Barley Water & Hops is a unique introduction to craft beer of Portland for the interested and intimidated.

The book focuses on ten prominent Portland breweries taking the reader through the history and unique niche culture behind each. I wrote, designed, and photographed the content for the book. The book comes with special edition coasters that the reader can use when they bring a bottle of beer home from Portland, as well as can be distributed to Craft beer halls to promote sale of the book and travel to Portland.

The reader is also prompted to visit a Barley Water & Hops microsite to help facilitate their trip to Portland. On this microsite they will find up to date information on what is on tap, current local events, interactive maps, and a call a taxi service.
