A Beer History: A Day at a Time Through the Year

A Beer History: A Day at a Time Through the Year

Beer Library

Book Type

When you take that first pleasing sip of your favorite brew, do you ever wonder where it came from? Not who made it or where it was bottled, but where and how beer itself was born. You might think of German or British brewers, but A Beer History: A Day at a Time Through the Year takes you back to beer’s earliest beginnings—ancient Sumeria, some four to six thousand years ago.
