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.The breweries featured in the book are: August Schell Breweing Company- New Ulm, MNBells Brewery, Inc.- Kalamazoo, MILakefront Brewery, Inc.- Milwaukee, WIGreat Lakes Brewing Company- Cleveland, OHNew Glarus Brewing Company- New Glarus, WIThree Floyds Brewing Company- Munster, INFounders Brewing Company- Grand Rapids, MICentral Waters Brewing Company- Amherst, WIDark Horse Brewing Company- Marshall, MIPiece Brewing and Pizzeria- Chicago, ILJolly Pumpkin Artisan Ales- Dexter, MIShorts Brewing Company- Bellaire, MISurly Brewing Company- Brooklyn Center, MNMetropolitan Brewing- Chicago, IL5 Rabbit Cerveceria- Bedford Park, ILGreenbush Brewing Company- Sawyer, MISteel Toe Brewing- St.
