St. Louis Brews, Second Edition: The History of Brewing in the Gateway City features hundreds of historical images, a full chronology of the city's long brewing history, fascinating profiles of more than 125 local breweries, and capsules on the craft, regional, and nineteenth-century breweries. Available again in its second edition, the book begins with St. Louis' earliest brewing history-starting in 1809, the date of the city's incorporation, when beer was sometimes cooled in dug-out canoes-and tells the story of how St. Louis came to be one of America's foremost beer towns.
