"Who better to chronicle the history of the craft beer revolution than a former reporter and founder of one of the country's seminal craft breweries?  Steve was there and lived it, and he tells the fascinating story of how craft beer turned an industry like only an insider could. The Craft Beer Revolution reads like a thriller—I couldn't put it down.” —Harry Schuhmacher, Publisher, Beer Business Daily

About The Craft Beer Revolution: Over the past 40 years craft-brewed beer has exploded in growth. In 1980, a handful of “microbrewery” pioneers launched a revolution that would challenge the dominance of the national brands, Budweiser, Coors, and Miller, and change the way Americans think about, and drink, beer. Today, there are more than 2,700 craft breweries in the United  States and another  1,500 are in the works. Their influence is spreading to Europe’s great brewing nations, and to countries all over the globe. In The Craft Beer Revolution, Steve Hindy, co-founder of Brooklyn Brewery, tells the inside story of how a band of homebrewers and microbrewers came together to become one of America’s  great entrepreneurial  triumphs. Hindy also explores how Budweiser, Miller, and Coors, all now owned by international conglomerates, are creating their own craft-style beers, the same way major food companies have acquired or created smaller organic labels to court credibility with a new generation of discerning eaters and drinkers. This is a timely and fascinating look at what America’s new generation of entrepreneurs can learn from the intrepid pioneering brewers who are transforming the way Americans enjoy this drink.

Stephen Hindy is the author of Beer School and co-founder, chairman and president of Brooklyn Brewery, one of America’s top 20 breweries. A former journalist, he became interested in homebrewing while serving as a Beirutbased Middle East Correspondent for the Associated Press. He and Brooklyn Brewery have been featured in The New York Times, the New York Post, Crain’s New York Business, New York magazine, CNN, The Huffington Post, and countless beer blogs and specialty publications. Hindy is a member of the Board of Directors of the Beer Institute and the Brewers Association. He lives in Brooklyn, NY.
