Comprehensive and detailed, this is the first ever study of ancient beer and its distilling, consumption and characteristics

Examining evidence from Greek and Latin authors from 700 BC to AD 900, the book demonstrates the important technological as well as ideological contributions the Europeans made to beer throughout the ages.

The study is supported by textual and archaeological evidence and gives a fresh and fascinating insight into an aspect of ancient life that has fed through to modern society and which stands today as one of the world’s most popular beverages.

Students of ancient history, classical studies and the history of food and drink will find this an useful and enjoyable read.
