BREWED IN WINDSOR
a tasty history
How did a small Canadian city become home to six major breweries?
“Brewed in Windsor” is the story of the rise and fall of Windsor, Ontario’s original six breweries. It is an account of brewmasters, businessmen, gangsters and roadhouses, and the outsized impact of Prohibition on the local brewing industry.
Whether or not you’re a beer aficionado, you’ll enjoy drinking up this little known, but thoroughly fascinating chapter in Windsor’s history.
Like snippets from a long forgotten dream, the 150 black and white photos in “Windsor Then” chronicle the evolution of a sleepy Canadian town at the western edge of the British Empire, as it transforms into a manufacturing powerhouse.
Culled from the archives of Walkerville Publishing Inc., these intriguing images, snapped between 1860 to 1960, reveal in fascinating detail how Windsor’s denizens once lived, travelled, worked, played, fought and loved.
Windsor Then is a unique portrait of this community’s once boundless optimism, its innovators, its schemers, and its simple, hard-working folk living in an era of remarkable change and great expectations — in stark contrast to the Windsor of today.
