The Rise And Fall
I’m giving away the New York Times Bestseller, William Knoedelseder’s “Bitter Brew: The Rise and Fall of Anheuser-Busch and America’s Kings of Beer” tomorrow (Saturday) morning at 7:30 on Puffman SPORTS Trivia. World famous author, John Sayles, shouts, “Bitter Brew deftly chronicles the contentious succession of kings in a uniquely American dynasty. You’ll never crack open a six pack again without thinking of this book.” “Bitter Brew” is an engrossing, vivid narrative that tells of the Busch family’s rise from immigrant status to bona fide American royalty, & details the critical actions & decisions that eventually led to the company’s sale. It’s a cautionary tale of prosperity, hubris, & loss. “Hubris”? I don’t think that I’ve ever drunk that one before! Back in Pennsylvania, I used to drink Olde Frothingslosh Pale Stale Ale where the foam was on the bottom! In chronicling this breathtaking rise & fall, author William Knoedelseder, also weaves a fascinating broader story of American progress & decline over the last 150 years. Check out this riveting read from HarperBusiness, An Imprint of HarperCollinsPublishers at: www.harpercollines.com & then listen to WIN tomorrow morning at 7:30 on Puffman SPORTS Trivia. I’ve come up with another great horse jockey trivia question for tomorrow morning’s trivia. Stay tuned!
