Charles Bamforth, who has been described as "one of the two or three brewing scientists of his generation," here gives us a revised and updated version of his definitive guide to brewing. Bamforth traces the history of beer from ancient Babylon some 8,000 years ago to today's brewing science, recounting important brewing milestones along the way. This new edition contains expansive coverage of global beer styles throughout the world, the sensory character of beer flavor, and the development of the global brewing industry. Each of the staples of brewing (barley, hops, water, and yeast), the fundamental processes of brewing (mashing, boiling, fermentation, maturation, and packaging), and the quality determinants (flavor, foam, color, and clarity) is covered in comprehensive detail. Never losing sight of the central role of science in beer's design and manufacture, Bamforth closes with some predictions about the future of the industry. Ideal for the beer lover, amateur brewer, hobbyist, and undergraduate alike, The Art and Science of Brewing Beer is the ideal one-volume handbook on brewing beer.

Reviews:
"Brilliant! There has been an unfilled market for this type of book. . . . Happily, this book . . .is by a wide margin the best reference now available . . . The book is very well written. It has a light, almost breezy style that is mixed with a subtle yet attractively understated British wit. It is above all a great read that is hard to put down. T he strongest part of this book is the discussion of the brewing process. . . . In summary, Beer: Tap into the Art and Science of Brewing is a brilliant achievement that nontechnical people will find accessible and quite valuable. It is also highly recommended for technical people because it does show how the art and science of brewing can be communicated effectively to a wider audience." -- American Brewer

"The authoritative, clear and easily understood description of a complex, technical, and sometimes mysterious subject is the book's greatest value."--Choice

Downloaded that a while back (PDF). Recommend it for some good reading. It's not a how-to guide, or anything, but some interesting information, and could be used for reference for some things. Entertaining reading if you are a beer fan (and why else would you be here?).
