This book is a journey in words and pictures from ancient times to the modern day, via the history and geography of one of the oldest phenomena in the history of mankind: beer! It has been said, and often repeated by Lorenzo Kuaska Dabove, one of the world's great experts, that beer does not exist - but beers do. This book brings to the reader the ancient story of a drink that is as old as mankind, presents the ingredients and methods of making beer, which for the most part have not changed in centuries, and accompanies the reader in his discovery of tens of types of beer made in the principle beermaking traditions around the world, using detailed profiles and attractive photographs. Thanks to its splendid images, the reader will be able to understand the subtle shades that distinguish the different families and the various traditions, and learn the characteristics of each one. The book reveals many trade secrets and recommends beers that are unknown to most people: salty, smoky, true to medieval recipes, or recently created by daring independent brewers. Whether you are an enthusiast or simply curious to know more, this book is for you.

Pietro Fontana opened a microbrewery in Monza, Italy, where he is both owner and brewer: Piccolo Opificio Brassicolo del Carrobiolo-FERMENTUM, a member of the Italian cultural association Unionbirrai. Apart from producing sought-after beers, he organizes introductory courses to home brewing and tastings of quality beers. In 2011 and 2013, some of his beers obtained the highest recognition available to Italian brewers, being included in Slowfood's Guida alle birre d'Italia (a guide to Italian beers). In 2014, he extended his brewery, adding a new production area and a brewpub--the first in the city. Fabio Petroni specializes in portraits and still lifes. He has photographed leading Italian celebrities, and works with top advertising agencies where he handles important Italian brands. His books with White Star include Horses: Master Portraits, Mutt's Life!, Cocktails, Orchids, Tea Sommelier, and Bonsai. He lives in Milan.
