The Lager Queen of Minnesota by J. Ryan Stradal book cover featuring a bottle cap with the title printed on it. The Lager Queen of Minnesota by J. Ryan Stradal

A novel of family, Midwestern values, hard work, fate and the secrets of making a world-class beer.

Two sisters, one farm. A family is split when their father leaves their shared inheritance entirely to Helen, his younger daughter. Her older sister, Edith, struggles to make what most people would call a living. Helen builds one of the most successful light breweries in the country, and makes their company motto ubiquitous: “Drink lots. It’s Blotz.” Where Edith has a heart as big as Minnesota, Helen’s is as rigid as a steel keg. And Edith’s granddaughter, Diana, grows up knowing that the real world requires a tougher constitution than her grandmother possesses.

In this deeply affecting family saga, we meet a cast of lovable and funny characters eager to make their mark in a world that’s often stacked against them. Resolution can take generations, but when it finally comes, we’re surprised, moved, and delighted.

Copies of the books are available at the library. All are welcome to join us!
