Format: Paperback
Whether you're a wine-maker or homebrewer, a connosieur of wines and/or beers, or simply someone who is fascinated with the history of colonial New England, this book is a useful addition to your library. Taking you step by step through the various types of fermented drink made by the settlers of the northeastern New World, it explains what the colonists drank, why they drank it, how they harvested the ingredients for their brews, and (for the do-it-yourselfers)a section on how to accurately reproduce modern equivalents. The book reopens doors to what may have become a fairly close-minded world of home-made fermented beverage, as well as providing wonderful historical information about how the agriculture of the area effected the style of living of the time.

Format: Paperback
The recipes and history in this book encouraged me to step out of the ready-made-beer realm and experiment with various techniques and ingredients. Chock full of interesting tidbits especially for the beginning brewer. While not especially deep in detail the small volume goes far in breadth of topic to make it a worth while read.
