Louisville Breweries is one of those books where the title simply doesn't do it justice. This book is loaded! (See Table of Contents below.) Sure, it tells the definitive history of the breweries of Louisville, Kentucky, but it also expands into valuable historical discussions of all kinds of topics related to brewing -- early brewery equipment, the cooperage industry, early brewing styles, saloons, malthouses, and much more. Features hundreds of photos and illustrations. Also includes some information on brewery sites in New Albany and Jefferson, Indiana. Just a great all-around brewing history book.
