Brewing Local: American-Grown Beer (Paperback)

Brewing Local: American-Grown Beer By Stan Hieronymus Cover Image


At the forefront of the locavore movement, brewers use locally grown ingredients and cultivated and foraged flora to produce beers that capture the terroir. Telling the history of distinctly colonial and American beers, the author visits farm breweries, and goes foraging for yeast, plants, trees, roots, and mushrooms to create unique beers.
