Read Local, Drink Local with Slumbrew and Norman Miller

Join Porter Square Books for a beer tasting and author reading and signing with Slumbrew and Norman Miller.

Slumbrew is all about the synergy between craft products and every day consumption. Well conceived, locally-sourced, quality products should be an every day part of our lives – not a unique occurrence. This is the spirit of Slumbrew.

Slumbrew is the research & development brand and concept of Somerville Brewing Company. Our mission is to brew unique, ingredient-driven beers that challenge common notions of what a beer should taste like. It is the result of nearly 15 years of beer travel and research by Caitlin Jewell and Jeff Leiter; and a decade of Jeff’s homebrewing recipe formulation.

Norman Miller is the author of Beer Lover’s Guide to New England: Best Breweries, Brewpubs, & Beer Bars. He grew up in the beer wasteland of Leominster, Massachusetts, where he still resides with his dog, Fox, and his beer fridge, Beatrice. He writes the popular Beer Nut column that appears weekly in the MetroWest Daily News and the Beer Nut blog on

Tasting is free with the purchase of the featured book, Beer Lover's Guide to New England. I suppose you could just stand there and listen to the presentation while everyone else samples delicious, delicious beer, if you don't want to buy the book, but that doesn't sound like much fun to me.

If you are interested in attending, it would be really handy to pre-order your copy of the featured book. That way, we can be sure to have enough beer and books. Thanks.

You must be 21 to participate in this event.
