Book—Beer Is Proof God Loves Us

If you meet up regularly with your friends over beer and find out pretty soon you run out of conversational subjects, having discussed to the death of the merits of a Kenny Daglish-led Liverpool FC, the strategic geo-political implications of a post-Mubarak regime in Egypt, the Sultan of Sulu at Kg. Likas, and the antics of your gay dog, there is always…beer to talk about.

Charles W. Bamforth’s Beer Is Proof God Loves Us: Reaching for the Soul of Beer and Brewing (published October, 2010, 304 pages) is a good reference book to out-conversate (is this a word?) your beer cronies.

At the back cover:

“A delightful book that not only reaches the soul of brewing but also tells us much about the soul and humanity of the author. Bamforth skillfully weaves a holistic and philosophical story about our complex society and the positive role that beer has, does, and will play in it. It is a joy to read and will leave the reader refreshed in mind and soul.”
–Simon Jackson, Executive Director, Institute of Brewing and Distilling, London, England
