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
