Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Over the past 40 years craft-brewed beer has exploded in growth. In 1980, a handful of “microbrewery” pioneers launched a revolution that would challenge the dominance of the national brands, Budweiser, Coors, and Miller, and change the way Americans think about, and drink, beer. Today, there are more than 2,700 craft breweries in the United States and another 1,500 are in the works. Their influence is spreading to Europe's great brewing nations, and to countries all over the globe.

In The Craft Beer Revolution, Steve Hindy, co-founder of Brooklyn Brewery, tells the inside story of how a band of homebrewers and microbrewers came together to become one of Americas great entrepreneurial triumphs. Beginning with Fritz Maytag, scion of the washing machine company, and Jack McAuliffe, a US Navy submariner who developed a passion for real beer while serving in Scotland, Hindy tells the story of hundreds of creative businesses like Deschutes Brewery, New Belgium, Dogfish Head, and Harpoon. He shows how their individual and collective efforts have combined to grab 10 percent of the dollar share of the US beer market.

Hindy also explores how Budweiser, Miller, and Coors, all now owned by international conglomerates, are creating their own craft-style beers, the same way major food companies have acquired or created smaller organic labels to court credibility with a new generation of discerning eaters and drinkers. This is a timely and fascinating look at what Americas new generation of entrepreneurs can learn from the intrepid pioneering brewers who are transforming the way Americans enjoy this wonderful, inexpensive, storied beverage: beer.

Review:

"This is a wonderful story of the rebirth of the American brewing industry written by one of the entrepreneurs who helped make it happen. I once mused that one day there would be a brewery in every city in America. It is happening much more quickly than I ever imagined." Fritz Maytag, former owner of Anchor Brewing Company

Review:

The Craft Beer Revolution is a must-read for any beer lover or liquid locavore who cares to know how and why so many remarkable choices exist for those who want their beer to taste like where it was brewed. Steve Hindy has been at the center of the revolution from the beginning, and his authoritative and entertaining report shares the back-, mid-, and front-stories of the pioneers who have given us the gift of craft beer.” Danny Meyer, Restaurateur and Author, Setting the Table: The Transforming Power of Hospitality in Business

Review:

“What an engaging wander through a fascinating contemporary history! Steve Hindy artfully fills in the blanks on some of the greatest entrepreneurial stories of America's craft breweries and the iconoclastic cast of characters involved in this movement, while also rewarding us with new, never-before-told tales. Altogether a marvelous read." Kim Jordan, Cofounder and CEO, New Belgium Brewing Co
