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.

A tasty tale of:

  • brewmasters,

  • risk-takers

  • gangsters

  • roadhouses

The book also features a section on the LOST BARS OF WINDSOR.
