    One thought on “Red, White, and Brew: An American Beer Odyssey”

    1. Every chapter covers a particular American brewery Some are just way interesting than others Dogfishhead, Anchor, Yuengling, etc Then there are those that you just wonder why the heck Yaeger included them in the book But, I m a beer geek and love travel writing, so overall this was an enjoyable read.

    2. This was a quick and enjoyable read, showcasing the American brewing companies that have survived through the ages I also appreciated the map that let you follow along on Yaeger s travels This is an inspiring book for anyone that is serious about micro brewing.

    3. I really enjoyed this book, the stories of the breweries and all that If you re into beer OR family businesses, it s a good read.

    4. A pleasant enough road trip to a variety of American breweries, new and old, however it is woefully dated at this point, with the explosive growth the craft beer market had undergone since it was published There are also quite a few errors in terms of beer styles and brewing terminology, which a casual craft beer drinker might not notice, but a professional geek will find glaring and grating.

    5. i almost put this book down in disgust after reading only 3 pages, but finding a very obvious factual error that no beer aficionado or his editor would make i decided to give the book a chance, and well, for bathroom reading it was ok.i endured the author s amateur writing style and hackneyed road trip hijinx tales because i wanted to hear the stories behind several of our nation s brewers i found their stories to be much interesting and inspiring than hearing about how he slept in his car to s [...]

    6. This was an encouraging readm, the sort of thing that says yes, ben, you too can be a beer writer It s an outsider s take on an insider s look through the American craft regional beer industry, paying attention to high volume and distributed brews than necessarily the creative ones Essentially, each chapter is a different brewery and ends with some anecdotes associated with travel from point A to B Sometimes the Brewer s are sufficiently interesting, and rise above the re teller s limitations O [...]

    7. I just took a drive across America with this author visiting some pretty darn major breweries and some small brew pubs This is a pretty good road trip journal across the beer map of America There were some pretty interesting visits and some mundane and just there stops as well However as a coalesced whole this book did a nice job of visiting those breweries that the author could during a somewhat whirlwind and bizarre trip across and back America For beer culture aficionados this may be a bit d [...]

    8. Although this was an interesting book about U.S breweries and brewpubs large and small including our own Free State Brewery , I was disappointed in the quality of the writing Sometimes, I felt like the author was trying too hard to be clever, and at others, his style was disjointed and confusing Still, I enjoyed learning about the 14 breweries he visited and the founders, owners, brewmasters and loyal customers that make them successful.

    9. Not really reading this, but it s in my bathroom and I flip through it occasionally It s basically the story of one guy s road trip around the country visiting breweries There are a couple of interesting characters, but ultimately it s a personal travelogue and not an especially compelling one rather than a useful reference to beers It s like he doesn t want to say anything critical about the beers that his newfound brewer friends create.

    10. Enjoyable travelogue, odyssey, and series of interviews focused on brewers and their breweries No pictures darn but the brewers stories were interesting and many were very open about likes, dislikes, personal histories, and so on Especially interesting as a historical document, as it was published in 2008, and the last seven years is a lifetime in the craft brewing world.

    11. Got this for my birthday Read it very quickly It s an enjoyable tour of some of America s most notable breweries or, at least the ones with the best stories The writing is a bit ham fisted at times but the stories from the brewers are good Well suited to summer reading with a frosty mug nearby.

    12. The author road tripped around the USA, seeking out breweries and brew pubs, interviewing the owners and sampling the beers Very inspiring Our breweries and the people behind them are things to be proud of Makes me want to start my own.

    13. As a beer geek I enjoyed this, but the writing wasn t always great and it did get a bit repetitive On the other hand, now I know where to find craft beer in nearly every corner of the US An easy, enjoyable read, but nothing spectacular.

    14. This is an amusing account of the author s travels to various breweries across the country I don t know what it says about me, but I ve been to many of these breweries and had most of these beers

    15. Very good stuff My biggest complaint is that it makes me thirsty for fantastic American beer that I can t get here in Germany Bottom line get out there and drink
