“Renee Catacalos has long been a champion of the edible resources and character of the Chesapeake watershed. Her book beautifully ties cultural, historical, and natural resources into a poetic volume that ennobles the people of the greater Chesapeake, giving an appreciation for the sustainable and local in one of America’s most ancient and proud foodscapes.”—Michael Twitty, author of The Cooking Gene
“The explosion in craft-beer brewing and consumption is not limited to hipster locales like Seattle, Portland, and Brooklyn, as Lee Graves illustrates… Virginia Beer shows how the Old Dominion’s central role in the current beer craze is no accident, given that America’s beer tradition began in Virginia with the settlers at Jamestown, who brought the first beer to the American continent in 1607. The book is extensively illustrated and suggests numerous brewery tours that will point you in the right direction for a statewide beer crawl.”—Publishers Weekly
“Let 100 Things to Do in Charlottesville Before You Die be your guide to all the delightful activities off the tourists’ track, and a roadmap to the true flavor and feeling of today’s Charlottesville.”—Reedy Press
