In the tradition of Rich Cohen’s Sweet and Low and Sean Wilsey’s Oh the Glory of it All, a memoir of a city, an industry, and a dynasty in decline, and the story of a young artist’s struggle to find her way out of the ruins. Frances Stroh’s earliest memories are ones of great privilege: shopping trips to London and New York, lunches served by black-tied waiters at the Regency Hotel, and a house filled with precious antiques, which she was forbidden to touch. Established in Detroit in 1850, by 1984 the Stroh Brewing Company had become the largest private beer fortune in America and a brand emblematic of the American dream itself; while Stroh was coming of age, the Stroh family fortune was estimated to be worth $700 million. But behind the beautiful façade lay a crumbling foundation. Detroit’s economy collapsed with the retreat of the automotive industry to the suburbs and abroad and likewise the Stroh family found their wealth and legacy disappearing. As their fortune dissolved in little over a decade, the family was torn apart internally by divorce and one family member's drug bust; disagreements over the management of the business; and disputes over the remaining money they possessed. Even as they turned against one another, looking for a scapegoat on whom to blame the unraveling of their family, they could not anticipate that even far greater tragedy lay in store. Featuring beautiful evocative photos throughout, Stroh’s memoir is elegantly spare in structure and mercilessly clear-eyed in its self-appraisal—at once a universally relatable family drama and a great American story.

German, Czech, and Irish immigrants poured into America in the mid-1800s. They brought their language and traditions with them…and their love of brewing and drinking beer. In 1881, Iowa City was a bustling town full of immigrants. The population was exploding, and that meant two things: Fortunes were being made overnight and trouble was afoot. Three large breweries had taken root, sprouting strong and proud in the “Northside” neighborhood. In one generation the brewers became wealthy and powerful men. They also came to be known as “The Beer Mafia.” The more powerful the brewers grew, the more passionate the ladies of the Women’s Christian Temperance Union became about abolishing alcohol altogether. They took their fight to the saloon, the street, and the Statehouse, preaching prohibition. Conrad Graf, J.J. Englert and John Dostal thought of themselves as honest businessmen capitalizing on America’s explosive growth by simply providing a product people wanted. Vernice Armstrong thought they were selling sin and destroying everything that made America great, one beer at a time. She made it her mission in life to bring them down, but they weren’t about to go down without a fight. Blending real-life historical figures with compelling fictional characters, Beer Money is the story of how the brewers and “Teetotalers” slammed head-on into each other, turning the prairie red with blood. This is a tale of how the seemingly innocuous love of brewing and drinking beer became the flashpoint, sparking events that would shape America for a generation.
There are a Bagillion books about how to make money online (No kidding. That's a real number). Unfortunately most of them make some pretty incredible claims that are hard to back up, or at the very least duplicate. "Earn 15k in one month blogging, drop shipping, and marketing!" Let's face it, if you could do that you already would be.The internet is an amazing place, but for every legitimate website there are ten sites that are complete scams. Sometimes it can be difficult to tell the difference. This book is written for people who need some extra income, not get rich quick. Maybe you need some extra money for the holidays, want to earn some gift cards to help fund your online shopping addiction, or you spend too much time on the internet and might as well make some money while you are at it. This book will be broken up into four sections, starting with the highest earning. Even though some of these entries do have the potential to be a cash cow or a full time job, my goal is to give you realistic opportunities for realistic earnings. The further we go the easier (although less lucrative) the sites will become, including apps for your phone.Also included is a collection of free educational resources. While they don't pay you money, it is easily the most valuable section in this book.

Until the eighteenth century or even later, beer was the staple drink of most men and women at all levels of society. Tea and coffee were expensive luxuries while water might well carry disease. To supply the needs of both owners and servants, every country house with an accessible source of water had a brewhouse, usually close at hand. Although many of the brewhouses still stand, in some cases with the original brewing vessels (as at Lacock and Charlecote), their habitual conversion to other uses has allowed them to be ignored. Yet they are distinctive buildings - as much part of a country house as an ice-house or stables - which need both to be recognised and preserved. The scale of brewing in country houses, which went on to a surprisingly late date in the nineteenth century (with odd survivals, such as Hickleton in Yorkshire, into the twentieth), was often considerable, if small besides that of commercial brewing. Copious records for both brewing and consumption exist. Pamela Sambrook describes the brewing equipment, such as coppers, mash tuns underbacks and coolers; the types of beers brewed, from strong ale to small beer and how they were kept; and the brewers themselves, their skills and attitudes. English Country House Brewing, 1500-1900 shows the role beer played in the life of the country house, with beer allowances and beer money an integral part of servants' rewards. Generous allowances were made for arduous tasks, such as harvesting. For celebrations, such as the heir's coming of age, extra-strong ale was provided. This book, which is heavily illustrated, is an important and original contribution to architectural, brewing and social history.
Private investigator Burr Ashland loves two things. His job. And beer. But when his best friend, a history professor, is killed, Burr is plunged into a cold case involving sex, greed and murder. It is a struggle not just between present and past, but between good and evil.
It's Burnley Not Barcelona is the diary of season 2002/2003 at Burnley Football Club, possibly the most financially difficult season in Burnley's long history since that of The Orient Game in 1987. The travels, hopes and joys of a long-suffering supporter, as well as the despair, the drenchings and hypothermia are set out against the financial problems, reduced budgets and insecurity suffered by all Nationwide clubs following the collapse of ITV Digital. August 2002 was disastrous at Burnley FC, leaving them in bottom place after four defeats and with scores of disgruntled supporters. From then on the book chronicles Burnley's recovery and progress with wit, humour, pointed observation and a bit of education thrown in for free. 2002/2003 was a marvellously eventful season, one of the most entertaining for years, with two wonderful Cup runs and some bizarre games. It's Burnley Not Barcelona records the aspirations of supporters blessed, some might say cursed, with dreams of grandeur. Unfortunately dreams come unstuck too often at Turf Moor with results such as Grimsby 6 Burnley 5 on Halloween Night, Burnley 4 Watford 7 and Burnley 2 Sheffield Wednesday 7.
