History has been made, in Europe at least, with the help of a pint or two. The book presents various incidents where beer – drinking of beer, shortage of beer or the beer culture overall – has affected the course of History.
The purpose of the book is to depict the long tradition and wide-spread contexts of drinking beer in European history in a fresh way. It is – and has been – an essential part of the European culinary, a source of inspiration and even a builder of international friendship. Each of the 24 chapters concentrate in some historical incident or phenomenon related to beer. In the end of each chapter there is a presentation of the beer related to the topic.
