Beer Book Sugestions 3 months 3 weeks ago #1

Just thought I’d start a thread on book recommendations on all thing’s beer. Doesn’t necessarily have to be brewing books (there’s plenty out there!) but more so about the history, business or just general pub culture.

I’ll throw down a few I’ve found interesting, please keep adding!

Beer in the Beehive - A History of Brewing in Utah
by Del Vance

This was written by a friend of mine (who also co-founded Uintah Brewing) and is written a bit like a thesis. Lots of sources and quotes. Utah is a quirky state when it comes to alcohol, but it wasn't always so. Covers from about 1850 up to 2006 or so.

Unusual Railway Pubs, Refreshment Rooms and Ale Trains
by Bob Barton

Would really have liked more detail in this, but it covers many quirky bars/pubs in train stations in England (mostly) and is very nicely illustrated. Such a shame that we've lost virtually all here in comparison. Portartlington station had two at one stage!
