This attractive little book describes and illustrates the various breweriana from American breweries in chronological chapters. Starting with the "neighbourhood brewery", then industrialization of the big breweries, followed by Prohibition years, return of beer brewing and finally in the 1970's to 2000's. The different types of beer collectibles over these time spans reflect social & political pressures, fashions, technology changes showing examples such as trade cards, embossed bottles, bottle labels, "tin" signs, trays, beer mats, beer cans, showcards etc. A pity there isn't a similar book for British breweriana!
NB: - This book is also listed in the 'Beer Books - USA' section.
