Sometimes you do something just for the hell of it and it turns into something you never quite imagined. When my wife went back to school in the evenings a few years ago, I decided to put my knowledge of beer and hiking from years of living in Bavaria to use. I designed and wrote a very large website over the course of the next two years. I got lots of mail thanking me for my efforts along with some people interested in doing trips with me. Then one day, Swiss publishing house Helvetiq contacted me about writing a book on beer hiking in Bavaria. It was surely one of he hardest things I’ve ever done but here it is nine months later and the book has just been released in Germany. Details on US distribution coming soon. If you’ve enjoyed Beerwanderers.com, you’ll love Beer Hiking Bavaria, which contains 50 hikes from all over Bavaria along with 50 chosen beers to end your hikes with.
