Enjoy a light-hearted look at the world of beer, from ancient times to the present. This fun-to-read dictionary and reference book is perfect for every cerevisaphile (beer lover or enthusiast). Award-winning author and historian Gregg Smith and co-author Carrie Getty cover every beer-related fact throughout history — from words and phrases to famous and little-known quotes and toast, taverns, glasses and vessels, and beer styles. For example: What was a frog glass? A Methusaleh? A firkin? A cheese? Who is the patron saint of brewers? What is bousa? (Bousa: type of Egyptian beer, brewed from millet and popular for more than 3,000 years. In modern Ethiopia a version may be made from wheat. Some argue this was the origin of the word booze. Other spellings include boza, bouza, and booza.)
