Sinopsis:

Winner of Beer Book of the Year at the 2016 British Guild of Beer Writers Awards The history of ale and beer is pitted with strange tales. Take the way the RAF made sure British troops received supplies of beer after the D-Day landings in 1944, for example: they filled up the fuel drop-tanks slung below Spitfire fighters with mild and bitter and flew seventy-five gallons at a time over to the makeshift landing strips in Normandy. Then there’s the Great London Beer Flood of 1814, when a giant vat at Meux’s brewery in Tottenham Court Road broke and 570 tons of beer smashed down the brewery’s back wall and flooded out into the streets, killing eight people. The link between ale and bridal gowns, the odd story of pea beer, the most notorious brewer in history, the true story of the yard of ale and brewing beer from Christmas trees these and many other tales have been collected by Martyn Cornell, an award-winning writer and beer historian, and will amuse, entertain and educate beer fans everywhere.

About the Author:

Martyn Cornell is an eight-times winner at the British Guild of Beer Writers' annual awards, and one of the UK's most-read beer bloggers. He has written about beer, beer and food, beer and travel and the history of beer for newspapers and magazines around the world, in countries from Hong Kong to the United States. His book 'Amber, Gold and Black' is regarded as the definitive history of British beer styles, and is used by the Slow Food Movement in Italy as part of its courses on food and drink appreciation.
