    "Prost! is perhaps the only work in English that details how the political, economic, and social history of Germany are inextricably linked to its brewing history and culture. . . . Finally, there is an accurate, comprehensive overview of the history of beer and brewing in Germany that obviates the need to pore over volumes of dry history books, each of which may contain as little as one or two relevant bits about brewing." - Eric Warner | Karbach Brewing Company
