    I caddied on a golf course in Idaho for years. I mention this because, in Idaho you cannot purchase liquor before 10 am. This was ALWAYS news to my guests and they were usually on vacation and in desperate need of a cocktail. This is the book that every vacationer needs. Plus, its really an enjoyable and fun read. I highly recommend it!

    I love books like these! Full of amazing, quirky little tidbits about drinking laws in America. It could either go too basic or too academic, but Ganong did a good job straddling between these two realms.

    The Field Guide is something you can easily flick through at home, taking in interesting tidbits about states you've lived in or want to visit, but it's also a great resource for traveling or taking on road trips. When the alcohol laws usually change from state to state, it's easy to get frustrated when you didn't know you couldn't buy alcohol after a certain time on Sundays or aren't allowed to bring your own wine to a restaurant. This will help you get around that and plan accordingly, and, bo The Field Guide is something you can easily flick through at home, taking in interesting tidbits about states you've lived in or want to visit, but it's also a great resource for traveling or taking on road trips.

    This is a solid gift book for your drinkin' travelin' friends, especially those with a penchant for history and cultural minutiae. Great fodder for a trivia night. The organizational structure threw me off at first (by region rather than by state), but this opens up the possibility of comparing trends between regions. That said, each state is surprisingly different, making this an excellent resource that brings together the unexpected legal nuances of alcohol consumption into one place.

    If I was more of a history / fun-fact fan, I'd have liked this book more. But, looking at it objectively, it does a great job delivering information of state liquor laws, as well as throwing in fun tidbits and colorful graphics that make the facts stick. I loved reading about the states I've lived in, and as a bartender, I learned some cool facts to pass along the line. If I was more of a history / fun-fact fan, I'd have liked this book more.

    A great and fun way to learn about the responsibilities of drinking in any state. The book is equal parts humor and information! I cant help but think that if driving laws were framed this way, people may be much better drivers. Makes for a very cute present, or could be used ironically as a way to test friends about the laws of drinking, as a drinking game. A fun book to have on-hand!

    The Field Guide is a fun read, whether you are just learning about different states treatment of alcohol or using it as a guide when traveling across the U.S. Coming from the Pacific Northwest, and not being a beer drinker, it was fun to learn why grapes grow so well in our region, since it’s the same latitude and climate as Burgundy, France, and why I should visit more of the wineries around me. While this isn’t a cocktail book per se, it would be cool to know if each state had a signature drin The Field Guide is a fun read, whether you are just learning about different states treatment of alcohol or using it as a guide when traveling across the U.S. Coming from the Pacific Northwest, and not being a beer drinker, it was fun to learn why grapes grow so well in our region, since it’s the same latitude and climate as Burgundy, France, and why I should visit more of the wineries around me.
