Liquid Bread PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Liquid Bread free pdf Beer is an ancient alcoholic drink which, although produced through a more complex process than wine, was developed by a wide range of cultures to become internationally popular. This book is the first multidisciplinary, cross-cultural collection about beer. It explores the brewing processes used in antiquity and in traditional societies- the social and symbolic roles of beer-drinking- the beliefs and activities associated with it- the health-promoting effects as well as the health-damaging risks- and analyses the modern role of large multinational companies, which own many of the breweries, and the marketing techniques that they employ.
