Houston Beer is written in a chronological fashion and it introduces the reader to several personalities and the breweries they built; brewing operations that have employed thousands and helped form the Houston area's identity for more than one hundred fifty years. Longtime residents of Houston may recognize some of the companies such as Magnolia Brewing, Southern Select, Gulf Brewing, and others. These breweries made a name for themselves long before the current crop of microbreweries and the dominance of Anheuser- Busch. The people behind these breweries were often just as eccentric as the products they produced and Houston Beer effectively acquaints the reader with this slice of Houston's past, both on a business and personal level.
Younger residents of Houston and those who have lived here for a relatively short time will enjoy the books closing chapters best, for it is here that Houston beer discusses the brewpub craze that strongly influenced the 1990's as well as the current popularity of craft breweries in the city.Read more ›
But, even though I purchased the book solely to learn about the pre-1970 history of Houston brewing, I'm not upset in the least to get half a book. He didn't have to write about Grand Prize or Magnolia or Dixie Pale at all, and I'm happy he did (and did fairly well, at that).
