Robin Shepard, author of the award-winning book Wisconsin's Best Breweries and Brewpubs, now showcases The Best Breweries and Brewpubs of Illinois. This guidebook introduces some three dozen breweries and brewpubs in Illinois and sixteen within half an hour's drive across the state line in Iowa, Missouri, Indiana, and Wisconsin. From the small microbrewery Two Brothers in Warrenville and big brewpubs like Goose Island in Chicago to the world-famous brewing giant Anheuser-Busch in St. Louis, Shepard provides descriptions and ratings of more than four hundred beers. Shepard also introduces novices to the brewing process and a wide variety of beer styles. And, in this information packed guidebook, you'll find a list of helpful books and Web sites, as well as where to find Illinois beer-tastings and festivals.
