Description
Information
"When waves of immigrants arrived in the Midwest in the 19th century they promptly began brewing beer. Not long ago, Milwaukee was thought to be the capital city of American beer and many of the best known national brands emerged from the breweries of the upper Midwest. More recently, as consumers became more interested in variety and freshness, there has been a boom of micro-breweries throughout the region offering a wide range of craft beers. In his Beer Guide to the Heartland, Michael Agnew shows how widespread the boom has been, and how it has been kept booming by breweries' close attention to quality and consumer preferences. Agnew explains the basics of brewing beer, the rise, fall, and rise again of major labels, and describes the offerings of 200different breweries in Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, and Wisconsin. The Guide makes it possible for beer lovers to tour breweries near and far, experience for themselves what the different breweries offer, and make their own comparisons. Agnew identifies the breweries' specialties, their origins, their equipment, their capacity, and their brands, many of which are seasonal. He says which breweries allow tours, which sell on site, which have tasting rooms or attached pubs, and whether they also serve food. He doesn't hesitate to recommend the beers he likes best"--Provided by publisher.
