Summary
Starting with the first brewery in 1849, Doug Hoverson tells the story of the state's beer industry from the small-town breweries that gave way to larger companies with regional and national prominence, including Hamm's, Grain Belt, and Schell's, to the vibrant beer culture of today, led by a new wave of breweries such as Summit, Lake Superior Brewing Co., and Surly, and brewpubs like Town Hall Brewery, Fitger's, and Granite City Brewpub, and sustained by microbreweries, home brewers, and beer aficionados
