About the Author

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

“Listen, I like James Bond. And I like Star Wars. But I love drinking. And when this book made it clear that I could fully combine a series of films with a series of drinks, I ascended straight to heaven. Not only is Cioletti’s book informative and inventive, but wildly entertaining as well. Of course, I’m drunk on an Ewok ‘Bright Tree Swizzle,’ but there you go.”
—Matt Gourley, actor, comedian, & co-host of the James Bonding and Superego podcast

“Jeff is a geek, but he's no snob. Like a friend who lends favorite comic books or tips you off to a great IPA, this book opens up a new worlds and shares your passion for their minute details. Drink Like A Geek revels in nerd culture while remembering that the best parts of being in the club are the people—and drinks—there with you.”
—Kate Bernot, managing editor, The Takeout (TheTakeout.com)

“A geek's geek and a drinker's drinker, Jeff Cioletti authoritatively puts a whole spectrum of geek-loved media together with peppy, name-checked cocktails. Wonderfully unique! Get Boilermakers with good old Greedo, and see who shoots first. Drink Romulan Ale with Doc McCoy, Tardis-blue gin with The Doctor, and a corrected Vesper with Bond; James Bond. Then argue about them; that's what Geeks do.”
—Lew Bryson, Author of Tasting Whiskey and Whiskey Master Class; senior drinks writer at The Daily Beast

“You know that line about booze and knowledge? I'm convinced Tyrion Lannister stole it from Jeff Cioletti. The author of this book has an unabashed love and appreciation for inventive drinks and all forms of geekery. The two have more in common than you might think, and, as both step in from the fringes, Cioletti is here to get you deeper into your favorite genre and glass.”
—John Holl, author of Drink Beer, Think Beer: Getting to the Bottom of Every Pint and co-host of Steal This Beer, a podcast

Drink Like a Geek is a blast! To all the besotted, sci-fi loving, gaming, twenty-sided-dice throwing, spell-casting nerds out there…be sure to also pick up a copy of MY forthcoming book, Avoiding Wedgies in Bars.”

—Dan Dunn, host of What We’re Drinking with Dan Dunn
