Beer Is Proof God Loves Us is a funny, engaging, and downright joyous examination of the whole world of beer and brewing. Your guide, Charlie Bamforth, may be the world's #1 expert on every aspect of beer. After a worldwide search, he was selected as the first Anheuser-Busch Professor of Brewing Science at the University of California, Davis. Now, he presents the most compelling social history of beer ever written: where it came from, where the brewing business stands now, and what the future holds. In this far-reaching book, he reveals:
· The extraordinary complexity and artistry that can be found in great brewing
· The factors that impact beer quality and wholesomeness
· Centuries-old cultural values embedded in good beer
Bamforth also explains what the rise of new craft breweries means to beer drinkers and what the latest global trends will have on beer consumption. The book concludes with a look to the future, illustrating how environmental issues will change the brewing industry and addressing radical new approaches to brewing, such as Happoshu and malternatives.
It is now generally believed that, whereas Benjamin Franklin made many great observations, he did not actually say that “beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.” It seems that he did write, in a 1779 letter to the French economist André Morellet: “Behold the rain which descends from heaven upon our vineyards, there it enters the roots of the vines, to be changed into wine, a constant proof that God loves us, and loves to see us happy.” I am sure he had beer in his heart of hearts, though.
