Thank you all so much - we made it!!
I'm grateful for your support, which goes well beyond having advance orders for the book. Your encouragement, conversation and enthusiasm has been a big help in refining the purpose and direction of the whole project.
The campaign ends Friday at Noon, so we have another day and a half for people to pledge support and claim their limited-edition rewards. Dollars pledged beyond our original goal will certainly help improve our book release efforts, so feel free to keep on sharing the link. http://tiny.cc/beervangelist
As the number goes up, I'll make sure to improve the free swag sent to all backers to return the favor. What swag do you want to see? Feel free to post ideas for merch you'd like on the Facebook page: www.facebook.com/thebeervangelist.
I'll send more updates as I can, but right now it's time to hunker down and finish the book!
Thanks again for your generous support, confidence and encouragement. Photography starts on Sunday!
Wow - it's been an exciting week, and it's only Tuesday! First and foremost, I'm happy to tell you that "Beervangelist's Guide to the Galaxy" is 62% funded with nine days left to go! It's really encouraging to get the backer updates from Kickstarter and feel all of your support. Thank you all for stepping up and making it happen!
I've been busy preparing for New Holland's Wholesaler Summit and Blue Sunday next week, as well as the Michigan Brewer's Guild Winter Conference, which starts tomorrow. I'm honored to head up the effort of creating the menu for the Thursday night MBG Conference Dinner at the Kalamazoo Radisson. We're serving thirty two beers, paired with sixteen different dishes at four stations which are organized by flavor family. Of course there's another thirteen beers at Station Five with various cheeses, meats and salads. It's a complex endeavor, but a delicious one. I'm looking forward to the flavorful camaraderie that is always the most fun part of the evening.
I'll also be presenting and exhibiting the book project at the MBG Conference, which should help energize our last nine days of funding. Very shortly afterwards, we have several cooking sessions scheduled, where we'll be shooting photography for the book.
If any of you are coming to the MBG Conference, Blue Sunday, or the Wholesaler Summit - I'll see you there. For more information on the events, check out the links posted on www.facebook.com/thebeervangelist.
