(in French)...The Lorraine region of France was one of the biggest beer centres in the country in the early 20th century, with famous names such as Brasseries de la Meuse, Vezelise and Champigneulles etc. Sadly industrial decline, war and the trend to bottled beer resulted in the take-over & closure of most of them. This book, well illustrated with old beer adverts & brewery photos, outlines their precursors, their rise and fall, the raw materials used and their use of art and their drinking "estaminets".
