Discover the decisive role beer has had in the course of history, how
it is central to many European cultures and customs, inspired art and,
even, brought armies together in a ceasefire in the midst of world war.
The history of beer stretches back as far as humans have engaged in
agriculture, it has been a basic food as long as bread.Includes potted histories of some of the world's most famous beers,
from Guinness to Carlsberg, Whitbread Bitter, Spitfire Kentish Ale, to
Peroni Nastro Azzurro and, even, Ur-Bock Dunkel (once Martin Luther's
favourite beer).A celebration of the quirky, and influential, Down Beer Street will
appeal to anyone who has watched 'QI'; in a series of short,
entertaining chapters the authors provide a pint-sized history of the
world.
