Small Beer Press was founded in 2000 by Gavin J. Grant and Kelly Link. Here's a somewhat dated and very informal Small Beer history.

Stranger Things HappenWhat

Small Beer Press exists to publish good writing. We publish a twice-yearly tiny lit journal (aka a zine), an occasional chapbook, and beginning in July 2001 books. Our first two books were trade paperback short fiction collections by Kelly Link (Stranger Things Happen) and Ray Vukcevich (Meet Me in the Moon Room).
