Beer’s near-magical ability to make bad situations better was put to the ultimate test back in 1967 when Marine Corps vet and merchant mariner John “Chick” Donohue decided to take a backpack full of beer from NYC to his buddies currently serving in the Vietnam War. The fact that he made it is only slightly more awe-inspiring than the series of near-misses, hilarious episodes, and unforgettable encounters he endured along the way.
Told in his own words and the words of the guys he miraculously met up with in Vietnam, The Greatest Beer Run Ever: A Memoir of Friendship, Loyalty, and War is a feel-good, wild ride of a memoir that will soon be turned into a movie directed by Peter Farrelly, the guy behind the Oscar-winning Green Book and Teen Choice Award-winning There’s Something About Mary. Read the book now before the rush.
