Beer Is Proof God Loves Us: Reaching for the Soul of Beer and Brewing By: Charles W. Bamforth

Tomcat pee, wet paper flavor and skunky beer?

Beer Is Proof God Loves Us: Reaching for the Soul of Beer and Brewing is a well written book with emotional warmth for beer. It covers the industry and the global evolution of breweries and brands, brewery history, and beer drinking, mainly within the United Kingdom (UK) and United States through the perspective of the author, a "beer person.".

It's about the barley, hops, yeast, water, fermentation, flavor, control and quality; about stouts, ales and lagers; about pubs and drafts, bottles and cans.

It is noted that the Czechs drink more beer - Liters per Head, than any other country, with Germany and Ireland following. The UK taxes beer at the highest rate in Europe. China is where the world market growth of beer consumption is growing the greatest.

One of the topics in Beer Is Proof God Loves Us: Reaching for the Soul of Beer and Brewing is tolerance, writing to the prohibitionist tendencies of a large number of people and arguments against alcohol... but hey "beer is not for everyone."

The end notes after the conclusion offer lots of additional information and amusement.

Beer Is Proof God Loves Us: Reaching for the Soul of Beer and Brewing is Highly Recommended and makes a Wonderful Gift! *Clink and Cheers!* --Katharena Eiermann, 2010
