About the Book

The rise and fall of Chicago’s brewing industry plays out in this fascinating book. Skilnik takes readers back to the beginning of an industry that once wielded tremendous influence, wealth, and power to contemporary Chicago, where some of the nation’s biggest breweries battle to fill the void left by the closing of local old-time breweries. From the days of Al Capone and Prohibition through the rise of national beer brands in the Windy City, this book serves up a heady dose of beer history. Much more than a timeline, Beer is a definitive, but fun-to-read volume filled with anecdotes and little-known facts. A treasure for history buffs, Chicago fans, beer connoisseurs, and collectors of breweriana.
