From the Author
I've brought stories to life from city's earliest brewers to the heyday of Brewerytown in the late nineteenth century. Long forgotten names and logos are celebrated in this rich tapestry of lore associated with the brewers who made Philadelphia "One Big Brewerytown."
This book is for anyone who has an interest in beer and history and enjoys the proliferation of world class beer being made in Philadelphia today.
