Good Beer Guide to the West Coast

Dave wants you to to buy a new book: the Good Beer Guide to the West Coast.
All the topics I envisioned are covered extremely well, even including a note about the Urban Growth Boundary, specs on the Aerial Tram, and a good overview of the McMenamin brothers burgeoning empire. The just-published book is by-and-large very up-to-date, with reviews of the just-opened Hopworks (they tried the IPA at OBF), Laurelwood’s Sandy location, the excellent Bailey’s Taproom, and many more.
Go read his review, or if you're feeling plucky, just buy the book.
