“Chronicles Maine’s rather complicated relationship with alcohol over the years, and offers histories and profiles of more than 30 brewing companies.” —The Ellsworth American

In the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, Maine was a stronghold for the temperance movement, but the Pine Tree State emerged from Prohibition to create a beer culture that rivals any other in the United States. Early pioneers, like D. L. Geary, established the Northeast’s love affair with English-style ales, and today’s upstarts brew unique and inventive recipes. Maine brewers create beer for every palate, and Maine’s unique flavors—like blueberries, potatoes and even oysters—are frequently featured. Maine beer expert Josh Christie discovers the story of brewing in Vacationland by exploring Maine’s large breweries, like Shipyard; its local crafters, like Rising Tide; the budding cider, spirits and mead industries; and, of course, the best places to drink across the state.

“The book explores the history of beer and beer brewing in Maine, starting with the formation of the state and continuing to the present day.” —Shelf Awareness
