Beer : tap into the art and science of brewing

by:Bamforth, Charles W., 1952-

"This book introduces the reader to the history of brewing and how the brewing process has evolved throughout the aeons. The shape of the industry as it is today, in terms of types of company, where they operate, and how much beer they produce, is unveiled. Key milestones of brewing science are described - and the role that scientists working in the brewing industry have played in industries beyond brewing alone is highlighted. Each of the staples of brewing (barley, hops, water, and yeast) is covered in detail in terms of how it is selected, provided, and used. The fundamental processes of brewing (mashing, boiling, fermentation, maturation, and packaging) are explained lucidly, as are the techniques that are employed to assure quality in the process steam and product. The various styles of beer are explained, as are the fundamental quality determinants: flavor, color, foam, and clarity. The book explains not only why beer is invariably safe to drink but also why it can make a significant and beneficial contribution to the diet. Finally the book explores how the brewing industry is likely to evolve in the coming years."--Jacket.

Beer in health and disease prevention

by:Preedy, Victor R.

Presenting both the concerns and problems of beer consumption as well as the emerging evidence of benefit, Handbook of Beer Health and Disease Prevention offers a balanced view of today's findings and the potential of tomorrow's research.

From a beverage of warriors to a cheap and affordable commodity, beer has been a part of our consumption for nearly 8000 years. Like most alcoholic drinks it has been prone to abuse and in some counties the per capita consumption of beer has led to considerable health risks.

However, just as wine in moderation has been proposed to promote health, research is showing that beer -- and the ingredients in beer -- can have similar impact on improving health, and in some instances preventing disease. For example, some cancers like bladder cancers and the incidence of cardiovascular disease are reported to be lower in moderate beer drinkers. Furthermore there is a considerable body of emerging evidence to show that the anti-oxidant capacity of beers is high. It has been argued by some that the total antioxidants ingested in some beer drinkers equates that consumed by red wine drinkers.

The key to this, of course, is understanding and this volume presents a collection of the most current writings on the subject of beer and it's potential in health.

The audacity of hops : the history of America's craft beer revolution

by:Acitelli, Tom

"Charting the birth and growth of craft beer across the United States, Tom Acitelli offers an epic, story-driven account of one of the most inspiring and surprising American grassroots movements. In 1975, there was a single craft brewery in the United States; today there are more than 2,000. Now this once-fledgling movement has become ubiquitous nationwide--there's even a honey ale brewed at the White House. This book not only tells the stories of the major figures and businesses within the movement, but it also ties in the movement with larger American culinary developments. It also charts the explosion of the mass-market craft beer culture, including magazines, festivals, home brewing, and more. This entertaining and informative history brims with charming, remarkable stories, which together weave a very American business tale of formidable odds and refreshing success"-- Provided by publisher.
