About this item

St. Louis Brews, Second Edition: The History of Brewing in the Gateway City features hundreds of historical images, a full chronology of the city's long brewing history, fascinating profiles of more than 125 local breweries, and capsules on the craft, regional, and nineteenth-century breweries. Available again in its second edition, the book begins with St. Louis' earliest brewing history—starting in 1809, the date of the city's incorporation, when beer was sometimes cooled in dug-out canoes—and tells the story of how St. Louis came to be one of America's foremost beer towns. That includes detailed backgrounds on St. Louis' beer barons, including Adolphus Busch and Eberhard Anheuser, a look at the city's golden age of brewing during the Belle Epoque, the impacts of Prohibition, and the InBev takeover of Anheuser-Busch in 2009. Finally, it gives the reader an up-to-the-moment look at the city's astonishing craft brewing scene, which began to blossom in 2009 and is now attracting national attention. Everyone in St. Louis loves to drink beer; they may love to drink it all the more knowing the city's rich backstory in beer and brewing.
