Origin and History of Beer and Brewing: From Prehistoric Times to the Beginning of Brewing Science a
Here is a hard cover, fully-illustrated reprint edition of one of the truly classic brewing books -- Origin and History of Beer and Brewing. In 1911, brewing scholar John P. Arnold set out to fill a void that existed in brewing literature. It was to be a tribute to the founders of the world-famous Chicago brewing school, the Wahl-Henius Institute of Fermentology, on the occasion of its 25th anniversary. Up to that point, there had no comprehensive study of the brewing of beer throughout history. Arnold, a writer and historian, was particularly well-suited to tackle the collossal job of assembling a global history of brewing. He was a former student of the Wahl-Henius Institute and long-time editor of the Siebel Technical Review.
