Mark & Liz are beer enthusiasts and realized that they spend a significant amount of time exploring locations where craft beer “happens.” Mark has, also written a number of books exploring locations where the unexplained “happens” (ghostly and eerie tales). So the concept of collecting stories together for a book about haunted bars and breweries was a natural fit.

Only, since there are so many interesting people, places and things that happen in those same locales (spirited places) they wanted to collect and share some of those stories via this blog, ensuring that others who share a similar passion for the people and places that make up beer culture can enjoy them.

So, while only the most spirited places and the places with alleged spirit activity will make it into the book, this blog will capture the full range of beer-related tales: from the eerie and intriguing to the fun, the amusing, the personal and enjoyable fond memories about beer and beer-related locales.

THE BOOK:  Spirits Untapped: Haunted Bars & Breweries
