Diesel, A Bookstore in Oakland welcomes Ken Weaver to the store to discuss and sign The Northern California Craft Beer Guide on Thursday, September 20th at 7pm. Joining him will be representatives from Oakland brewery Dying Vines, who will be pouring Old Brick Bitter and discussing their brewing process. The Northern California Craft Beer Guide is the definitive handbook to the artistry, people, and history of the region's craft beer scene. While many guidebooks rely on second-hand accounts or provide coverage that fails to do the footwork of discerning the insipid from the delicious, this isn't one of those books. Beer writer Ken Weaver and photographer Anneliese Schmidt have invested months of precious drinking time into visiting the furthest corners of Northern California: from the latest Belgian-style beers coming out of Arcata, to the newest beer-centric burger joint in Santa Cruz, to the phenomenal brews of Central Valley nobody's ever heard of. Their goal was to create a guide that does this beer scene justice.This event is free and open to the public; must be 21+ with ID to drink.
