Subject: History of breweries
Date: 1992-03-02 05:27:00 GMT

Like most of you, I enthusiastically read anything about beer that I can
get my hands on. These days, I've developed a hankering for some history.
Can anyone recommend a good resource regarding the history of brewing
and/or beer, particularly in the US? All the homebrewing books have a
brief section on this- I'd like some detail.
On another note-

A friend of mine is interested in growing hops here in Utah. Where would
be the best place to get hold of some small plants (rhizomes? rootlets?)?
I've read here about a place called FresHops (or something like that)
located somewhere in the Pacific Northwest. Is that the best place?
Closest to Utah?

Thanks for the help,

Chuck Coronella

P.S. I'm still thinking about doing a lemon beer; no conclusions yet...
