San Francisco Brewing: A History of Brewing by the Bay, tells the story of the early days of San Francisco craft brewing in the 1980s from the perspective of someone who was there. Bill Yenne is a long time resident of the city and was writing about beer when San Francisco had only two brewpubs. The book also details the complete history of brewing in San Francisco from before the 1849 Gold Rush, and discusses all of the breweries that operated in San Francisco. A rich collection of images also fill the book, documenting beer in the city from 1848 to the present day.
