Dom Cook discovered craft beer by accident. A Bronx father searching for inspiration after the death of his infant son, he picked up The Search for God and Guinness, his eye drawn to “Search for God.”

It’s a book about Ireland’s Arthur Guinness brewing family and its mission to provide homes, education, and health care for employees in the 1700s. “My family and I had been doing a lot of work in the community,” Cook says. “After the book, I thought: Damn, you can change the world through beer.”
