Brewery Book Club

We meet every 3rd Wednesday of the month at 7pm in the tap room for this casual, no-commitment book club club.  Feel free to come every month or dart in and out depending on your schedule and interest in each month's book.  Everyone is welcome!

We have a book club partnership with Book World in Southbridge Mall, where book club members are eligible for a 20% discount on book club titles.  Please shop local for your books if you can!

Below is our full list of 2017 books.  As you can see, we have a wide range of genres represented so hopefully there's something for everyone (to find their favorite genre or to branch out!).  We stacked the deck in favor of Pulitzer winners, threw in a beer book (we ARE a brewery), and will honor Jane Austen's bicentenary on its official week with her last-ever book on its 200th birthday year.  Our books this year go around the world (Vietnam, Nigeria, France, Australia) and stay close to home (Iowa/Minnesota), with books covering everything from second-chance love to guerilla warfare.
