Part of the Brewing Beer in the Buckeye State Series, this first of five volumes giving a pictorial history of Cleveland breweries covers the Vega Avenue Brewery, where brewing took place for more than a century, from 1858 to 1959. Most of that time, it was operated by the Leisy family, a name that is still fondly remembered more than fifty years later. In addition, the book covers the history of the related Leisy brewery in Peoria, Illinois. Spiral-bound, it has 64 pages and more than 350 images, mostly in color, of people, buildings, labels, signs, and you name it.
