Fuggles: A beer zine

I write a quarterly zine about craft beer. It’s half size, staple-bound, and usually 24 pages. It features beer reviews, cellar reviews, travel stories, beer photography, brewery visits, reviews of beer books, and the occasional silly list. It has lots of text, but also features a bunch of full color photography. It’s very cleanly formatted and assembled.

Currently, you can pick up copies for $3.50 at Quimby’s in both Chicago and New York City, and online at Sweet Candy Distro or at my Etsy shop.
