Straub Brewing history is brought to life! By Rich Wagner - 09/30/2005 Pennslyvania Brewery Historians
I've seen many books from this publisher recently. They specialize in local history and I've purchased two of their books that cover my home town. I've used others to get information on Philadelphia neighborhoods that were home to breweries and never cease to be amazed at how they bring the past to life with great archival photographs. Straub Brewery is no exception. Starting with the cover which features a sepia-toned image of wooden cases of empties next to the bottle washer, the book contains interior and exterior views of the brewery, labels, Straub family members and even recipes with Straub Beer!
Straub beer has become more than just a "cult classic" and beer aficionados, breweriana collectors and brewery historians will relish this feast of imagery that chronicles the history of this Pennsylvania regional brewery, the culture which surrounds it, and home to the "eternal tap."
This book from Arcadia Publishing's "Images of America" series entitled Straub Brewery by John E. Schlimm II is now available at area bookstores, independent retailers, on-line bookstores or through Arcadia Publishing (www.arcadiapublishing.com or 888-313-2665). Cover price, $19.99.
