Goodnight Brew: A Parody for Beer People

It’s closing time at the brewery. While the moon rises, the brewery crew—including three little otters (in charge of the water), a wort hog, and a hops wildebeest—introduce us to the brewing equipment, ingredients, and styles of beer. Join this fanciful crew as they close down for the evening and say goodnight to the brew kettle, barley and yeast, hops and mash, saison, porter, IPA, and much more.

Befuddled about beer ingredients? Puzzled about the brew process? Can’t remember the difference between an ale and a lager? Don’t miss the brew infographics that follow the story!

This humorous parody of a children’s literature classic is a “pitcher book” for grown-ups. It’s a besotted bedtime story for beer lovers everywh

Just as the cover of “Goodnight Brew” promises, it’s “a parody for beer people.” As such, it’s a clever and cute take off on “Goodnight Moon” that will cause anyone with a little brewing knowledge to laugh. The drawings are colorful and appealing. I especially liked the “whirling wort hog.” Since the book has only been out a couple of months, I encourage author Karla Oceanak and illustrator Alli Ogg to work out a few glitches in the electronic version. One example is the very nice drawing under “Goodnight beer lovers everywhere.” The illustration explains the beer-making process in a simple, accurate way, but making it large enough to read on an iPad results in fuzzy resolution and the drawing has to be viewed in segments. On the “Beer Types & Styles” page, the columns run over onto the next page, but reformatting for digital devices is easy enough.

What impresses me most is that I see this little book as a reflection of how far the brewing culture in the United States has evolved. Thirty years ago, very few people would have understood “Goodnight Brew”. With so many types of brewers today, there’s a whole niche of potential readers—many with young children who see Dad or Mom with buckets and malted barley, etc. Kudos to Oceanak and Ogg!

Great Book for Beer Geeks With Children!, December 27, 2014

This book is great. It has a label that says it is for adults over 21 years of age, but there is nothing in this book that would harm a child. The label is probably necessary because they can not market alcohol to children. But this book is not promoting beer it is a very well written parody of a children’s book with excellent illustrations. Great for any beer geek with children.

Adorable. The rhyming scheme is not quite the same as it’s parody counterpoint, Goodnight Moon, but it’s still a sweet little beer lovers book.
The drawings are nice, and the size is good. My beer aficionado was quite enamored with this night time tale. 🙂
A great gift for any beer buddy you have!
