My Afternoon at Urban Chestnut

I spent the afternoon Saturday (Sept. 22) signing books at the Oktoberfest of the Urban Chestnut Brewing Company, 3229 Washington Ave. Whenever I spoke to someone, I mentioned that we were a short walk from Olive and Grand, where Germans saved Missouri for the Union in the Camp Jackson Affair on May 10, 1861. (If you don’t know about it, it’s in the book.)

One person who bought a book (two, actually) was William Lemp. He’s an attorney and a descendant of the Lemp brewing family. I wrote about them in the “Beer, Brats, and Baseball” section of my book.

My thanks to Ryan Rakel at Urban Chestnut for giving me space to sell my book.
