Synopsis: In 1975, there was one craft brewery in the United States; today, there are more than 2,300. Powered by millions of savvy, devoted consumers and raking in hundreds of millions annually for producers and retailers, the American craft beer movement has changed the brewing industry and the international reputation of American beer. It has upended the Big Beer giants that once seemed untouchable and forever altered the culinary habits of not only millions of Americans but millions more worldwide.
This delicious story of plucky triumph has never been chronicled in one volume--until now.
Based on thorough research as well as interviews with all of the most influential names in craft brewing since the 1960s, The Audacity of Hops brims with charming, remarkable tales, which together weave a very American business story, one of formidable odds and refreshing success.
The Audacity of Hops will be the holiday and birthday gift for every craft-beer lover--indeed, for anyone who loves fine food and drink, and the people behind them. Entertaining and accessible, this book is the first of its kind: the definitive, highly praised history of the other American revolution.
Discover the underdog story of how America came to dominate beer stylistically in Tom Acitelli's The Audacity of Hops: The History of America's Craft Beer Revolution, the first and only history book on American craft beer.
Based on extensive archival research as well as interviews with the movement's key players going back to the 1960s, this acclaimed book is the most comprehensive chronicle yet of one of the most interesting and lucrative culinary trends in the U.S. since World War II.
Acitelli weaves the story of the rise of American craft beer into the tales of trends like Slow Food and the rebirth of America's urban areas, and paints an unforgettable portrait of plucky entrepreneurial triumph. The backgrounds on all your favorite craft brewers are here, including often forgotten heroes from the movement's earliest days as well as the history of homebrewing since Prohibition.
This is the "book for the craft beer nerd who thinks he or she already knows the story" ( Los Angeles Times) as well as for fans of good food and drink in general.
