Obviously the author is the narrator since this is a recording of his college lectures. This is good since he is a very interesting speaker. That said about 50% was of interest to me. The rest was more for college course and very technical. That said the 50% I was interested in was well worth the listen.
This is a really comprehensive yet simply put lecture series which explains the art of Brewing in layman's terms. Prof. Charlie Bamforth accepts that not all aspiring and current Brew Masters are "Doctors" of Brewing and while for some it is a good revision, I think for most it is an entertaining eye opener reinforcing and revealing much of the essential knowledge that brewers need. I have listened to it twice and learned something new both times and really enjoyed listening. I would imagine that those reading the book would lose out because of Prof. Bamforth's enthusiastic and entertaining lecture style.
If you want to learn more about the history of beer and about how beer is made, this is a worthwhile listen.
If you're a *serious* beer geek, then this one's for you. Even if you already know a lot about beer and the brewing process, there's enough meat on these bones to give you something. An in depth look at beer, brewing and beer history, it's well worth listening to if you're serious about beer. If you're not serious about beer, you may find it boring.
