Publisher's Comments

Beer historian Smith proposes that all the values and beliefs European colonists brought with them to North America were formed of the millennia-old marriage between society and beer. He draws on diaries, letters, early law, and well documented events. The first part is a chronological narrative. The second considers such topics as taxation, the tavern, homebrewing, temperance and prohibition, and brewing technology. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
