The dramatic and tragic story of St. Louis' notorious Lemp brewery and family is chronicled by author Stephen Walker. The intriguing Lemp saga has everything: suicides, court battles, and, yep, even Lemp ghosts! This is truly a great read.
Excerpted from the Introduction of Lemp: The Haunting History:
The Lemps are best remembered for their untimely deaths, but the story of their lives is even more remarkable: accounts of lofty success, immense wealth, and elite social status, offset by more than one family's share of pain and heartache, bitterness and broken dreams. During their brief and stormy days, the Lemps built one of America's earliest and largest brewing empires, one with a rich and colorful history that deserves to be brought to light.
