Brewing in Dorset

Availability: In stock

Author: Tim Edgell, Mike Bone

Seen together for the first time, this fascinating collection of nearly 200 images illustrates Dorset’s rich and varied brewing history.

The brewing industry of the county is explored from the nineteenth century to the current crop of micro-brewers, with their remarkable range of ales, bringing history up to date. Aspects such as malting, transport, tied pubs and advertising are included in this comprehensive history, which provides an overview of Dorset’s brewing heritage before looking more closely at individual concerns in geographically based chapters.

A valuable insight into two centuries of changes in the brewing industry is provided by the wealth of photographs and prints. Informative captions complement the images, making the book an entertaining reference point.

There was a time when most Dorset towns had a brewery chimney as a landmark. While many remain, some have fallen by the wayside. Across the county the number of micro-breweries continues to rise, reinvigorating the industry. The authors will take the reader through their individual stories.

Fully illustrated, the book will inspire the reader to visit a Dorset pub and buy a Dorset beer.
