The Lager Queen of Minnesota
“The Lager Queen of Minnesota by J. Ryan Stradal is a wonderful story about beer, family , resiliency and friendship—what else do you want? Sisters grow up together on a small farm in Minnesota but never quite see eye to eye. When an inequitable inheritance estranges the sisters, we learn how each makes her way through young adulthood, marriage and careers until one day, their paths cross in an unexpected development. Stradal’s fabulous characters will have you listening late into the night!”Phyllis, Wellesley Books
“A Minnesota family grounded in farming, beer, and award-winning pies is split for decades when one of two sisters inherits the farm. Helen and Edith — whose stories author J. Ryan Stradal effectively weaves together — stop speaking, while one’s fortunes soar and the other’s plummet. When a woman of the next generation has a chance at success, she may also reunite the Calder family. Stradal brings the heartland to the page with warmth, humor, and plenty of hops-inspired lore.”Cheryl McKeon, Book Passage
“Stradal brings the heart here with characters you will really enjoy. They face the future with difficulty, courage and bravery. The story of the three determined women using what they know, baking pies and making beer, help them succeed. P.S. You don’t have to like pies or beer to savor this book.”Mollie, HearthFire Books and Treats
