Steven Shomler first told the stories of the people inside Portland’s food carts and now he has moved on to another group of creators.  The brewers of Portland with his Portland Beer Stories which drops into bookstores in September.

I’m not a big fan of printed interviews.  Finding a balance where the interviewer can espouse their feelings and put the subject into wider context without getting too chummy or to by the book is hard.  I feel it works better in radio or podcast form where the inflection and tone can bring a person to life.  But I do hope that this book contains some informative and lively talks.  More discussion than one-sided.

To be reviewed later this year….
