A History of Beer and Brewing provides a comprehensive account of the history of beer. Research carried out during the last quarter of the 20th century has permitted us to re-think the way in which some ancient civilizations went about their beer production. There have also been some highly innovative technical developments, many of which have led to the sophistication and efficiency of 21st century brewing methodology. A History of Beer and Brewing covers a time-span of around eight thousand years and in doing so: * Stimulates the reader to consider how, and why, the first fermented beverages might have originated * Establishes some of the parameters that encompass the diverse range of alcoholic beverages assigned the generic name 'beer' * Considers the possible means of dissemination of early brewing technologies from their Near Eastern origins The book is aimed at a wide readership particularly beer enthusiasts. However the use of original quotations and references associated with them should enable the serious scholar to delve into this subject in even greater depth.

Review:

I fully recommend this book to any-one interested in brewing. (Chemistry & Industry, 18 October 2004 (Professor Graham Stewart))

Likely the best book on beer I have ever read....trustworthy completeness. This is the best history I have encountered to date. (Beer Blog, 12th December 2006 (Alan (Ontario)))

"... fascinating ... " (New Scientist, 10 April 2004, p 52)

A welcome addition to the beer enthusiast's library and a point of contact for a wider readership. (Ambix 16 September 2005 (Ray Anderson))

"... This book will fill a sizable gap on the book shelves of all those interested in the history of brewing prior to the MMC report and will provide the reader with countless gems of information with which to amaze beer drinkers and brewers. " (What's Brewing, May 2004)

If you only have room for one book on brewing, historical or otherwise, on your shelves then buy this one. (Microbiology Today, Vol.31, August 2004 (Ray Anderson))
