Joe Stange is a freelance writer and editor specializing in food, drink and travel. Beer, mostly. He only rarely refers to himself in the third person. You can contact him -- er, me -- directly at joe dot thirstypilgrim AT gmail dot com, if you want, but to be honest I don't check it very often. To much bullshit in that inbox. You'll have better luck tweeting @Thirsty_Pilgrim.
I'm a contributing editor at DRAFT Magazine, so you will find a lot of my stuff in there. Subscribe! It's a lovely magazine for people who like to drink beer. Do you?
I wrote this: Around Brussels in 80 Beers. That would be the second edition, newly published. If you go to Brussels and like to drink beer, you could go without my book. But I don't recommend it. Especially if you like out-of-the-way pubs with lots of character and different beers, occasional splashes of insight, and jokes.
I co-wrote this: Good Beer Guide Belgium, 7th edition, with Tim Webb. He started it back in 1992. We say it's the best book on its subject, and I believe that. It's got the breweries, the beers, great cafés to visit across Belgium, and more. Also, jokes.
Please consider buying those books and lots of others through excellent indie shops like Left Bank Books in St. Louis. Or from Books About Beer. For example. If you do shop from Amazon -- it's OK, I do it too, everyone does -- it would be really swell if you could leave a review. An honest one, of course. I'd expect no less.
