Disclaimer:  It has been brought to our attention that not all of the information in Beer's History is completely accurate.  Like all such resources, it is a good starting place, but you might want to double check the information for accuracy.  Please let me know of any thing that you know is wrong and I will add notes to the offending section.  All in all, the book makes for good reading!
