Review

A series of engrossing meticulously researched historic vignettes"  -The Chicago Reader

"One of the top five gift books for beer lovers"  -The Chicago Tribune


"Beer nerds and history buffs will find common ground while reading this quirky volume, which uses Chicago-area breweries as an entry point into the city s broader history. The author, public-policy scholar and suds enthusiast Denese Neu, uses 15 taprooms as starting points for what she calls "bar stool stories"--essentially, local lore about the neighborhood that you might hear from an old-timer over a cold pint. Mostly, the connection is tangential: The location of the Goose Island brewpub in Wrigleyville (home of the Cubs) serves as a launchpad for a treatise on the city's sporting past. Other times, there s a more concrete (if still whimsical) connection: A visit to Crown Brewing in the nearby town of Crown Point, Indiana, leads to the story of notorious bank robber John Dillinger, who was locked up in (and ultimately escaped from) a jail, part of which is now the brewery." --Andrew Frisicano Time Out New York

About the Author

Denise Neu earned her PhD at the University of New Orleans and now resides in Chicago's Andersonville neighborhood. In addition to a career in public policy and community development, she is a humanities scholar and longtime craft beer enthusiast. Combining her love of great beer and her training as an urban social scientist, she hopes that you will enjoy her pint-sized history lessons along with your pint.

This is a great book for someone who loves history, craft beer, Chicago or better yet, the combination of those things.

I was expecting more of a specific history for each brewery, however, the history surrounds the area/location of the brewery, rather than the brewery's history. Each chapter starts with a few sentences regarding the brewery, then it moves on. I was a bit disappointed at first by this, but got over it after a few chapters. It's an easy read with some interesting facts. I imagine it's hard to do a history of Chicago breweries when the majority of them have only been open for a few years (when the book was written.)

Note: If you're looking for the history of the actual brewery (as I was), this is not the book for you.

Since I am interested in craft beer, I found this book highly informative to craft beer locations and their history in Chicago. I highly recommend this book. It has led me to several locations that I would not have tried before.
