Five Urban Legends of American Beer History
Posted by Bob Skilnik on March 2, 2007
As I was doing research for Beer & Food: An American History, I had the opportunity to delve deeper into the history — the development — of American beer. In 2003, I had written a article for the Chicago Tribune’s ‘Good Eating’ section that touched on the ever-changing character of our beer, but there is only so much to say in a 1000-word article. The book gave me a chance to take a second look at our favorite drink.
But why did it change? Best answer? Read the book, but take a look too at this press release for a short over view.
