Something about straws & camels backs.

Oh, The Dead Rise Old Bay Cookbook.

Say what you will about people that drink with any regularity, but they aren't widely regarded as the most consistent or dependable people. As with everything during my tenure at Flying Dog Brewery, this project was way more of a headache than it was probably worth, but being that we had done a previous cookbook a few years prior that I wasn't 100% happy with, I wanted to knock this one out of the park.

I'm really happy with the end result. Jay Fleming and Tim Martin did an outstanding job with the photography and altogether its an incredibly beautiful finished product.

If anything good came out of this project, it gave me that final push to take the initiative and get a job that I'm passionate about. Sometimes a slap in the face is all you need to wake up.
