Product description

From the Back Cover

From its roots in early civilizations to its modern role in globalization, the role of beer through time and space have influenced the culture, economics, and environments of what society has grown, produced, and consumed.
This edited collection examines the various influences, relationships, and developments beer has had from distinctly spatial perspectives.
The chapters explore the functions of beer and brewing from unique and sometimes overlapping historical, economic, cultural, environmental and physical viewpoints.
Topics from authors – both geographers and non-geographers alike – have examined the influence of beer throughout history, the migration of beer on local to global scales, the dichotomous nature of global production and craft brewing, the neolocalism of craft beers, and the influence local geography has had on beer’s most essential ingredients: water, starch (malt), hops, and yeast.
At the core of each chapter remains the integration of spatial perspectives to effectively map the identity, changes, challenges, patterns and locales of the geographies of beer.
