More About Wagner Rich

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Beginning in 1980, when he set out to visit all nine of Pennsylvania's breweries that were still in business, the author's path seems to have been one of total immersion. Traveling throughout the state, he began to notice the hulking remains of long-gone breweries dotting the landscape and set out to create a photographic inventory of all standing brewery buildings in Pennsylvania. At the time this book was written, he had visited well over four hundred sites and found something to photograph at nearly half of them. By 1983, Rich tried his hand at home-brewing and, before long, had set up a gas-fired system in a friend's basement, utilizing an old beer keg as a kettle. In 1990, he interpreted colonial brewing using replicas of seventeenth-century equipment at Pennsbury Manor, a reconstruction of William Penn's country estate on the Delaware River. Within three years, he had worked with a cooper over an eight-month period to manufacture his own system, starting with two cypress logs. That year, he went on a cross-country journey to demonstrate brewing techniques of antiquity. He was a high school science teacher who traveled extensively during the summers, visiting national parks and geologic sites throughout the nation and, during the 1980s, as the craft brewing renaissance began to take hold, found many craft breweries to visit as well. To date, he has visited well over six hundred breweries throughout the United States and Canada. His research into Pennsylvania breweries continued, becoming deeper and more serious as he visited libraries and historical societies and amassed a great deal of information. Rich became involved with breweriana collectors and joined some of their organizations. He also became connected to the Society of Industrial Archeology. Rich developed tours of breweries past and present for Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, the Lehigh Valley, Wilkes-Barre/Scranton and south-central Pennsylvania. Some of these were sponsored by breweriana clubs and others by historical societies and other organizations. He published guidebooks to go with each tour, and he also issued a number of posters. Finally, the inevitable came when his avocation overtook his vocation. Rich took very early retirement from his teaching career in order to participate in the emerging craft brewing industry. He attended the Siebel Institute of Technology in Chicago, where he received a diploma in brewing technology and spent seven years working in Philadelphia's craft breweries. He has spent a decade as an officer of District Philadelphia, Master Brewers Association of the Americas, most of that time as secretary and membership chair. He currently spends his time researching and writing about Pennsylvania breweries and brewing techniques of antiquity. He is a public speaker and demonstrates colonial brewing.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Already positively influenced!  Feb 16, 2009
It has taken me several months to complete this challenging book. I would read a chapter and then chew on it for days or even weeks. I'm not kidding. This book is that kind of a book. You need to chew on it, swallow it, and then let its message marinade in your mind and heart. As a pastor to students and parents, I provided copies at a recent parent meeting, and I encouraged all the dads to get a copy. This book has already positively influenced some major decisions that I have recently made in my life with ministry, family, money, time management, etc. Thanks Rich, for going ahead of us like a Sherpa to prepare the route to the summit. I have officially left base camp and am heading for the "death zone." Praise God for someone who speaks a language that men can understand (at least I do).
Valuable tool for father's who see the need to rethink their roles  Nov 23, 2008
This is a challenging book that directly addresses the myth that many men (including myself) have fallen victim to. Namely, that being the financial leader (provider) is the primary duty of the father. Instead, Rich artfully asserts that a father's primary duty is to be the (at home) pastor to his family; which easily gets lost in this age of professional ambition.

This book is a valuable tool, particularly for father's who now see the need to take a more direct approach in leading their families. Thanks for the challenge Rich!
The Expeditionary Man  Jul 14, 2008
This book was a tremendous encouragement to read, as it championed the role of a man as adventurer and leader. It wonderfully challenges the typical gutless advice of balancing your responsibilities. I've never thought that passion was well served by limiting everything. This book retells the rediscovery of a man's calling with the real and allegorical view of mastering a mountain, not as a loner but as a team leader. The bumpersticker, media, and movie catch phrases are far from timeless, but this is today's challenge.

Reading this book didn't completely negate the wise advice of my mentor, who, when I first arrived at Harvard Medical School, holding up his hand to count fingers would say you could, 1. Be a doctor, 2. Teacher, 3. Professor, 4. Make money or 5. See your family, but you could only have two. In reality it is only in part true that we can have everything, but not all at once. Like Jim Elliot, `Wherever you are, be all there' (pg 26)... you can't be elsewhere.

It is absolutely true that we have to shake off the drive to succeed and take on the call to purpose. What is written on your heart? (pg 20) Can you acknowledge God as its true owner? (pg 26) Will you pursue it to the end, and live a life worthy of that calling [Eph 4:1] (pg 115). I pray, as I'm sure Rich does, that you will ask for the necessary courage, as you face the tasks that only you can do. You are irreplaceably made in God's image, as you.

Richard Penson
This book will challenge and motivate every man as they look at "structure" of their life. Rich's book has challenged me to examine my life and what I place as my priorities.

Dad's doing discipleship  Jun 24, 2008
I have been a leader of Men's Ministries for over 10 years and I'm delighted to recommend this book. 'The Expeditionary Man' addresses many of the issue facing men today. Rich brings adventure and excitement back into the fatherhood arena. This book is a must read for all dads Christians and non-Christian, every dad needs to understand his powerful role in leading the family. Discovering the purpose and passion every dad needs as he directs and distills wisdom & leadership to his family. Every father will shape and mold the destiny of the next generation. Rich, motivates and illustrates the unique role of the dad, guiding fathers to keep the main thing the main thing. THANKS RICH!
