Summary
""Suds Series" takes readers back forty years, treating them to a story that is part baseball history, part urban history, and part U.S. cultural history. The narrative weaves together the development of the heavily German-influenced Midwest cities of St. Louis and Milwaukee through their engagement with beer and baseball. Those readers who lived through the 1980s will enjoy the many cultural references and recollections from the summer of '82, including the Pac-Man craze, SNL and Late Night, a chart-topping album by Rush, and the "Light Beer Wars" waged by Anheuser-Bush and Miller Brewing through a series of TV commercials, which featured popular sports figures"-- Provided by publisher.
