Praise for LOCALLY BREWED: "An informative yet disarmingly easy read that captures the essence of each brewery though simply told stories, beautiful photography, and dynamic artwork. But it's the non-elitist approach and her departures from the obvious that really make her book work." --American Craft Beer "It really shines a light on the wonderful brewing community here in the Midwest that often doesn't get explored quite as deeply as the coasts... It's a very beautiful book." --Strange Brews, WBEZ "Keenly surveys 20 small breweries including Two Brothers in Warrenville and Metropolitan Brewing in Chicago." --David Hoekstra, Chicago Sun-Times "Blessing, a photographer as well as a writer, wants people to get to know the brewers behind the breweries... even the completist could learn something from reading it." --Isthmus "Locally Brewed is fun and engaging, a unique look inside regional craft brewing that will easily make mouths water. Beer aficionados may well finish the book itching to rush off to an unexplored brewery or the nearest brewpub... In the end, Blessing's new book is rich, creamy, and deep in flavor, just like a good craft brew." -- Chicago Review of Books "Blessing's fun and attractively-designed book is a love letter to brands both established and emerging across the beer-soaked Midwest." --Weekly Pint "These are entertaining and inspiring stories of the individuals who have been essential in the exponential growth of this movement, as told through vivid interviews, beautiful photography, and dynamic artwork." --Midwest Booksellers Association, choosing book as a February Pick "An entertaining coffee table book and a fantastic summer travel guide" --Milwaukee Magazine "Anna Blessing's book is a paean to the upper Midwest's craft community... Locally Brewed succeeds in its goal to introduce you to the people behind the beers coming out of the Great Lakes... But above all else, it makes you want to seek out these breweries." --DC Beer "With interviews, photos, and a[n] aesthetically pleasing layout, this book is not only informational but easy and interesting to read." --The Growler Praise for Anna Blessing's previous book, LOCALLY GROWN: "Part cookbook, part storybook, it's an irresistible collection of feel-good anecdotes, vivid photographs, and recipes from both chefs and farmers." --Carly Boers, Chicago magazine "An inspirational glimpse into one vibrant area of the local food movement." --Kirkus Reviews "[Locally Grown] spotlights entrepreneurial sustainable farmers in the Midwest and the Chicago chefs who use their ingredients... Each farmer's story is accompanied by anecdotes from well-known Chicago chefs, including Paul Kahan and Stephanie Izard, who describe how relationships with these growers are central to the success of their own small businesses." --Judith Nemes, Crain's Chicago Business "We love supporting the local movement, and this book has us craving a road trip to see the process firsthand." --PureWow "A truly engaging look at [the] Midwestern farm." --Amy Azzarito, Design*Sponge
