Local micro-distillery featured in second edition of Micro-Distilleries in the U.S. and Canada
Hamburg, PA — David J. Reimer, Sr., released the second edition of Micro-Distilleries in the U.S. and Canada, the only guide dedicated to North American micro-distilleries. Reimer’s book is available in print and will soon be available in a full color e-book. It features Las Vegas Distillery in Henderson.
Micro-Distilleries in the U.S. and Canada is an insider’s guide that’s perfect for fine spirits connoisseurs or novices pouring into the spirit world, and for anyone who wants to find great spirits while traveling. It’s also a great resource for anyone who wants to start their own micro-distillery.
MicroLiquor.com calls this first guide to North American micro-distilleries a “must read,” DrinkUpNY.com calls it, “an excellent guide to the interesting world of craft spirits,” and Drink Me Magazine calls it, “the most comprehensive book cataloging the hundreds of craft distilleries.”
This updated edition includes information on more than 160 micro-distilleries in North America; hundreds of color photos of bottles, labels, equipment, facilities, and the people behind the scenes; and detailed information such as:
• Locations and hours, and tours and tasting times
• Websites and social media
• Spirit descriptions, prices, and distribution
• Awards and recognitions
• Special events and celebrations
• Interesting facts and historical anecdotes
• Staff profiles
• Drink recipes
New to this edition is a listing of spirit festivals, events, and museums; a listing of distilling associations and guilds; an index by spirit type and spirit name; a map of direct from distillery sales across the country; and additional spirit information and resources.
The print book is available through Reimer’s website, Amazon, Barnes and Noble’s website.
The e-book will be available via the following channels: Amazon, Barnes and Noble, iBookstore, Sony, Kobo, Baker and Taylor, Copia, Gardner’s, eBookPie.
Reimer has participated in many book signing and distillery events since the release of the first edition, and he continues to plan events throughout this summer. For example, in July, he will be a featured author at the 10th anniversary of New Orleans’ Tales of the Cocktail, and last year he was a celebrity author at Spirit Journal’s Ultimate Beverage Challenge in New York City and participated in the NYC Indy Spirits Expo, which was part of the Manhattan Cocktail Classic.
“The best part about writing this book was talking to the owners of the micro-distilleries and learning about their passion for their products. They put quality above quantity to make the best spirits possible. Their passion for their products combined with my passion for writing went hand in hand,” said Reimer.
In addition to writing this book, Reimer is an accomplished journalist and photographer. His articles and photos have appeared in his local newspapers, in fire service journals and textbooks, and in various other professional and consumer publications.
Reimer grew up in Gettysburg, Pa. He is a 1985 graduate of Gettysburg High School, and he graduated from Kutztown University of Pennsylvania in 1989 with a B.S. Telecommunications. He is a strong supporter of libraries, and he has spent most of his career as a technology coordinator for public and academic libraries.
