A Nat­u­ral His­tory of Beer

Craft Beer & Brewing Magazine - - The Mash - By Rob De­salle & Ian Tat­ter­sall, Yale Uni­ver­sity Press

There are plenty of books out there that can teach you how to make great beer, but how many books ex­plain the ge­netic ori­gins of brew­ing and how beer has pro­gressed (bi­o­log­i­cally speak­ing) over mil­len­nia? This ex­haus­tive new vol­ume from Yale Uni­ver­sity Press tack­les bi­ol­ogy in a his­tor­i­cal per­spec­tive, from the ear­li­est brew­ers to to­day, with equal parts anec­dote and sci­en­tific rigor. The re­sult is a book both rich in his­tor­i­cal con­text and foren­sic bi­ol­ogy. A must for any­one who re­ally wishes to un­der­stand how beer has pro­gressed to what we call it to­day. —Jamie Bogner
