In 1975, there was one craft brewery in the United States; today, there are more than 2,300. Powered by millions of savvy, devoted consumers — and raking in hundreds of millions annually for producers and retailers — the American craft beer movement has changed the brewing industry and the international reputation of American beer. It has upended the Big Beer giants that once seemed untouchable and forever altered the culinary habits of not only millions of Americans but also millions worldwide.
Based on thorough research as well as interviews with all of the most influential names in craft brewing since the 1960s, The Audacity of Hops brims with charming, remarkable tales, which together weave a very American business story, one of formidable odds and refreshing success.
