Reading: Noch Ein at the Stein: A Poetic Essay on Beer, Conversation, and Hippycrits
August 11, 2022 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pmFree
Eugene writer Tim Shaner will read from his new book Noch Ein at the Stein: A Poetic Essay on Beer, Conversation, and Hippycrits, accompanied by Hawaii transplant Jeff Ibach on guitar.
“In Noch Ein at the Stein, Tim Shaner captures the essential elements of why the Stein is my favorite bar in America. The beer community, the stories, the very human social contact & interaction, and, above all, the celebration of beer. . . . Noch Ein is a must read for all those who love bar life and life itself. It is even more poignant during these Covid times when that sense of ‘Communitas’ has been taken away.
— Hal Hermanson, KLCC Brewfest Operations/Brewer’s Lounge, Underwriting
