Beyond the Pale: The Story of Sierra Nevada Brewing Co.

To maintain some semblance of adulthood, one must occasionally read a book, especially in the summer. Paging your way through Beyond the Pale: The Story of Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. ($17) certainly seems like one of the best ways to feign maturity as you learn about founder┬áKen Grossman’s awesome transformation from hobbyist homebrewer to owner of one of the most successful craft breweries in the U.S.. When someone asks you what you’re reading this summer, just tell them it’s a book about sustainability, nonconformity, following one’s passion, and doing things the right way. Ken would be proud.
