Rated 5 out of 5 by from A good read for the beer enthusiast If you're a homebrewer or just plain interested in the history of German beer, this is a great book. The author traces the origins of German beer from the barbarian hordes up until modern times. In this book you’ll find out how monasteries, lords, guilds, politics, economics and the importance of a good tasting brew influenced local beer styles and some thoughts about what beer might have tasted like a few hundred years ago! There are all kinds of cool little facts in this book and you’ll learn some fun history.
