New Book from Local Author Explores Seasonal Eating and Beer Pairing



Fred Bueltmann (also known as The Beervangelist) is an owner of New Holland Brewing Co. and an outspoken, fiercely passionate champion of well-made beer and food. Well-known in the beer and food communities, Fred’s exuberant and sometimes manic quest to artfully integrate beer with food led to his first book — Beervangelist’s Guide to the Galaxy.

The book is chock-full of mouth-watering recipes and tantalizing photos, and features rants on the culture of food, drink, and entertaining. Bueltmann’s journey is one of waking up our taste buds, educating our palates, and remembering that our food and drink are meant to be enjoyed—even relished.

I have not had a chance to review the book yet, but from perusing the table of contents online, I love how it is divided into each season, with sections like “eating spring, drinking spring” and the like. There are around eight recipes for each season (spring, summer, autumn, winter).

The Beervangelist will be attending several events and book signings in Michigan and on the East Coast in June. Catch up with him on the road at any number of events. He’ll be kicking off his tour in conjunction with the prestigious Savor event in New York City, where he’ll be hosting two salons on beer and food. For his most current schedule – you can visit his book’s web pageHERE or his Facebook page HERE.

If you’re unable to meet up with him, you can find his book on the New Holland ONLINE STORE or at AMAZON.
