Another great beer and brewery nostalgia book by Will Anderson -- perhaps one of his most under-rated. Its loaded with hundreds of photos and intriguing information about beer and breweries throughout America. Will's books often have a unique timeless quality, and this book is perhaps the most pronounced in that regard. The material is as fun and refreshing and educational as they day it was published.
