We’ve all done it. Our high school English teacher or a college lit professor assigned a novel that we had every good intention of reading, but time slipped away. So, the night before the exam, we scanned the Cliff Notes or watched the film adaptation. We didn’t do so well on the exam.
Here’s a chance to read those books without having to worry about your grade point average! Enjoy some of the fine crafted beers of Starboard Brewing Company and Door County Brewing Company and meet others who, like you, missed reading the book the first time around. Love the book? Hate the book? Don’t understand the book? Come out and tell us about it!
