Part of the Brewing Beer in the Buckeye State series, this is the second of three volumes giving a pictorial history of the breweries of Columbus, Ohio. This one covers the Gambrinus/August Wagner Breweries that operated from 1906 to 1974 in Columbus and the state's earlier capital, Chillicothe. The Wagner family oversaw operation of this brewery, which was a major landmark on the south side of the city, through most of its existence. The book also covers the breweries of Licking County, primarily those of Newark, just east of Columbus. Spiral-bound and published in 2013, the book has 68 pages and nearly 400 images, mostly in color, of people, buildings, labels, signs, and you name it.
