Above is the cover of the Second Edition of Beer, Brats, & Baseball: German-Americans in St. Louis. My publisher tells me it’s coming out by the end of this month. Those who bought the 1st Edition and those who didn’t will definitely want to get this one. It contains most of the material from the Second Edition, along with a number of new items. Here is the tale of the German immigrant restaurant owner who went home before World War II because people suspected him of being a Nazi sympathizer. Here as well is the story of the local craft brewer that bought a German brewery so St. Louisans could drink the most authentic European beer available.We’ve also updated items from the First Edition where necessary. Plan to add it to your library.
