Publisher's Summary

In this fascinating book, beer expert Mark Dredge dives into the history of lager, from how it was first brewed, to what role was played by German monks and kings in the creation of the drink we know so well today. 

From the importance of 500-year-old purity laws to a scrupulously researched exploration of modern beer gardens (it's a hard life), Mark has delved deep into the story of the world's favourite beer.   

From 16th-century Bavaria to the recent popularity of specialist craft lagers, A Brief History of Lager is an engaging and informative exploration of a classic drink.

Learned quite a bit about lager beers

I really enjoyed this title as I learned about the long history of lager beers and their beginnings in Europe several hundred years ago. Dredge did a great job of tracing the history of lagers from their beginnings and how they evolved from their original form to the modern style of lagers produced by different sizes of breweries from small craft breweries all the way up to huge international conglomerates.

The pacing and delivery were excellent and went well with my scenic drives through NE Iowa and SW Wisconsin as the leaves reached their peak this fall.

I would totally recommend this audiobook to anyone seeking to learn more about beer.
