It closes with the revival of the industry in the era of industrialization.- Major technical innovations, from Germany, in the 14th and again in the 19th century, made it possible for brewing to take a leading role in the Dutch economy. The adaptation of those improvements went on always under the careful supervision of the state.- Relying on the extensive records of urban and provincial governments the author traces the cooperation as well as tension between brewers and public authorities spanning one thousand years.
