Yesterday saw the release of a new book detailing the history of craft beer and how it has come to be the juggernaut it is today. The book is written by Steve Hindy, who not only is co-founder of Brooklyn Brewing Company, but has journalism experience as an Associated Press correspondent in the 1980’s. This should ensure a level of professionalism in the prose as Hindy discusses not only the rise of Brooklyn, which got its start in 1988, but the beginnings of a variety of craft brew titans. From Deschutes to Dogfish Head, Hindy explores each companies unique approach to craft beer. Hindy also delves into the nations current preocupation with all things micro, and how big players Budweiser and Coors have formed their own craft divisions.
The book is available on Amazon in both Kindle and Hardcover formats. We here at Blind Tiger like to read almost as much as we like to drink, and should be able to provide a review in the following weeks. For those needing a craft beer book buzz now, can follow the link here.
