The 20th edition, Drink Local, features heavyweight New Page Sterling Premium 120# covers with a soft touch varnish, giving them a soft, almost rubbery feel. The logo is varnished with a contrasting gloss, and each book is colored to represent a different brew, with a brief history of each style of beer on the back cover. Inside is our acclaimed Finch Opaque Smooth 50# text paper, with a “Hefeweizen” yellow-orange graph grid. It’s all bound together with bright gold staples.
There are two 3-Pack versions available: Ales and Lagers, limited to 10,000 3-Packs each. Ales features Stout (dark brown-black), Amber Ale (warm red), and India Pale Ale (rusty orange). Lagers features Pilsner (gold), Bock (brown), and Pale Lager (pale yellow).
Included in the packs were two pub-style coasters printed on a vintage press by Liz Isakson-Dado.
Subscribers receive a 6-pack carrier to carry both the sets of memo books, the "Ales" (FNC-20a) and "Lagers" (FNC-20b).
