Wyatt Montgomery knows a barrel of legendary Zoria imperial stout will help his Denver gastropub stay on top. The only problem is the brewery that made it is no longer in business. When Wyatt hears the brewmaster has only one barrel left, he won’t stop until it’s his. He doesn’t consider what this mythical barrel might cost him. And he certainly doesn’t anticipate his reaction to the heart-stoppingly beautiful brewmaster he needs to convince to sell him the beer.

When Wyatt rushes into Bec Dempsey’s small-town cooperative offering to buy the last barrel of her precious Zoria, she’s thrown for a loop. She’s been burned by city-slickers before, and she’ll be damned if she’ll let it happen again. But when things start heating up between them, Bec decides to make Wyatt a counteroffer. One she hopes he won’t refuse.

     This was an interesting story about beers.  And those that make it.  But really, it’s about a betrayal of not only a friend to Bec Dempsey but a friend of her brothers and someone she was dating and her lover.  You see Bec was one of three owners of Antero Brewing.
     There was herself, her brother, Liam, and Colin a trust fund baby.  They were doing good on their way and had just produced a beer generating a lot of buzzes the Zoria, the golden ticket they thought.
     When all of a sudden, Colin pays off the property and half of all the bills and walks away.  Saying nothing.  Leaving close friends in the community holding the bag on some purchases he had made for making more beer.  So, by the time Bec figured out he wasn’t coming back she had a lot of people mad at her then.
     In Denver, at his ‘gastropub’, Quaff, Wyatt Montgomery was going through his own mini crisis.  A new place had gone in down the road along the same lines pulling his customers.  Which of course making him nervous.
     His bartenders said not to worry that place is just a fad and not a good one they will be back.  But he did beer drinkers was his bread and butter.  He was wondering what he could do to bring them back when a customer told him about a myth of a beer called Zoria.  That he had heard of and in fact had tasted just once.  The brewery went under but there might be one barrel left over.  So, if he wanted a coup that would be it.  He asked where he could start he said “Antero.”
     So, Wyatt was off to Antero to find an owner and comes upon someone who knows an owner.  He speaks with her and will let’s just say, “Let the games begin.”

     It wasn’t a fast-paced book at all.  More like slow and lazy but fun and interesting.  The dynamics of the characters and their treats are worth it.  I give this: 4 stars.  Provided by  Follow us at
