Editorial Reviews

Review

“While his sense of humor, Jeremy's schtick, is riotous and unforgettable, it is the trails encountered following his dream that make this book a memorable read. Enjoy the ride as much as one of Jeremy's beers.”  —Daniel Bradford, publisher, All About Beer magazine



“Jeremy Cowan combines the heart of a brewer with the soul of a two-thousand-year-old rabbinical mench in his new book Craft Beer Bar Mitzvah. A must read on how to get from there (a crazy dream) to here successfully in beer.”  —Tom Dalldorf, publisher, Celebrator Beer News



“Mixes comedic, self-deprecating anecdotes with general acts of badassery—which pretty much sums up the brands [Cowan] has created.”  —Jeff Cioletti, editor in chief, Beverage World magazine



“This man knows how to build a brand from scratch and reading his story is a fascinating, can't-put-the-book-down tale. Just don't read it from right to left.”  —Pete Slosberg, founder, Pete's Wicked Ale



“Hilariously mind-blowing”  —Alan Kaufman, author, Jew Boy

Format: Paperback
You can't help falling in love with the story behind Craft Beer Bar Mitzvah: a so-crazy-it-just-might-work concept that transformed into a life calling. The novel is personal and poignant, frustrating and uplifting. Author Jeremy Cowan doesn't hold back in detailing candidly his naivety, partying, the kindness of others, his relationships or lessons learned along the way. It's a must read for anyone considering or who has ever considered starting their own business. You'll never sit down for a (craft)beer again and take for granted the heart and soul behind the finished product.

Format: Paperback
This kind of narrative could only be delivered by the likes of Jeremy Cowan, Craft Beer Lover, Creator, and man behind the myth of Shmaltz Brewing. Hysterical, occasionally far-fetched but utterly believable, Cowan's first novel is a baseball hit out of the park and through the windshield of your car. Initially shocking, once you realize that the insurance check is in the mail and the read will pay off, the warm blanket of narrative provides stories that will serve through years and years of cocktail parties to come. L'Chaim!

Format: Paperback
As you might expect from the man behind He'brew Beer and Coney Island Lagers, this book is a wild, off-beat, creative, and contemplative memoir, as well as a candid tale of the blood, sweat, failures, and lucky breaks that come with starting your own small business. I loved all the "supplementary materials" in the book, including suggested beer pairings for each chapter, a hangover rating system, and a list of the author's many sublets and crash pads across the country for the past 14 years. Overall, a highly-entertaining read that I can see appealing to beer lovers, entrepreneurs, and dreamers alike.
