Review on Mike’s Craft Beer Blog, January 17, 2017
UPDATED! Review and excerpt in What’s Brewing Magazine (BC), Winter 2016-2017

Notable Reviews

“Frank Appleton’s new book Brewing Revolution has immediately become a must-read for fans of BC craft beer. Aside from the simple fact that this story from the pioneer days of BC craft beer needed to be told in greater depth than before, Appleton provides the tale with intelligence, knowledge and personality…. From the first page to the last, Appleton surpasses the reader’s expectations with a personal recounting of the craft beer movement both inside and outside of BC… Appleton comes across as that intelligent and thoughtful friend who can explain complex subjects in easy terms with almost no ego. He seems like the beer nerd we all wished we knew.”
~ Ted Child, What’s Brewing Magazine, Winter 2016-17

Mention and recommendation in the Penticton Western News, January 13, 2017

Notable Reviews

“For another’s perspective on B.C.’s Protected Areas I highly recommend reading David Pitt-Brooke’s new book Crossing Home Ground in which he describes his walk from the headwaters of the Ashnola River near the U.S. Border to Williams Lake. Subtitled A Grassland Odyssey through Southern Interior British Columbia, this is definitely a “must read.””
