locales, though surely they will be left to dream their own next delicious drink adventure." Darek Bell, founder and owner, Corsair Distillery and author of Alt Whiskeys and Fire Water."

You want a little adventure in your life. And why not? With thousands of breweries and distilleries in the United States, there are more choices than ever on tap and behind the bar. So many, that you re a little bit intimidated.
But throughout the course of a year you can learn to impress your friends by becoming a pub savant with The Year of Drinking Adventurously, a guide to getting out of your beverage comfort zone once a week for a year. Each of the fifty-two chapters features the story behind a unique beer, spirit, cocktail or wine, designed to broaden your drinking horizons. Some correspond with specific seasons or holidays, encouraging you to forget the million-dollar marketing-supported conventional wisdom and drink against the grain. It s Cinco de Mayo? There s much more to the celebration than lime-enhanced lager and shots of rotgut tequila. St. Patrick s Day? Do you really want to be the 700th person of the evening to order a green-tinted brew and a shot of cheap whiskey?
The Year of Drinking Adventurously takes the social imbiber on a journey into the exciting and unknown one week at a time."
