Hi folks,

I've beem reading the excellent 'How to Brew' for a while now in between making my own brews. I'm a beginner and my house only had a very small kitchen so for now I'm extract brewing.

I'd like to learn more about the history of the different kinds of beer styles that are put there though if possible. While there are all sorts of different styles of beer I've not yet found a good cpmprehensive guide that explains how they developed and why (though Palmer's notes on some of his recipes in 'How to Brew' are very good). Any recommendations? Cheers folks.

Brew Britannia: The Strange Rebirth of British Beer: Amazon.co.uk: Boak, Jessica, Bailey, Ray: 8601411305658: Books is quite good and again their blog, boakandbailey, is excellent
