This pictorial history illustrates the Reisch family story with 180 to 240 period pictures of people, beer bottles and labels, machinery and buildings, advertising and the many things used to promote the business such as signs, glasses, coasters, trays, and lamps. The 128-page book is about 9 x 6 inches in size. It will cost $19.99.
It is scheduled for release in the spring of 2010, although it may be done before that date.

About the Author:
Tony White is the great-great grandson of the founder of the Reisch Brewery. He grew up two blocks away from the brewery, roamed the neighborhood around it, visited the brewery, and knew the last generation to run it. Before the brewery closed, his father suggested that he take pictures of the brewery, inside and out, which he did. He has now collected related information, images and memorabilia for over 40 years. He lives in Winchester, Virginia, where his office is decorated with Reisch memorabilia.
