Beer & Food: An American History (Hardcover)

Book Description

The timeless combination of America's favorite frothy beverage, with its solid gastronomic counterparts, is the focus of this culinary chronicle. Documenting the parallel development of the brewing industry with that of American cookery, this exhaustive history traces ale's influence on recipes in America's early history, the introduction of lager beer in the 19th century, the use of malt extract during Prohibition, and the recent advent of craft beer. The more than 90 beer-related recipes encourage chefs to experience the bliss of wild salmon grilled on cedar planks or brownies washed down with a creamy stout.

while in Vietnam 69'to 70' our M60 Machine gunner from Kentucky always talked about the best beer in the world "Hootapole" (not real sure on the spelling) when he got back to the world he sent me a six pack to nam... We recently had a reunion and my Kentucky buddy was there. First thing we talked about was the Hootapole Beer. He said they went out of business years ago... Anyone know anything about this Beer, it's history, where it went??? Love to here about it Thank you Ron
