This vintage book contains a historical study on the effects of beer. It includes a wealth of information on alcoholism, popularity, manufacturing techniques, cultural influence, famous studies, legislation, and more. "The Effects of the Beer upon Those who Make and Drink it - A Statistical Sketch" will appeal to those with an interest in the history of alcohol, and would make for a worthy addition to collections of allied literature. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on beer brewing.
