Fall 2020 update:
Due to the ongoing pandemic and publisher delays, Beer Hiking Pacific Northwest will not be available in 2020. We are so sorry for the inconvenience. Rest assured, we're working to bring the book back (in an updated 2nd edition!) as soon as possible. In the meantime, please check out our new book, Urban Hikes Washington!
That's all, folks! Released in May 2018, our book, Beer Hiking Pacific Northwest has sold through 4 print runs over the last year and a half. As first-time authors, we're so grateful for the huge show of support from our readers. Thank you for buying up our book so fast that we can't keep it in stock!
So, why is the book out of print? Normally with a hot-selling title, it's in everyone's best interest (publisher, distributor, authors, readers) to keep the book on the shelf. In this case, our publisher and distributor are no longer working together. Without a distributor, the book can't get into stores. If our publisher orders a 5th printing, there's no warehouse for the books to live in and ship from.
Most US-based guidebook publishers would never encounter an issue like this because they have well-established distribution channels. Unfortunately, our international publisher is still trying to find the best partner to distribute their books and games in America. It's frustrating, but there's not much we can do besides wait this process out.
A New Opportunity
Researched and written during the fall/winter of 2016, Beer Hiking Pacific Northwest's content is already three years old. A 2nd edition gives us the opportunity to provide much-needed updates to the book and add a few destinations that we missed last time around. Stay tuned for updates!
