A delightful read, chockfull of information on brews and brewing. The story of beer in America is more complicated, and infinitely more interesting, than you would think. I gained an appreciation for the titans of industry, Busch and Pabst and uihilein, the origins of the single issue political group (ban beer!), and deep respect for the craft brewers of the modern age. For instance, Jim Koch, founder of Sam Adams, made his company the 6th largest brewery by brewing *great beer* and being a savvy businessman.
