Red, White, and Brew is the ultimate beer run across the United States. From fifth-generation family-run brewing companies to first-wave microbreweries, this book is a travelogue, guide, and genealogical study of beer families and home brewers from Portland, Maine to Portland, Oregon. It is filled with eclectic characters and shrewd businesspeople who produce liquid philanthropy, one keg at a time.
Beer's been good to Brian Yaeger, author of Red, White, and Brew: An American Beer Odyssey. It nourished him at U.C. Santa Barbara (double bachelor degrees in religious studies and Russian), became his thesis at USC (Master of Professional Writing), and fueled his road trip around the country interviewing the people who make our brews.
Haight Street’s own Magnolia Pub and Brewery will provide beer samples.
