“State of Craft Beer” is a unique journey through Wisconsin that captures the people and places behind the state’s extensive craft beer industry. The photos and stories explore every aspect of the brewing process, documenting the fields and factories that supply breweries with everything from hops and barley to brewing equipment and tap handles.
As a copywriter at a Milwaukee-based advertising agency, Matthew Janzen wrote ads for clients of all sizes and tax codes — but his passion was beer. So he kicked that steady paycheck out the door, grabbed a camera, and hit the roads of Wisconsin to learn more about the craft beer scene than he could gather from newspapers and liquor stores alone. Two years later, he published a book — produced entirely in Wisconsin — about the hard-working brewing community, and all the industries in the state that keep it buzzing with excitement. Now Matt’s on a mission to pay off the credit cards that afforded him this refreshing opportunity. Consider buying him a beer next time you see him.
There will be time after the event to talk with the author and purchase books.
