What is Amish Hipster?

Amish Hipster is a humor blog and zine written through the perspective of Abe Beachy, a fictitious Amishman from Holmes County Ohio. He has recently moved from Ohio to Austin, Tx, the promise land of Topo Chicos and PBRs. This blog documents his perspective on the similarities and differences between Amish and Hipster cultures.

Who writes Amish Hipster? Is the author currently/formerly Amish?

Josh Hostetler currently lives in Austin, Texas. He grew up in a conservative Mennonite church in Sarasota, FL. His mom and dad grew up in Amish and Conservative Mennonite churches respectively in central Ohio.

What is the purpose of Amish Hipster?

The purpose of Amish Hipster is to make you laugh. Like wet-your-pants-crying laugher. The author does not want to demean anyone; He loves both where he lives and where he came from. We want to make you laugh, and AH hopes that you do laugh. If you don’t laugh, it’s probably because the AmishHipster is too witty for you “to get it”.

Ridicule is his love language.
