To the delight of local beer aficionados, Kansas City has seen a recent proliferation of new breweries, building on a history that dates to the 1850s. In a discussion of his new book Kansas City Beer: A History of Brewing in the Heartland, author Pete Dulin explains how advancements in transportation and technology, European migration, and industry competition fostered early growth in the local brewing industry. And he explores how the rise of the major breweries of the post-Prohibition era – including Boulevard Brewing – led to this modern wave of craft brewers.

Dulin is also the author of KC Ale Trail and Last Bite: 100 Simple Recipes from Kansas City’s Best Chefs and Cooks. The West Bottoms-based Stockyards Brewing Co., offers a sampling of its products prior to his presentation.
