Research carried out during the last quarter of the 20th century has permitted us to re-think the way in which some ancient civilizations went about their beer production. There have also been some highly innovative technical developments, many of which have led to the sophistication and efficiency of 21st-century brewing methodology. This comprehensive account of the history of beer covers a time-span of around 8000 years, stimulating the reader to consider how, and why, the first fermented beverages might have originated. It also establishes some of the parameters that encompass the diverse range of alcoholic beverages assigned the generic name "beer" and considers the possible means of dissemination of early brewing technologies from their Near Eastern origins. The study is aimed at a wide readership, particularly beer enthusiasts, however the use of quotations and references associated with them should enable the serious scholar to delve into this subject in even greater depth.
