Amelia Slayton lives what she preaches. She has been a fervent (“obsessed”, as she says) home brewer since 1994, and has founded the country’s first and only certified organic brewing supply store, in Santa Cruz, California, Seven Bridges Cooperative in 1997, which she managed until 2011. She grew up in rural Vermont in a family who grew most of the food they would need. Amelia is creative, passionate, militant for the environment and a sustainable lifestyle, she worked for Greenpeace for seven years. Today she continues to express her talent for crafting quality home made beers, as well as cooking from her farm fresh ingredients and roasting artisan coffee. The book’s graphic design is the author’s work.
