Beer and Brewing in Pre-Industrial Denmark

By Kristof Glamann

Contributions by: Geoffrey French

Down through the centuries, beer has remained an essential element in the human diet. Brewing has been a household art, practiced in town and country alike. This book examines historical beer production in Denmark. Brewing made use of one of the nation's economically most prominent crops. Some of the main themes of development during the 19th century are depicted, when large scale brewing was introduced based on top-fermented beers, improved refrigeration, quality control due to new insight in the laws of nature, as well as improved quality of barley and other raw materials.
