...I'm also scheduled to appear at the MoreBeer store in Concord, CA at 3pm on Saturday, April 23rd to sign books.  They'll have them for sale there as well.  Come out and say hi, and feel free to bring some beer to share ...I've heard from Brewers Publications that pre-sales to AHA members have been very strong.  Thanks to you all.
Great news! I don't need any more of an excuse for the 5-hour round-trip drive to MoreBeer. I hope they will let those of us who bought your book through BeerTown to get them signed. I'll bring my Citra IPA too (though, judging from another thread, Citra is not everyone's favorite hop), it might distract them. Besides, who can go to MoreBeer without spending under $100 anyway? It's nearly impossible.

That's Easter weekend and my better half is a minister, which actually makes Saturday quite feasible ("let me stay out of your hair!") assuming I can stomach crossing the Bay Bridge on a weekend (as I do this every work day).

Gordon, are you having any SF readings/appearances?

Don't worry, I'll sign it.  And I do like Citra.

I'm flying in and out of SFO, and will probably be drinking in SF and Oakland (and Pacheco).  But no other formal appearances planned yet.  Readings?  That's a good one...  I'll likely be in SF Friday night when I first get in.  Might go to the Monk's Kettle.  I'll tweet about it when I get there.  I'm hooking up with Nathan Smith and Nicole Erny as my native guides, so I'm likely to wind up wherever they have the most IPAs and Belgian beers.  ;)

If I'm out and about and tweet about it, feel free to stop by.  But if you go to MoreBeer, I do want to try your beer.

I got a notice that my copy shipped today.  I'll need to learn how to read off paper again.  My Kindle is spoiling me.  8^)

Hot darn! Life is good. See you there.

BTW, I was just at MoreBeer last Sunday. They give AHA members a discount.

Still didn't get mine and I ordered it on the first day it was available.  I think the AHA sends things to me through Europe.

VA, huh?  Perhaps the FBI wanted to look it over first.  ;)

I'm a little late to this party, but I just placed my order. Very interested in what you have to say, Gordon!  8)

Just got my copy in the mail.  I'll try reading it once I remove all the damn glue that's on the top from the mailing envelope...

Got my shipping notice on Tuesday I think.  Still waiting patiently in Oregon, I'm sure it'll be here shortly.  Where do they ship from?
Thank you BEER!
