From the Back Cover:

Fermentation and plant use--as medicine, as psychotropics, as teachers, as companions on life's path--are an inescapable part of our exploration of what it means to be human. Thus, this book conflicts with a number of popular beliefs about alcohol, plants, and the nature of material reality. It is, therefore, not politically correct.

. . . The ancient beers, created . . . between 10,000 and 30,000 years ago, were quite different from what we know as beer today. Many were sacred beers, and hundreds contained medicinal herbs.--From the book

The author's beautiful and provocative exploration of the sacredness and folklore of ancient fermentation is revealed through 200 plants and hive products. Includes 120 recipes for ancient and indigenous beers and meads from 31 countries and six continents--and the most complete evaluation of honey ever published.

Book Description Brewers Publications, 1998. PAPERBACK. Book Condition: New. 0937381667 New. No dust jacket as issued. Brand New! Support Radical Independent Pacific Northwest Booksellers! Trade paperback (US). Glued binding. 450 p. Contains: Illustrations. Audience: General/trade. Share the secrets of the Ancients. Their healing beers and ales made from sacred and medicinal trees and plants are revealed in 120 actual recipes from primary sources nearly 2, 000 years old. This is the first comprehensive book ever written on the sacredness of ancient fermentation. medicinal, spiritual, sacred, and ceremonial properties of nearly 200 plants when used as fermented beverages are explored in depth. Stephen Buhner captures the magic and mystery of creation myths as they relate to beer and fermentation. He explains how fermentation and plant use as medicine and psychotropics have always been companions on life's path, and are part of the exploration of what it means to be human. Often radical and controversial, Buhner has clearly and beautifully explored the mysterious universal beliefs between ancient and indigenous cultures as to the spirituality and healing power plants and fermentation. In the spirit of Carlos Castenada, he forges a quest in pursuit of the experiential. Highlights of comprehensive information never presented in one volume include: mead, honey and hive products; heather and coriander ales; psychotropic beers such as yarrow beer; and beers and ales from sacred and medicinal trees and plants.
