You know that thing that's been keeping me from being a good blogger? That ethereal book that only existed because I said it did? Well, now - hopefully - you can see that I'm not a big fat liar. The book that I wrote with fellow beer chick Hallie Beaune, The Naked Pint: An Unadulterated Guide to Craft Beer, is now available for pre-sale at Barnes and Noble and Amazon, as well as other online retail outlets. Hooray! Here's the description"

In The Naked Pint, Perozzi and Beaune offer a down-to-earth guide to craft and artisanal brews that celebrates beer for what is truly is: sophisticated, complex and flavorful. Covering everything from beer basics to the science behind beer, food and beer pairings, home brewing, and tips for perfecting one's palate. This edgy no-nonsense guide exposes hidden truths, debunks misconceptions, and reveals the power that comes from knowing your ales from a hole in the ground!

We also got two rock stars of the beer world to read it and here's what they said:

"The Naked Pint is a great read for anyone interested in all things beer - from beer style descriptions to cooking with beer to brewing your own beer at home. The authors know their stuff; they understand that beer can be complex without being overly complicated and take beer seriously but don't take themselves too seriously."

-Sam Calagione, President Dogfish Head Craft Brewery

"No one turns people on to beer the way that Christina and Hallie do. Along with their passion and expertise, they bring a wit and levity that exemplify the renegade spirit of craft beer. They possess the skills of a sommelier..yet take you on the even more inspired journey into craft beer."

-Greg Koch, CEO and co-founder, Stone Brewing Co

Also, please check out the newly launched website for the book to get more book release and book tour information! Yeah, I'm an author!
