The Buffalo, Pumpkin, and Hops: A History of Bill Owens and Craft Beer
What do brewpubs, pumpkin ales, and punch-you-in-the-face hoppy DIPAs have in common? They were all introduced and popularized by Bill Owens, a craft beer pioneer. The Buffalo, Pumpkin, and Hops: A History of Bill Owens and Craft Beer explores Owens' pioneering efforts as an innovative brewer, writer, publisher, entrepreneur, and advocate for fresh, flavorful beer. Readers will learn how Owens influenced generations of craft brewers and beer writers through founding Buffalo Bill's Brewery in 1983; the third post-Prohibition brewpub in the US, publishing two industry magazines, and brewing the first commercial pumpkin ale and the "bitterest beer in America," among other hop-soaked endeavors.
