Overview


It’s closing time at the brewery. While the moon rises, the brewery crew—including three little otters (in charge of the water), a wort hog, and a hops wildebeest—introduce us to the brewing equipment, ingredients, and styles of beer. Join this fanciful crew as they close down for the evening and say goodnight to the brew kettle, barley and yeast, hops and mash, saison, porter, IPA, and much more.

This humorous parody of a children's literature classic is a "pitcher book" for grown-ups. It's a besotted bedtime story for beer lovers everywhere!

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“This is the perfect nightcap.”
— Pete Limbach, Carnival Technician, New Belgium Brewing Company

"This book is cute as hell. And it's about beer. Win win."
Paste magazine

"In the music world, a cover song is only worth recording if it can top the original. Goodnight Brew brings that same attitude to the classic children’s book. After reading you’ll wonder why anybody ever bothered with that moon business. The perfect gift for the baby-toting beer geek."
— Patrick Dawson, author of Vintage Beer

"More than just a cute parody, Goodnight Brew shines with spectacular illustrations and captivating storytelling. The added tutorial is a very nice touch, giving the reader a wonderful introduction to the brewing process. It should be on the bookshelf of all craft beer loving parents."
— Michael Bergman, Midwest MicroBrews

"A perfect piece of joy and beer-musement!"
— Michael Bussmann, Social Networking Nerd, New Belgium Brewing Company

"Goodnight Brew is a curious hybrid—like a smoked IPA or stout brewed with strawberries—that entertains and informs. With the wit and authority you'd expect from a bedtime story about beer, this crazy book leaves you dreaming of hops and barley while inspiring you to get to the nearest brewery and thank the creators for their hard work."
— Will Siss, beer columnist and blogger at beersnobwrites.com

"You made me smile… This is an interesting and entertaining introduction to the process of craft brewing and beer styles that any novice could enjoy and take away a basic understanding of the craft behind the beer."
— Banjo Bandolas, Realbeer.com & Probrewer.com

"This book easily brings out a smile and the desire to meet a hops wildebeest in his natural brewery habitat."
— John Holl, editor of All About Beer Magazine and author of The American Craft Beer Cookbook.

“If you live in Fort Collins, Colorado, you know and love Allie Ogg’s artwork. This book shares this with the rest of the craft beer community. Enjoy our treasure!”
— Lauren Woods Salazar, Wood Cellar Manager & Blender, New Belgium Brewing Company

In the great brew room, there was a kettle that shone, and a gramophone, and a pitcher of...a chocolate stout with two feathers of foam. And there were three little otters in charge of the water.
