Beer for the Genius

Sep 23, 2015

From the "For the Genius" series (counter to the other series "for dummies"), Denver-based alcohol writer Richard English visited "First Take with Lando and Chavis" to discuss his "Barrel-aged compendium of Frosty Beer Knowledge," "Beer for the Genius."

"The very ancient times of beer, from its discovery up through the early days of Christianity, beer has been right there," said English.  His book contends "Beer history is human history."

Art, politics, gender relations, commerce, it's all there in a very fun style of prose and design.

Baseball arrived in Denver long before the big league Colorado Rockies. Babe Ruth barnstormed through Denver. So did Josh Gibson, Satchell Paige and the 1937 Trujillo All-Stars from the Dominican Republic. And Coors Field is the fifth baseball park Denver has seen.
