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.
