I recently stumbled upon a REALLY small publishing company that specializes in publishing brewing books from the 18th and 19th century. They have published 7 books (5 brewing books and 2 distilling books) to date. Runs are limited to around 500 books. I just received my complete set of books, and I'm loving them!

These books are a great way to put what we do into historical perpective.

Check out their website: www.raudins.com/BrewBooks

Who else has seen these books?

What are your thoughts?

Old brewing books are always interesting
