  • Fredrick J. Miller came to Milwaukee, Wisconsin, from Germany 150 years ago and started a small brewery that would evolve into one of the world’s largest. In The Miller Beer Barons, author Tim John tells the complete story of the family that built a beer empire from the entrepreneurial days of brewers like Miller, Pabst and Best, through the struggles of Prohibition to the corporate modern era. A member of the Miller family, John introduces readers to quirky and controversial family members like Emil Miller, who smashed beer bottles of competitors with his cane when he discovered them at taverns, or John’s own father, Harry, who served a brief, but stormy, tenure as company president. Tim John spent several years researching the book, which is likely the most complete history of Miller Brewing ever done. "The Miller Beer Barons" arrives just in time to commemorate Miller’s 150th anniversry in 2005.
