Dane Huckelbridge charts the surprisingly fascinating history of Americans' relationship with their most popular alcoholic beverage. Huckelbridge shows how beer has evolved along with the country-- from the time when every American city has its own brewery and iconic beer brand to the rise of global mega-brands like Budweiser and Miller that are synonymous with US capitalism. We learn about nineteenth-century beer barons like Captain Frederick Pabst, Adolphus Busch, and Joseph Schlitz, and how their brewing empires tied in the with American immigrant experience, as well of brewing and bottling technology that allowed beer to flow in the saloons of the Wild West.
