Forbes quotes Em Sauter in recent article

Craft Breweries Dominate The Top 50, But Guess Which Giants Rule The Beer Market

Em Sauter, a certified beer judge and the author of Beer is for Everyone! (of Drinking Age), uses the term macro brewery — often defined as a brewery annually producing more than 6 million barrels of beer — for the beer giants.

Em Sauter's book Beer Is for Everyone—and the web comic Pints and Panels on which it is based—is a simple concept brilliantly executed. Em is a cartoonist and an Advanced Cicerone®, and she combines her two seemingly disparate passions into a single project: cartoon beer reviews.

The concept could seem like a gimmick if Em didn't pull it off so well. Her simple but effective drawings are disarming and cheerful, immediately removing some of the intimidation factor some might face when reading beer reviews as novices, and the economy of information she provides is helpful without burdening the reader with insider language. As both an Advanced Cicerone and a brewery professional (she works for Two Roads Brewing in her home state of Connecticut), Em knows more about beer than the vast majority of drinkers, but she doesn't feel the need to prove it constantly. She likes beer, she wants everyone to like beer, and her easy-going, humorous style helps readers feel like she'd probably like them too if they ever got the chance to grab a pint together.

The Beer Necessities

Filed under: News — Staff @ 15:55:33

All-around beer badass Em Sauter wears many, many hats: author, cartoonist, beer-obsessive, Advanced Cicerone, and Communications Manager for the inimitable Connecticut-based Two Roads Brewing Co. For the last seven years, Sauter's been chronicling her journey through the craft world one skillfully illustrated beer review at a time in her award-winning illustrated blog, Pints and Panels, a project that ultimately led to her brand new book, Beer Is for Everyone! (Of Drinking Age). In a world filled with aspiring beer writers, a published book is no small potatoes. And it's her fresh, funny, and totally original approach to teaching and celebrating the good drink that makes her stand out from the ever-thirsty pack.

Filed under: News — Staff @ 18:24:56

. . . Sauter uses a two-dimensional version of what I presume is herself to walk readers through a colorful and memorable landscape of everything one should know about beer before attempting to show off at a party.

It seemed like demand in beer books crested about three years ago, but the supply is growing astronomically. Books for newbies dominate the category, and there are already a number out there that serve this need. Despite that, I hope people make some room on their bookshelf for Em Sauter's incredibly engaging and winsome new book.
