Even those who know pretty much all they want to about the subject will be very pleased now and again to find out how to pronounce words they have seen written for years, and perhaps heard as well without connecting the two. The entries include ingredients, equipment, creatures good and bad, processes, festivals, commercial terms, types of beer, measurements, organizations, acronyms, and other topics. They are well cross-referenced. Conversion tables and other data are appended. A substantial preface summarizes the history of beer. No date is noted for the first edition.
