Historically speaking, Sacramento benefited from a gold rush, an agricultural boom and, more recently, a brewing renaissance. The region's craft beer scene exploded from six to more than sixty breweries in about a decade, and the roots of that culture stretch back more than a century. Before Prohibition, thousands of acres of local hops supplied brewers across the country. Local farms are once again taking advantage of the temperate climate.

In 1958, the University of California–Davis started America's foremost brewing science program, producing some of California's top brewers. Rubicon's 1989 award-winning IPA was just the beginning for the current, innovative resurgence. Author Justin Chechourka explores the complexities and nuance of this fermenting heritage. Foreword by Daniel Moffatt, Fountainhead Brewing Company.

About the author:

Justin Chechourka is the co-ringleader (along with his incredible superhero of a wife) of his very own circus that includes a baseball-obsessed seven-year-old and two wild and crazy twin four-year-olds. When he’s not coaching or attending school functions, he is likely chauffeuring a child to their next birthday party. All of this helps to explain why he has taken such an interest in craft beer. Not only does this enjoyable adult beverage showcase some of the best of what Sacramento has to offer, but the people behind these brews also have great stories to tell.
