Had soo sooo much fun reading this book. Read it from beginning to end traveling through our amazing country. I really have no interest in beer and don't do the brewery thing per se, but LOVE learning about our country's history and TOTALLY RESPECT the fact that our nation's breweries are keeping our history alive....a necessary reprieve from the current mood of the country. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in learning snapshots of things often not found in other history books. Each page is a new adventure! :)
