David J. Reimer, Sr., Released 3rd edition of Micro-Distilleries in the U.S. and Canada
David J. Reimer, Sr., released the third edition of Micro-Distilleries in the U.S. and Canada, the only guide dedicated to North American micro-distilleries. Published by Crave Press, the book is available in print and will be available as a full color e-book. The book features two micro-distilleries in Alaska:
• Alaska Distillery, Wasilla
• Bare Distillery, Anchorage
Micro-Distilleries in the U.S. and Canada is the definitive guide to micro-distilleries, perfect for fine spirits connoisseurs or novices pouring into the spirit world and for anyone who wants to find great spirits while traveling. It’s also a great resource for anyone who wants to start their own micro-distillery.
MicroLiquor.com calls this first guide to North American micro-distilleries a “must read,” DrinkUpNY.com calls it, “an excellent guide to the interesting world of craft spirits,” and Drink Me Magazine calls it, “the most comprehensive book cataloging the hundreds of craft distilleries.” Also, SpiritReview.com’s Chris Carlsson describes the book as, "Well written, a great read, and a massive amount of interesting details on every distillery. No where will you find a more comprehensive yet accessible reference on this subject in one well laid out book.”
This updated edition includes information on more than 450 micro-distilleries from all 50 states and across Canada, hundreds of photos of bottles and labels, and information such as:
• Locations and hours, and tours and tasting times
• Websites and social media
• Spirit descriptions, prices, and distribution
• Interesting facts and historical anecdotes
The book also includes a listing of spirit festivals, events, and museums; a listing of distilling associations and guilds; an index by spirit type; and additional spirit information and resources.
The book is available on Reimer’s website, Amazon, and Barnes and Noble’s website.
Reimer has participated in many book signings and distillery events since the release of the first edition of the book, and he plans to continue these events with the release of the third edition. For example, he has been a featured author at the 10th anniversary of Tales of the Cocktail, a celebrity author at Spirit Journal’s Ultimate Blast, and a NYC Indy Spirits Expo participant.
“It’s an exciting time to be in the micro-distilling industry because it’s exploding. That has made working on the book so much more exciting. My favorite part of writing this book was talking to the owners of the micro-distilleries and learning about their passion for their products. They put quality above quantity to make the best spirits possible. Their passion for their products combined with my passion for writing went hand in hand,” said Reimer.
In addition to writing this book and working on other book projects, Reimer is an accomplished journalist and photographer. His articles and photos have appeared in his local newspapers, in professional and consumer publications, and in textbooks.
