As a comprehensive guide, this book is a valuable summary of the many beer ventures in NorCal. I'm sure over the years, Jay will add and refine the contents. What I'd like to see in the 2nd edition are black & white pictures of brewers and/or facilities for businesses, in addition to the company's logos.
