Elizabeth Rudd and the Heinzelmannchen Brewery in Sylva, NC have published a cookbook that includes stories, tips and recipes using their beer.
The 6 year-old brewery was featured in the November, 2009 issue of Southern Living magazine in an article entitled German Beer Comes to Sylva.
The Brewery believes in eco-friendly practices, such as selling their beer in 2-liter glass “growlers” that are refilled rather than thrown away or recycled. The beer contains no preservatives and is not pasteurized. It was because of these values and principles that they chose Barefoot Press for the printing of Your Gnometown Cookbook.
Elizabeth puts it this way: “…the West and the East of North Carolina teamed up on this project. Though diverse in their fields of expertise, they have much in common: excellence, quality, experience and a personal touch. Working for a profit, yes, but without sacrificing the personal bonds they share with their customers – rare in today’s business world. They both share a commitment to quality and offer products they are proud to put their names on… I believe this is a shining example of businesses working together, with integrity and care, for a common goal… a win-win situation for all.”
The cookbook is a fine example of green printing. The pages are printed with soy inks on 100% post-consumer recycled, chlorine-free paper, and the covers are made from 100% recycled French Paper Muscletone 140# cover. The binding is wire-O so the book lays flat for easy reading while cooking, but the coil is hidden behind a printed spine so it fits right in on the bookshelf. The book can be ordered at the company’s website: yourgnometownbrewery.com, or you can pick up a copy at the Brewery gift shop. Lift a pint for us!
