Brewing Up a Business

Browseabout welcomes Sam Calagione, founder of Dogfish Head Brewery, as he signs copies of his three books. Sam's innovative style has earned him a reputation as one of America's most adventurous entrepreneurs and brewers.

In Brewing Up a Business, Calagione offers a deeper real-world look at entrepreneurship and what it takes to run a booming business.

The recipe-driven Extreme Brewing is an ideal resource for aspiring home brewers who are interested in recreating specialty beers at home, but don't have the time to learn the in-depth science and lore behind home-brewing. It features recipes for classic beer styles - such as ales and lagers - but also places an emphasis on hybrid styles that use fruit, vegetables, herbs, and spices.

He Said Beer, She Said Wine is a fully illustrated book that gives in-depth instruction on how to successfully pair both beer and wine with a wide variety of foods. Co-authored by Marnie Old, this title teaches you everything you need to know to get the best out of your beverages, with food or without. Each author divulges the secrets of their respective trades, using clear, easy-to-understand language - and, of course, a little good-natured banter to keep things lively.

You'll also receive a free Dogfish pint glass when you purchase any one of these books! The signing will take place on Friday, August 1st at 5:00 PM. Can't make it to the event? We're happy to have a copy personalized for you.

While supplies last, Browseabout is handing out copies of The Miseducation of Cameron Post to interested teens. After this title was removed from the summer reading list for incoming freshman at Cape Henlopen High School, we partnered with AfterEllen.com to make this happen.

Set in rural Montana in the early 1990s, emily m. danforth’s The Miseducation of Cameron Post is a powerful and widely acclaimed YA coming-of-age novel in the tradition of the classic Annie on My Mind.

Cameron Post feels a mix of guilt and relief when her parents die in a car accident. Their deaths mean they will never learn the truth she eventually comes to—that she's gay. Orphaned, Cameron comes to live with her old-fashioned grandmother and ultraconservative aunt Ruth. There she falls in love with her best friend, a beautiful cowgirl. When she’s eventually outed, her aunt sends her to God’s Promise, a religious conversion camp that is supposed to “cure” her homosexuality. At the camp, Cameron comes face to face with the cost of denying her true identity.

The Miseducation of Cameron Post is a stunning and provocative literary debut that was a finalist for the YALSA Morris Award and was named to numerous “best” lists.

Interested teens may come and pick up a copy for free, courtesy of generous donors, both from our community and across the nation. If you are interested in donating a copy, call the store at 302-226-2665.
