Descriptions of various beer recipes can be found in Sumerian writings, some of the oldest known writing of any sort. Brewing is done in a brewery by a brewer, and the brewing industry is part of most western economies. The methods used to produce beer may be unique to a beer style, geographic region, or company.

Origin and History of Beer and Brewing: From Prehistoric Times to the Beginning of Brewing Science and Technology.

Here is a hard cover, fully-illustrated reprint edition of one of the truly classic brewing books -- Origin and History of Beer and Brewing. In 1911, brewing scholar John P. Arnold set out to fill a void that existed in brewing literature. It was to be a tribute to the founders of the world-famous Chicago brewing school, the Wahl-Henius Institute of Fermentology, on the occasion of its 25th anniversary. Up to that point, there had no comprehensive study of the brewing of beer throughout history. Arnold, a writer and historian, was particularly well-suited to tackle the collossal job of assembling a global history of brewing. He was a former student of the Wahl-Henius Institute and long-time editor of the Siebel Technical Review. In recognition of Arnold's contribution to the study of brewing history, BeerBooks.com has reprinted Origin and History's pages exactly as they appeared in the first edition, complete with nearly 100 illustrations. An original 1911 copy was digitally scanned, professionally enhanced and reproduced in a hard cover format. In his foreword, Arnold gave some sense of the daunting challenge that this book represented: "The historian must strive to penetrate into the daily doings and occupations of the people...He must settle down with them, help them brew the honey-mead, watch them till their fields and sow their millet, barley, oats, or spelt, bake their bread and from it learn to make their beer...he must join them at their gatherings, clannish meetings and convivial feasts, when they discuss their common affairs over a stoup of ale or a tankard of foaming beer...He must be able to picture for himself the days of the tavern and the tap-room, the 'Golden Age' of drinking and feasting...Then, and not until then, will we learn and understand the true history of beer and brewing from the early beginning to the present day." That Arnold achieved this lofty goal is shown by the simple fact that, nearly a century later, the Origin and History of Beer and Brewing remains a cornerstone work in brewing literature.

Though it is an academic approach to the history of beer and brewing I found it insightful; however, it could really use an updated, revised, edition for a more modern audience. Even though it is dated the book still has a wealth of information about beer and brewing and how it figured in human development throughout history. If you have the patience you will find it a worthy read.

If you are into nostalgia and have an interest in reading books written in an archaic form, then this book is for you. If you are simply trying to learn about the history of brewing then you might want to look towards more modern books. I found this book to be a very hard read which makes any relevant information it may contain difficult to digest. I do not doubt the importance of this work to the study of brewing. But after 100 years there has to be better resources on the subject than this book.
