A wonderful book dealing with the changes and transformations that the brewing industry underwent in England from 1700-1830; it would be no exaggeration to say that large-scale industrialization first happened in brewing, and that patterns of industrialized development established in brewing resonated throughout the rest of the industrial revolution in England. Mathias deals with not just the colorful history and narratives of certain breweries and brewers, but also with a lot of hard-core detail and data. (There's a statistical appendix, for example.) For anyone interested in the history of English brewing, this book is well worth your time... though sadly out of print and, unless you're lucky like me and find it cheaply gotten second hand someplace, rather expensive to acquire.
