    This review is from: Philadelphia Beer: A Heady History of Brewing in the Cradle of Liberty (PA) (The History Press) (Paperback)

    This is a very nice historic review of Philadelphia Brewery history for this format. A lot of info included about the brewers and production figures although you can tell there is much more behind the stories of each of these breweries. A few historical maps of the neighborhoods described in each era would have made it easier to visualize the growth and movement of the Philly beer buisiness for those who might not be familiar with the city. A nice easy read and good reference source for Beer History buffs and collectors.

    It’s a relatively thorough history about the breweries and beer making in and around the Philadelphia area.
    Nothing compelling here, just historic facts about breweries changing hands over time and the development of the craft in the region. It pretty much reads like history text. But if that’s your thing and you are interested in beer, give it a shot.
