Inhaltsangabe: Brewing in New Mexico began in the 1850s when small breweries serviced short-lived boomtowns teeming with early settlers thirsty for brew. By the time Prohibition came in 1918, New Mexico breweries were completely tapped out. It wasn't until 1988, when the Santa Fe Brewing Company began slaking local thirsts, that beer was again brewed in New Mexico. By the late 1990s, New Mexico was experiencing a resurgence in local brewing. Today, the state boasts a craft brewing renaissance. New Mexican breweries receive national attention, including eight medals at the 2013 Great American Beer Festival in Denver. Join author Jon C. Stott as he recounts New Mexico's brewing history, collects hops heritage and samples local brewpubs from across the state.
Über den Autor: Jon C. Stott, Professor Emeritus of English, University of Alberta (Canada), spent nearly five decades of academic life writing textbooks and so-called scholarly studies. Since his retirement, he has been writing books about nonacademic things than interest him. These include four books on minor-league professional sports ( Leagues of Their Own, McFarland, 2001; Minor Leagues, Major Boom, McFarland, 2004; The Ice Men of Dixie, Heritage House, 2006; and Ice Warriors: The Pacific Coast/Western Hockey League, 1948-1974, Heritage House, 2008). He has been studying beer in a very nonacademic, nonscientific way for more than half a century and is the author of Beer Quest West: The Craft Brewers of Alberta and British Columbia (Touchwood Editions, 2011). His blog www .beerquestwest. com includes essays about breweries and brewers, accounts of his beer travels and tasting notes. It will include periodic updates for New Mexico Beer. After having spent many winters in Albuquerque, avoiding the cold Canadian weather, he moved there permanently in 2013.
