Christina Perozzi and Hallie Beaune are smart, funny, beautiful, and really know what they are talking about when it comes to beer. Their recent book, The Naked Pint, made our list of top five beer reads last week. At that time, we tortured you with the fact that we would be among the lucky few to meet the L.A. duo this month at an exclusive media-only event.
Well, thanks to the hard work of some folks at Flying Dog and ChurchKey, and steady encouragement and applauding from us, there is now a fabulous opportunity for you to meet the talented writers. Next Tuesday, November 17, from 7:00 to 9:30pm, Christina and Hallie will be at ChurchKey at 14th and Rhode Island, NW, doing what they do best, sharing their love of craft beer.
The two famous beer chicks will be on hand to talk about beer, give away signed copies of their book, and sample and discuss ChurchKey’s offerings with you. On top of the Logan Circle hotspot’s regular list, there will be a special selection from local award-winning brewery, Flying Dog. Drafts include Gonzo Imperial Porter, Double Dog Double Pale Ale, and Belgian IPA Raging Bitch, which the Lagerheads got to try at the beer’s world premiere at the Brickskeller in May. The cask will be Flying Dog’s Doggie Style Classic Pale Ale, and as if all this great beer wasn’t enough, the brewery will be giving away plenty of schwag.
About the authors:
Renowned beer sommeliers Christina Perozzi and Hallie Beaune met at the famed Father’s Office in Santa Monica, CA, and became fast friends over the bond they shared with their one true love, craft beer. After a long night of work answering the same questions over and over again, they decided (over beers, of course) to write a book about the best beverage in the world, so that everyone could know craft beer as well as they do.
In The Naked Pint: An Unadulterated Guide to Craft Beer, Perozzi and Beaune offer a down-to-earth guide to craft and artisanal brews that celebrates beer for what it truly is: sophisticated, complex and flavorful. Covering everything from beer basics to the science of behind beer, food and beer pairings, home brewing, and tips for perfecting one’s palate. This edgy no-nonsense guide exposes hidden truths, debunks misconceptions, and reveals the power that comes from knowing your ales from a hole in the ground! Christina and Hallie live by the credo: Beer is good!
We’ll be there. You should, too. If for some insane reason this event doesn’t sound like you’re thing, however, there are plenty of other beer events going on that night. Check out our Google calendar for details.
