In 1996, a handful of men inspired a crusade--the Italian craft beer movement. Italy: Beer Country presents the movement's humble roots and the passionate brewers whose persistent, dogged determination allowed them to overcome cultural bias, low expectations, and Italy's infuriating taxes, to forge what has become Europe's most vibrant beer scene. Italy: Beer Country is the first written history of this evolving, creative craft beer movement.
