To celebrate our 24th year of publishing Marz Community Brewing Co's made us a brew called The Lumpen IPA. This Brown IPA is a malty little baby, hopped with Falconer's Flight. The blend is comprised of many of the Northwest's most unique hop varieties, including Citra, Simcoe, and Sorachi Ace along with experimental hops and numerous other NW varieties. Each hop has been hand selected for its superior aromatic qualities, imparting distinct tropical, citrus, floral, lemon and grapefruit tones.

All in all it's gonna be a special evening.
Hope to see you there.

Brian Mier Slow Ride

Lumpen Publishing presents:

Slow Ride - By Brian Mier -
ISBN: 978-0-9905023-0-2

[ Purchase as a Blurb Book
]

We are pleased to announce the occassion of printing our first Lumpen novel. It is by Brian Mier, a long time contibutor and Editor of Lumpen magazine.

Brian Mier grew up on the North Side of Chicago and has lived in Brazil since 1999.  He is currently a policy analyst at the Centro de Direitos Economicos e Sociais. From 2007 to 2012 he was a member of the national directorate of the Brazilian National Urban Reform Forum (FNRU). He has worked with the Landless Peasants Movement (MST) and was a two time speaker at the World Social Forum. Brian has written extensively on Brazilian news and culture for the underground press over the years. His writing has appeared in Lumpen and Vice, and elsewhere.


About SlowRide

A double-trailer rig winds its way slowly through the Brazilian countryside.  Zeca, an old-fashioned, macho truck driver decides to break up with his wife. As he drives along, his niece ridicules his sexist ways. Slow Ride is an anti-adventure travel story created through mixing audio transcriptions of a real truck ride with fictional and expository passages. Inspired by Sam Miller's "Delhi: Adventures in a Megacity", it finds the humor in mundane events and offers a window into Brazil, a country struggling to reconcile the old with the new.
