Abstract
  • This article analyzes how this transition occurred and what significant developments took place that allowed beer and ale to become a tradable and profitable good on the European market. Specifically, it examines the development of brewing as a tripartite progression: (a) that beer and ale were brewed in the 3 home and the significance of domestic brewing on the local society and economy; (b) that beer and ale were brewed in monasteries and the significance monastic brewing had on the monks, local peasants, and local lords; and (c) that brewing became a commercial enterprise that was profitable and even revered as a profession. In examining these three sub-developments this article investigates how brewing impacted Europe’s local and regional economies and the importance of beer and ale to both society and culture in the medieval period.
