Publisher's Summary

Written by one of the world's leading authorities and hailed by American Brewer as "brilliant" and "by a wide margin the best reference now available," Beer offers an amusing and informative account of the art and science of brewing, examining the history of brewing, and how the brewing process has evolved through the ages.
The third edition features more information concerning the history of beer, especially in the United States; British, Japanese, and Egyptian beer; beer in the context of health and nutrition; and the various styles of beer. Author Charles Bamforth has also added detailed information on prohibition, Sierra Nevada, life as a maltster, hopgrowing in the northwestern US, and how cans and bottles are made. Finally, the audiobook includes new sections on beer in relation to food; contrasting attitudes towards beer in Europe and America; how beer is marketed, distributed, and retailed in the US; and modern ways of dealing with yeast.

Cant tell. Audiobook wont play correctly

Sounds like CD skipping. Thanks for nothing. Very disappointing, indeed, to waste a credit on a fail.
