Dr. Borer Publishes New Book!
Dr. Michael Ian Borer published his latest book Vegas Brews: Craft Beer and the Birth of a Local Scene (NYU Press). This urban ethnography shows how craft beer has been used as both a social lubricant and social adhesive that has, quite literally, changed the way Las Vegas tastes. "Rich in ethnographic detail," writes Northwestern University professor Claudio Benzecry, "Vegas Brews is a great contribution to the study of how culture can shape the city landscape, and how cities, in turn, can shape culture." Dr. Borer's book has already been noted in local media, and he's been a featured guest at a number of craft beer-related events.
