Proof: The Science of Booze

It's one thing to enjoy the nuances of a great drink, be it a pint of beer, a glass of wine, a nip of scotch, or a fully realized cocktail. It's quite another to understand the science behind how it's made, why it tastes like it does, and why you're drinking it. Proof: The Science of Booze takes a look at alcohol production from a unique perspective, beginning with its discovery thousands of years ago, tracing its evolution all the way up to today's most modern liquor laboratories, and examining both the science behind its creation and the psychology and neurobiology that makes us like it. Best when read with a drink.
