"CHOICE" OUTSTANDING ACADEMIC BOOK OF THE YEAR 2011

WINNER OF THE 2011 GOURMAND WORLD COOKBOOK UK AWARD

"This important volume sheds new light on the social, political, and economic role of beer in society and greatly increases the depth and breadth of anthropological studies on drinking. Schiefenhovel and Macbeth have compiled a holistic and to some extent comprehensive volume that embraces biological, archaeological, linguistic, and sociocultural perspectives on beer...Highly Recommended.."Choice

"This volume has three main strengths, although a careful reading of each of its chapters will yield many other gems of insight and information...makes a solid and I expect long-lasting contribution to the anthropology of food." . JRAI

"This book is both an excellent source of original interdisciplinary research on many aspects of beer and an entertaining read, suitable for both scholars and the educated general public. It contains well written studies of a beverage that has become a staple in many cultures, including those of the German-speaking peoples." . Yearbook of German-American Studies

"With contributions from a wide range of disciplines, this book provides an introduction to the social aspects of beer in modern society and how this has evolved over the very many years of its history and development...I found this book to be completely absorbing and thought provoking...an unexpected gem and the perfect book to keep in a travel bag." . Brewer & Distiller International

"This impressive volume based on an original interdisciplinary and cross-national approach to the study of beer and brewing . . . will not only make an important contribution to our knowledge of beer and brewing, but also of drinking cultures and historical change. It will be of interest to anthropologists, social scientists and the wider public." .Marion Demossier, University of Bath"
