With the help of his buddy, John, Preston scores a gig at the same struggling Tampa microbrewery where John and wunderkind brewer Waldie work. Preston soon replaces Waldie as brewmaster and devises a secret scheme to use the job to pry loose $5 million of his father’s inheritance.
His plan appears to hit a snag when, early one morning, Preston discovers a brewery security guard accidentally ground into hamburger by the milling machine. However, Preston’s not going to let this mishap derail things. He calls the one person he knows will help: good, old, dependable, easy-to-guilt, John, who reluctantly caves to Preston’s cover up.
Things go fine until cheapskate brewery owner Harry enters the polluted batch of beer in a tasting contest…and it wins!
Now Preston must devise a way to keep up the winning streak and get his money amid the scrutiny of more mysterious disappearances.
In Trouble Brewing, Paul Abercrombie takes a satirical look at just how far some ambitious microbrewers are willing to go to make a name for themselves and their company. With tongue firmly in cheek, Abercrombie delves deftly into murder, blackmail, and cover ups, all fine ingredients for an award-winning ale, and a great read.
