"Cheers to the Yooper Ale Trail! Jon's book is a fun and easy way to get a close and detailed offering from each brewery. The beer tastings are the heart of the book, and you will readily see how much Jon enjoyed each and every visit. After reading this book, you will want to make your own journey!" -- Lark Carlyle Ludlow, Owner and Brewster Tahquamenon Falls Brewery & Pub
"Jon C. Stott's Yooper Ale Trails breaks down trips across the peninsula into easily traveled trails so that readers can take their time and enjoy the offerings of each one. Many of these breweries are outstanding restaurants with varied and interesting menus. It seems that in the U.P., all roads lead to beer, and Jon Stott hits these places on all cylinders, providing backgrounds, histories and recommendations for a complete and in-depth guide to U.P. beer. Whether you are a hophead, foodie or sightseer, this is an essential book for your travel library." -Mikel B. Classen, author of Points North: Discover Hidden Campgrounds, Natural Wonders and Waterways of the Upper Peninsula and recipient of the Charles Follo U.P. History Award
"One of the distinct charms of Jon Stott's writing is his refusal to fall into the formulaic molds of beer tourism books. If you'd like to check out the superb local ales and breweries that have sprung up in the vast expanse of Michigan's Upper Peninsula, this fine book is an absolute necessity." --Michael Carrier, MA NYU and author of 15 U.P.
