"In itself, beer is a simple product with just a few basic ingredients. But listeners will learn how complex the subject of beer is as the author walks them through its history, culture, and extensive agricultural origins. This is not a book in the traditional sense but a series of lectures that can be a bit academic at times. But the British author's pacing, expertise, occasional humor, and breadth of knowledge are enjoyable. While anyone who drinks beer will gain a greater understanding of the frothy lager, this is a must-read for anyone thinking about brewing. By the time the production is over, listeners will appreciate beer more than ever. M.B. (c) AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine"
