Brand New Book

Essentially this is a book about the breweries of the county of Kent, arranged alphabetically by town and detailing the history of each one. As such it's the kind of reference book that local historians will find very useful to have on their shelves as there is very little published on this subject. Although the main section of the book is the gazetteer of the breweries and their histories, there are helpful introductory sections on the origins of beer in Kent, the growing and harvesting of hops, the oast house, the malthouse and the public house.
