This was disappointing - no more in this volume than is available online as a free copy of his thesis. I was expecting a bit more narrative and perspective for the money.

The Barbarians Beverage is an indispensable secondary source source for the history of beer in Europe from ancient times to the Middle Ages. Top quality scholarship providing critical evaluation of the primary literature. Well written and a pleasure to read.

I bought this book as homebrewer who is fascinated by ancient beer history. It certainly delivers that, in a very dry college thesis term paper way. In fact, half the book is references telling you where the author found his info. There are NO ancient homebrewing recipes, and it's a humorless but intellectual read.
I love beer history enough that I'm glad I bought it, but it's not for everybody. I wish I had paid less for it.
