The history of beer is the history of civilization. Changes in beer consumption and brewing did not only follow from scientific and economic changes but also played a major role in social, political, economic and scientific innovations and change. This book tells that story – from an economic, political, and historical perspective. The sample outlines the main themes of the book and presents a proposed outline of five parts (including 22 chapters in total), and explains why the book is unique in its approach and its focus.
