From University of Minnesota Press:

From grain to glass—a complete illustrated history of brewing and breweries in the state more famous for beer than any other
From the global breweries that developed in Milwaukee in the 1870s to the “wildcat” breweries of Prohibition and the upstart craft brewers of today, Doug Hoverson tells the stories of Wisconsin’s rich brewing history. Going beyond the giants like Miller, Schlitz, and Pabst that loom large in the state’s brewing renown, Hoverson delves into the stories of the hundreds of small breweries started by immigrants and entrepreneurs that delivered Wisconsin’s beer from grain to glass.

 

"This beautiful book is to Wisconsin what Doug Hoverson’s Land of Amber Waters is to Minnesota: the state’s definitive history of beer and breweries, a highly readable, exhaustively researched work that is as fun as it is informative. What a story!"
—Kevin Revolinski, author of Wisconsin’s Best Beer Guide
