Gregg Smith's narrative is a lively retelling of early American history. It portrays beer as a major player, and brilliantly reconstructs the cultural and political context out of which it rose. One of the most important but little-known aspects of early American history is the role of beer in our country's founding and formative years. This definitive account of beer's impact on people and events that shaped the birth of a nation will astonish readers. Beginning with the pre-colonial era and ending with America's emergence as an industrial power, this book is a fresh and swiftly flowing adventure. Among his many surprising revelations are the reason the Mayflower really landed at Plymouth; our first prohibition; brewing in the colonies; George Washington and Thomas Jefferson as homebrewers; and forging the Constitution after hours over beer.
