Enables the nonspecialist to understand the chemistry and microbiology of brewing. Bamforth, an esteemed authority on brewing science, covers everything from the basis of selection of the best barley, hops, and yeast through the composition of beer as it affects the taste, head, and wholesomeness of the finished drink. He traces the history of beer from ancient Babylon to today's sophisticated brewing centers, and forecasts what the brewing industry will look like in the 21st century.

"This excellent book...is a good read for anyone interested in the science of beer or its consumption."—Chemistry World

Reviews of the 2nd Edition:

"Brilliant! There has been an unfilled market for this type of book. . . . Happily, this book . . .is by a wide margin the best reference now available . . . The book is very well written. It has a light, almost breezy style that is mixed with a subtle yet attractively understated British wit. It is above all a great read that is hard to put down. The strongest part of this book is the discussion of the brewing process. . . . In summary, Beer: Tap into the Art and Science of Brewing is a brilliant achievement that nontechnical people will find accessible and quite valuable. It is also highly recommended for technical people because it does show how the art and science of brewing can be communicated effectively to a wider audience." — American Brewer

"The authoritative, clear and easily understood description of a complex, technical, and sometimes mysterious subject is the book's greatest value."—Choice
