Publisher: Will Anderson, 1976.
Soft Cover, 160 pages, 11 x 8.5.
Without question, this is Will's most sought-after book -- and the hardest to find. Copies surface only occasionally, and beer enthusiasts usually scramble to get it. Its the complete story of Brooklyn's brewery history, with hundreds of great old photographs, stories and breweriana. The foreword was written by Rudolph J. Schaefer, one-time head of Brooklyn's venerable old F & M Schaefer Brewing Company.
CONDITION: Excellent. This is copy is numbered 100 out of 1,000 and signed by the author. The only flaw in this copy is on the title page, where a former owner placed his name and address twice using an ink-stamp, one of which has been scratched out using ink pen. Not terribly intrusive. See pics below. Otherwise the book is extremely clean inside and out.
