In 2014 writer Bryan Jansing and I published Italy: Beer Country The Story of Italian Craft Beer.  We follow the story from it's humble roots through the eyes of the passionate brewers whose persistent, dogged determination allowed them to overcome cultural bias, low expectations and Italy's infuriating taxes, to forge what has become Europe's most vibrant beer scene. Italy: Beer Country is the first written history of this evolving, creative craft beer movement.
