Featured writer: Jason WIlson

Jason Wilson, spirits writer

This week’s featured writer is Jason Wilson, the wry and insightful author of Boozehound: On The Trail of the Rare, the Obscure, and the Overrated in Spirits. His new project is a series of digital wine guides called Planet of the Grapes. Jason writes about wine for Philly.com and is formerly the spirits columnist for the Washington Post. His columns have won an award for Best Newspaper Food Column from the Association of Food Journalists three out of the past five years.

Like many cocktail people, he felt compelled to buy a stupid hat in New Orleans. He believes it is a stetson. Predictably, he looks terrible wearing it. Follow Jason Wilson on Twitter @boozecolumnist.

Come hear Jason read from his work at Jimmy’s 43 on Tuesday, December 3, and pick up a signed copy of Boozehound for your holiday gift list. (Maybe I should mention that the last time we had Boozehound for sale at a Drink.Think event, Jason’s reading was hilarious and we ran out of his books in record time? Nah, maybe not.)
