Top 10 books about wine, beer, and spirits to read in lockdown

A Brief History of Lager, Mark Dredge

Fancy a deep dive into an oddly specific side of beer? Expert Mark Dredge delves into the history of lager, from how it was first brewed to what role was played by German monks and kings in the creation of the drink we know so well today.

The book was shortlisted in the 2019 AndrĂ© Simon Food & Drink Awards, and despite being a pleasant read, is far from a basic introduction to beer, revealing in-depth stories behind iconic brands, and showing how, without one of the world’s biggest brewers, the drink would undoubtedly not be what it is today.

A Brief History of Lager is available from Amazon and Waterstones.
