Written by one of the world's leading authorities and hailed by American Brewer as "brilliant" and "by a wide margin the best reference now available," Beer offers an amusing and informative account of the art and science of brewing, examining the history of brewing and how the brewing process has evolved through the ages. The third edition features more information concerning the history of beer especially in the United States; British, Japanese, and Egyptian beer; beer in the context of health and nutrition; and the various styles of beer. Author Charles Bamforth has also added detailed sidebars on prohibition, Sierra Nevada, life as a maltster, hopgrowing in the Northwestern U.S., and how cans and bottle are made. Finally, the book includes new sections on beer in relation to food, contrasting attitudes towards beer in Europe and America, how beer is marketed, distributed, and retailed in the US, and modern ways of dealing with yeast.

Review:


"This excellent book...is a good read for anyone interested in the science of beer or its consumption."--Chemistry World


"Bamforth is an engaging writer and truly knows his brewing. If you're a home brewer, a commercial brewer or a beer fan who wants a comprehensive book on brewing, look no further."--The Oregonian


Reviews of the 2nd Edition:


"Brilliant! There has been an unfilled market for this type of book. . . . Happily, this book . . .is by a wide margin the best reference now available . . . The book is very well written. It has a light, almost breezy style that is mixed with a subtle yet attractively understated British wit. It is above all a great read that is hard to put down. The strongest part of this book is the discussion of the brewing process. . . . In summary, Beer: Tap into the Art and Science of Brewing is a brilliant achievement that nontechnical people will find accessible and quite valuable. It is also highly recommended for technical people because it does show how the art and science of brewing can be communicated effectively to a wider audience." -- American Brewer


"The authoritative, clear and easily understood description of a complex, technical, and sometimes mysterious subject is the book's greatest value."--Choice
