In this companion volume to the Long Island Beer Guide, Donavan Hall gives the full story of his first year as a professional beer writer.
Donavan decides to quit his day job and embark on a new career as a craft beer adventurer. After relocating to Long Island from sunny Florida, Donavan gets back into homebrewing and meets Mike who takes him on his first beer adventure in Boston. Then Donavan travels to Baltimore to crawl the bars of Fells Point. He returns to hook up with Mike and Rich for a tour of Brooklyn. Then he hops on an airplane for the Pacific Northwest to experience really hoppy beer in its native habitat, followed by a jaunt to Denver. Then he's back on a plane bound (this time) for England; he's looking for Real Ale. Exhausted, Donavan tries to take his family on a vacation to Pennsylvania only to find a surfeit of brewpubs including the unique Bube's Brewery in Mount Joy. In the end Donavan returns home to New York with a clear vision of vocation as a beer evangelist.
