Mark Your Calendar For Allagash The Cookbook Signing At Whole Foods Februrary

Allagash Cookbook1Talk about jaw dropping moments.  I had no idea Allagash had even made a cookbook.  I mean you know how much I love, love, love to cook with beer.  Imagine my surprise to see the picture above with this text from  Whole Foods:

February 6th at Whole Foods. Author James Simpkins will be on hand to sign the book. RARE Allagash drafts on tap and dishes from the book prepared by WF. Details as always to come!

I think my heart stopped for just a split second.   I know you want to rush off and buy the book now just as I do, but as with most book signings I’m guessing buying the book from the venue, Whole Foods in this case, will be required.  I hope you have saved the date on your calendar just as I have.
