"Fermentation and plant use - as medicine, as psychotropics, as teachers, as companions on life's path - are an inescapable part of our exploration of what it means to be human. Ths this book conflicts with a number of popular beliefs about alchohol, plants, and the nature of material reality. It is, therefore, not politically correct.
...The ancient beers, created ... between 10,000 and 30,000 years ago, were quite different from what we know as beer today. Many were sacred beers, and hundreds contained medicinal herbs." ~ From the book
The author explores the sacredness and folklore of ancient fermentation as revealed through 200 plants and hive products. Includes 120 recipes for ancient and indigenous beers and meads from 31 countries and six continents.
