State of Craft Beer

This is a free talk about Matthew Janzen’s new book State of Craft Beer. It is a journey through Wisconsin that captures the people and places behind the state’s extensive craft beer industry. The photos and stories explore every aspect of the brewing process, documenting the fields and factories that supply breweries with everything from hops and barley to brewing equipment and tap handles.

From Lori Friedrich’s OnMilwaukee column last year: “Janzen decided to pursue two of his passions: beer and photography. He quit his job and took a year to travel across the state, touring breweries, chatting with brewers and visiting places that were integral to the beer brewing process. In the end, he toured 125 facilities including 95 breweries, farms, purveyors and companies like Quality Tank Solutions, Peterson Precision Custom Stainless and AJS Inc., a tap handle manufacturing plant. He documented his journey with photographs.”

Someone asked if the project was going to be a book. The idea was born. And now “State of Craft Beer” is available.
