We’re so happy for Sherry’s series debut and the release of From Beer to Eternity, the first Chloe Jackson Seaglass Saloon mystery!
News Flash: Threadandstiches is Ramona DeFelice Long’s winner! Congratulations, and please check your email.
So dish on beer, Wickeds – if you love it, what’s your favorite? Do you have a history with beer? Have you outgrown it or grown to adore it? Go. And yay, Sherry!
Julie: Congratulations Sherry! I’ve been looking forward to reading this book for a while. I’m a big fan of beer, and have enjoyed going to beer gardens here and in Europe. I have a few friends who are really into beer, and I love going out (back when I could) and trying different types, including sours, shandys and IPAs.
Edith/Maddie: Julie, I knew you would be first to chime in on beer! I’m so excited for Sherry and to pick up my copy of the book at my local indy bookstore. Since I met my Hugh in 2004, I have become a connoisseur of India Pale Ales – and hops. The hoppier the brew, the better! But sour beer? I run screaming. Can’t tolerate the stuff. And when I think back to when we thought Michelob or Coors was a great beer, I’m flat out embarrassed.
Jessie: Super congratulations to you, Sherry, on the new series! What fun! I have to confess, I am not a fan of beer. I know there are all sorts of beers out there but so far, I haven’t found one I enjoy. If I were to visit the Seaglass Saloon I would love to order a glass of shiraz or sauvignon blanc, a bottle of hard cider, a dry martini or, my favorite thing of all, champagne!
Barb: I’m not a beer drinker, either. Since we’re in the Florida panhandle, I think I’d opt for something tropical–margarita, mojito, pina colada–at the Seaglass Saloon. But whatever was in it, I would lift a glass to you, Sherry. Congratulations on the start of a new series!
Sherry: Thanks to all of you, dear Wickeds. Your support during my writing journey has made it so much more fun. I turned to you with rants, fears, and joys. I can’t imagine my writing life without you. Funny story about beer — my dad would give me sips when I was little and I liked it. We were on vacation in Minnesota with friends. My dad ordered a beer, our friend ordered a beer, and I ordered a beer — I was three. I don’t drink beer as often as I once did (ahem, college), but I do still enjoy it occasionally.
Readers: Favorite beer? Have you ever been to the Florida Panhandle? Or just offer Sherry a big congrats!
