Locally Brewed celebrates the Midwest's craft brewing movement with profiles of 20 of the area's brewmasters and their breweries. These are entertaining and inspiring stories of the individuals who have been essential in the exponential growth of this movement, as told through vivid interviews, beautiful photography, and dynamic artwork. In just the past 20 years, beer has been transformed from a "low-class" drink to a pluralistic, populist drink with the same stylistic diversity and caring craftsmanship as wine. One of the strongest hotbeds of this cultural shift is in the Midwest, where independently owned craft brewers focus on the creative, artisanal elements of the beer-making process. Locally Brewed explores these trends and the fun, fascinating, and unique details of each brewery, including label art, hand-pull designs, and of course the brews themselves. This is a book that can be enjoyed by the “beer geek” and the casual imbiber alike, as it emphasizes the people behind the beer as well as the beers they brew. Special sidebars and pullouts show what makes each brewery special, weaving together the story of the indie beer movement, relevant to both small-town Midwesterners and big-city beer lovers.

The Northeast has experienced an explosion of microbreweries and brew pubs producing a fascinating array of beers from IPAs to stouts, lagers, and porters. The number of microbreweries has grown by leaps and bounds since the first edition of this guide was published nearly twenty years. Now, Kate Cone has traveled the length and breadth of the region to both research the breweries profiled in the first edition and the newcomers that have sprung up since, and of course to sample their products. The new volume includes interviews with the brewers, anecdotes and stories about the breweries and brewpubs, as well as directions, information about their hours of operation, their menus, and even some recipes. The breweries are not ranked, as beer preference is so subjective, but Cone does share her personal experiences and opinions. She covers every brewery in the region, so she's able to help you find the places, but it's up to you to determine which you like the best.

Over the past thirty-plus years, the beer industry in the United States has slowly transformed itself from the butt of international jokes (courtesy of Prohibition and the subsequent dominance of mass-produced, lifeless lagers) to the most innovative and delicious craft beer culture on the planet. No region of the country has been more influential in helping shape and inspire the craft beer movement than Northern California. Following Fritz Maytag's revitalization of San Francisco's Anchor Brewing in the mid-1960s and the establishment of New Albion Brewing Company in Sonoma in the decade afterward, current brewing innovators such as Sierra Nevada Brewing Company and Russian River Brewing continue to ensure that there's never been a better time or place to seek out great beer. The Northern California Craft Beer Guide is the definitive handbook to the artistry, people, and culture of the region's craft beer scene. Beer writer Ken Weaver and photographer Anneliese Schmidt have invested months of precious drinking time into visiting the furthest corners of Northern California and tasting everything the region has to offer - from the latest Belgian-style beers coming out of Arcata to the newest beer-centric burger joint in Santa Cruz, to the phenomenal brews of Central Valley nobody's ever heard of -- to create a guide that does this beer scene justice. Encompassing breweries, beer bars, restaurants, bottle shops, and homebrew shops (as well as plenty of other people and places that were just too cool to leave out), The Northern California Craft Beer Guide is a collection of over three hundred entries and topics highlighting the very best the region has to offer.

Brewed in Michigan

The New Golden Age of Brewing in the Great Beer State

Brewed in Michigan: The New Golden Age of Brewing in the Great Beer State is William Rapai’s “Ode on a Grecian Urn”—a discussion of art and art’s audience. The art in this case is beer. Craft beer. Michigan craft beer, to be exact. Like the Great Lakes and the automobile, beer has become a part of Michigan’s identity. In 2016, Michigan ranked fifth in the number of craft breweries in the nation and tenth in the nation in craft beer production. Craft brewing now contributes more than $1.8 billion annually to the state’s economy and is proving to be an economic catalyst, helping to revive declining cities and invigorate neighborhoods. This book is not a beer-tasting guide. Instead, Rapai aims to highlight the unique forces behind and exceptional attributes of the leading craft breweries in Michigan. Through a series of interviews with brewmasters over an eighteenth-month sojourn to microbreweries around the state, the author argues that Michigan craft beer is brewed by individuals with a passion for excellence who refuse to be process drones. It is brewed by people who have created a culture that values quality over quantity and measures tradition and innovation in equal parts. Similarly, the taprooms associated with these craft breweries have become a conduit for conversation—places for people to gather and discuss current events, raise money for charities, and search for ways to improve their communities. They’re places where strangers become friends, friends fall in love, and lovers get married. These brewpubs and taprooms are an example in resourcefulness—renovating old churches and abandoned auto dealerships in Michigan’s biggest cities, tiny suburbs, working-class neighborhoods, and farm towns. Beer, as it turns out, can be the lifeblood of a community. Brewed in Michigan is a book for beer enthusiasts and for people who want a better understanding of what makes Michigan beer special. Cheers!

The Craft Beer Revolution

How a Band of Microbrewers Is Transforming the World's Favorite Drink

Over the past 40 years craft-brewed beer has exploded in growth. In 1980, a handful of "microbrewery" pioneers launched a revolution that would challenge the dominance of the national brands, Budweiser, Coors, and Miller, and change the way Americans think about, and drink, beer. Today, there are more than 2,700 craft breweries in the United States and another 1,500 are in the works. Their influence is spreading to Europe's great brewing nations, and to countries all over the globe. In The Craft Beer Revolution, Steve Hindy, co-founder of Brooklyn Brewery, tells the inside story of how a band of homebrewers and microbrewers came together to become one of America's great entrepreneurial triumphs. Beginning with Fritz Maytag, scion of the washing machine company, and Jack McAuliffe, a US Navy submariner who developed a passion for real beer while serving in Scotland, Hindy tells the story of hundreds of creative businesses like Deschutes Brewery, New Belgium, Dogfish Head, and Harpoon. He shows how their individual and collective efforts have combined to grab 10 percent of the dollar share of the US beer market. Hindy also explores how Budweiser, Miller, and Coors, all now owned by international conglomerates, are creating their own craft-style beers, the same way major food companies have acquired or created smaller organic labels to court credibility with a new generation of discerning eaters and drinkers. This is a timely and fascinating look at what America's new generation of entrepreneurs can learn from the intrepid pioneering brewers who are transforming the way Americans enjoy this wonderful, inexpensive, storied beverage: beer.
