In Prost! author Horst Dornbusch has extracted from his vast knowledge of German history. and beer all of its best parts, and mixed them into a fine brew. His writing is engaging, intelligent, and spare, with crisp overtones of dry wit -- like a fine Pilsner. It's wunderbar!

Born and raised in Dusseldorf, Horst Dornbusch is as authentic as his subject, with German beer his lifetime passion. He's the founder of Dornbusch Brewing Company in Gloucester, Massachusetts, and lives with his family in Essex, Massachusetts.

LibraryThing Review

User Review  - BrianFannin - LibraryThing

Fairly basic and jingoistic primer about the history of beer in Germany. Loads of information missing or suspect. There's very little discussion about brewing in other countries, nor the effect that unification had on brewing in the north. A missed opportunity. Read full review
