The brewhouse was an essential part of the English country house providing the staple drink of the household. The brewhouses their location, construction and operation rather than the technicalities of brewing are the focus of this book; however the types of beer & their ingredients, the seasonal brewing patterns, the various classes of customer drinkers and finally the demise of the household beer system are discussed. Useful appendices of volumetric measures, surviving brewhouses & copious bibliography.
