From the cover: 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 live affair with English-style ales, and today's upstarts brew unique and inventive recipes. Maine beer expert Josh Christie discovers to 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.
