In this fascinating book, beer expert Mark Dredge dives into the history of lager, from how it was first brewed to what role was played by German monks and kings in the creation of the drink we know so well today. From the importance of 500-year-old purity laws to a scrupulously researched exploration of modern beer gardens (it's a hard life), Mark has delved deep into the story of the world's favourite beer.

From 16th Century Bavaria to the recent popularity of specialist craft lagers, A BRIEF HISTORY OF LAGER is an engaging and informative exploration of a classic drink.
