New book

A new book is coming out this fall that ought to make a lot of people happy (or at least the ones who are unhappy about the book I wrote): Amy Mittelman's Brewing Battles: The United States Beer Industry from the Colonial Period to the 21st Century. As part of my research for my beer book, I read Mittelman's dissertation, a fine piece of work about the relationship between the liquor industry and the federal government in the late nineteenth century. I'm guessing this new book will hold up to her earlier standard.
