Brittany @ The Book Addict's Guide - I love it! This sounds yummy and I don’t know why but I have been SO into saisons these past few weeks. I agree — fruit beer is a great place to start non-beer drinkers because of the flavors that allude to juices or cocktails or wines and also it dampens the “beer flavor” for those who aren’t used to it. They’re not usually overly hoppy either, which I think is usually a turn-off to non-beer drinkers!
I haven’t read this one yet but it sounds good!! I love how it matches the beer too 🙂 I’m always up for underrated books and trust your recs, of course!
