I first met Jeremy, I couldn’t believe he was a member of my shul in
Los Altos Hills, California. A young kid, with a wacky but interesting
concept that my beer partner Mark Bronder had coincidentally discussed
years earlier -- a beer for Jews with the same name (HeBrew), but our
initial image was a muscular bicep with a Star of David tattooed on it.
Well, we went in a different direction, and I was enthralled with
Jeremy, his idea, and his incredible sense of humor and passion. This
man knows how to build a brand from scratch, and reading his story is a
fascinating, can’t-put-the-book-down read. Just don’t read it from right
to left.” -Pete Slosberg, founder of Pete’s Wicked Ale
believe in tikkun olam, repairing the world, but in a world beset by
natural and man-made disasters, it often seems impossible for
individuals to make a meaningful impact. While he may not have cured
cancer or ended the Middle East conflict, Jeremy Cowan has performed two
exceedingly worthy deeds -- creating a world-class beer and telling a
compelling, entertaining, and engagingly transgressive story. L’Chaim!” -Richard
Block, Senior Rabbi, The Temple - Tifereth Israel, Cleveland, Ohio and
president-elect of the Central Conference of American Rabbis (CCAR)
his new book Craft Beer Bar Mitzvah, Jeremy Cowan combines the heart of
a brewer with the soul of a two-thousand-year-old rabbinical mensch. A
must-read on how to get from there (a crazy dream) to here successfully
in beer.” -Tom Dalldorf, Publisher, Celebrator Beer News
funny, irreverent account of one man’s quest to build a beer brand,
wandering the desert landscape of bad beer to let his people drink the
good stuff. A wry tale of how it took thirteen years to turn Shmaltz
Brewing into an overnight sensation.” -Jay Brooks, Brookston Beer Bulletin
