9780755311651: Beer: The Story of the Pint : The History Of Britain's Most Popular Drink

Beer: The Story Of The Pint is the chronicle of Britain's favourite drink, a river that stretches back to the sacred brews of the first Neolithic farmers and forward another six millennia to today's megabreweries. It tells the story of our national obsession with brewing and answers such questions as: when did bitter and mild originate? What is the true story of porter and stout? What herbs did medieval brewers use before hops? How did lager get to be the most popular beer in Britain, rising from 2 per cent of sales to nearly 50 per cent in just 40 years? What was a Victorian brewery like? And what are the stories behind the great breweries? The British Isles have always had a beer culture, with beer drunk everywhere from ploughman's hut to palace. At last, this impeccably researched and highly original book does justice to its fascinating story. This is the last word on beer and its history - no one interested in the subject will need any other book.
