Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
I purchased this book because of my love for all types of beer. I have always been fascinated by the stories behind German beers. I had never realized, until I read this book, how each individual style evolved on its own and the politics behind it. I have purchased three additional copies of "Prost" to give as gifts to my friends who truly appreciate a great beers and the stories behind them. The author is both technically and intellectually competent, and surprisingly well written for someone whose native language is German. I would like to have, if given the opportunity, the pleasure of meeting him and meeting him and autographing my book.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Pass the beer 6. Oktober 2011
Von Christopher Obert - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I found this book to be very fascinating. I am not a big beer drinker myself but I found the history and information in this book to be interesting. First I did not know that beer and European history were so intertwined. I also did not know much about the brewing of beer or what the difference was between ale and lager. Now that I have read this book I am more interested in trying to find the right beer for me. I look forward to reading more of Horst's books.

This is great for people interested in the history of the best beer in the world. Horst is very informative and the book will hold your attention from start to finish. My favorite part is the breakdown of all the different styles of German beers.

Von John Staradumsky - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Horst Dornbusch wrote the book on German beer, or more precisely a book, entitled Prost! The Story of German Beer, a history of German suds written for English-speaking readers. If there’s anyone more qualified to write such a work, I don’t know of him. Dornbusch was born in Düsseldorf, Germany, the home of altbier, a style which he brought with him to the United States. After earning a Masters Degree in politics at Brandeis University, Horst worked in journalism until he finally decided to pursue his true calling, brewing, in 1995. That was the year the Dornbusch Brewing Company originated in Massachusetts.

Horst was on a mission: to brew fine German-style beers in America. In keeping with this he brewed up a wonderful Dortmunder lager, and an authentic Dusseldorfer Alt. Alt in German means old, and in this usage refers to the days when all beers were ales because lager yeast had not yet been discovered. Dornbusch Alt was released in swing-top one-liter bottles at first, produced at Ipswich Brewing in Massachusetts, and six-packs contract brewed at Smuttynose Brewing in New Hampshire. I always preferred the Ipswich-brewed Alt (Horst supervised the process), and took these tasting notes on it:

Dornbusch Alt is deep russet in color with a firm, slightly sweet malt background that is quickly overpowered by the intensely fruity hop palate and spectacularly bitter finish. Some wheat is employed here giving the beer a slightly lighter body. Warm fermentation is followed by cold lagering, a process that is often used to reduce fruity ale esters and make a beer a bit smoother, but there is simply too much hop activity going on here to allow that. Not to be missed!

Famed Austrian beer writer Conrad Seidel once described Dornbusch Alt to me as “more authentic than current German versions”. Dornbusch is a friendly fellow, too, and a wonderful drinking companion. I had a grand time sharing beers with him at Coddington Brewpub in Middletown, Rhode Island, several years ago just before his book was released. We talked about German beer, the decoction versus infusion debate, and the state of brewing in New England.

OK, we’ve established that Horst Dornbusch can brew great beer, but can he write about? He certainly can, as you will discover after reading Prost! The Story of German Beer. Ever wonder why German beer tastes so darned good? Read Prost! and you’ll know why. You’ll also learn about more German beer styles than you knew existed. Horst covers:

Alt
Berliner Weisse
Bock
Doppelbock
Dortmunder
Dunkel
Export
Eisbock
Hefeweizen
Helles
Kolsch
Kristallweizen
Malzbier
Marzen
Oktoberfest
Pilsner
Rauchbier
Schwarzbier
Vienna/ Wiener
Weizen
Weizenbock
Weizendoppelbock

Prost! The Story of German Beer starts out with the early history of beer in Sumeria and Egypt, and quickly moves on to the origins of beer in early German culture. One of the amazing things about Horst’s book is the way he weaves German social and cultural history into a context of beer and brewing. He shows us how most beer was originally homebrew, produced by housewives, or Hausfrauen.

As time goes by, the reader learns about the introduction of hops to beer, how the royal courts and religious authorities controlled the beer trade, how beer built the powerful Hansa trade league, how bock beer got its name, and how the first lagers were discovered empirically. The famous German Beer Purity Law, the Reinheitsgebot of 1516 is also covered and included in the original German.

Prost! The Story of German Beer is a quick read and can be polished off in an evening, preferably with a cold German brew. It is 148 pages long and includes many interesting photos, though they are in black and white. At the end of the book a helpful glossary of brewing terms and timeline of German brewing history is included.

Prost! The Story of German Beer is a must-read for the serious beer enthusiast, but it’s also recommended to history students who will appreciate its social-cultural aspects, and the way beer in Germany is such an integral part of them.

This is a very readable overview of German brewing history and for German beer fans who travel to Germany, it is truly enlightening. A larger updated volume by Horst Dornbusch would be welcome but until then this is by far the best book on the subject I have found. I am very pleased to have found a copy via Amazon.
