Despite a brewing pedigree richer than Milwaukee or St. Louis, Cincinnati's role in American beer history is often underappreciated. Drawing on years of research, Michael D. Morgan, author of the award-winning Over-the-Rhine: When Beer Was King, tackles this subject with a fresh perspective. Complete with new findings, the true story of the city's first brewer comes to light, as do the oft-heralded deeds--and overlooked misdeeds--of the beer barons who built empires their progeny drove to ruins. From the story of the Scottish brewery that made Cincy famous for English ales, through forgotten Prohibition political scandals, to the birth and rise of the modern craft beer movement, Cincinnati Beer explores previously untold stories of our beer-soaked past.
