Some date back as far as the 17th and 18th centuries and have survived the turbulence of world wars, bomb damage, recessions, floods, and the hostility of politicians and the temperance movement. This book, by leading beer writer Roger Protz, traces the fascinating and sometimes fractious histories of the families still running these breweries. Many of the brewers remain in buildings of great architectural importance with gleaming coppers and wooden fermenting vessels, and a few still deliver beer by horse-drawn drays and employ coopers to fashion casks made of oak. But our family brewers are not living in the past. They have faced the challenges of the modern beer-drinking world and still produce beers that meet the demands of today’s consumers. Fully illustrated in colour throughout, with both modern and archive images of the breweries, their pub estates, beers and people.
