Matt McNeil – Doug Hoverson Interview

Matt speaks with Doug Hoverson, author of The Drink That Made Wisconsin Famous: Beer and Brewing in the Badger State.

Few places on Earth are as identified with beer as Wisconsin, with good reason. Since its first commercial brewery was established in 1835, the state has seen more than 800 open and more than 650 close—sometimes after mere months, sometimes after thriving for as long as a century and a half. The Drink That Made Wisconsin Famous explores this rich history, from the first territorial pioneers to the most recent craft brewers, and from barley to barstool.
