Here is a copy of Wayne Kroll's early compendium of Wisconsin breweries, including brewery photos, tracings of etched beer bottles, and historical write-ups on individual breweries. Kroll was one of Wisconsin's early beer historians, and this opus is a testament to his research and efforts to preserve and share the history of the state's brewing industry -- one of the most colorful in America. This always-in-demand book has become difficult to find as collectors and beer historians recognize the value of the material it holds.
