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 quit his job, grabbed
a camera, and hit the road to learn more about craft beer than he could gather from
newspapers and liquor stores alone. Two years later, he published a book about
breweries and the industries that supply them. Now, Matt’s on the road again; spreading
the word about what he discovered, and continuing his mission to drink good beer made
by people who give a damn about their communities.
State of Craft Beer is a unique journey through the beer-making process, following raw
products as they make their way from fields and factories, through breweries, and into
our glass. The pages — filled with photos, stories, and slices of everyday life — weave a
tale of passionate, hard-working people who care about the communities they live in.
