Product Synopsis

Far-ranging in scope and written with wit and charm, this guide provides a global perspective on one of the world's most ancient and popular beverages, including how it is made, how to serve and taste it, where to find the best, and what to serve with it. Spanning from biblical days to today, it examines beer's historic connections to the Crusades, the Hundred Years War, and modern-day soccer riots. It also candidly discusses the effects of alcohol on the body and the brain and details the social problems that result from abuse. Straightforward and opinionated, this course will turn the novice into an expert or increase the knowledge of anyone who wants to know more about fermented libations.
