Beer: it's everywhere. In pubs, restaurants, bars, and homes around the world beer is a mainstay, almost universal in its reach. Beer: A Global History explores and celebrates the heritage of one of the world's greatest and most diverse drinks, from its earliest origins to contemporary consumption. Both informative and highly entertaining, Beer explores a legion of brews from Mexico to Milwaukee, and from Beijing to Bruges. The book covers the evolution of beer brewing and the technology behind it, as well as the growth of beer-drinking culture and the matching of beer and food.
