Ita€™s finally herea€”the comprehensive, authoritative book that does for beer what The Wine Bible does for wine. Written by an expert from the West Coast, where Americaa€™s craft beer movement got its start, The Beer Bible is the ultimate reader- and drinker-friendly guide to all the worlda€™s beers. No other book of this depth and scope approaches the subject of beer in the same way that beer lovers doa€”by style, just as a perfect pub menu is organizeda€”and gets right to the pleasure of discovery, knowledge, and connoisseurship. Divided into four major familiesa€”ales, lagers, wheat beers, and tart and wild alesa€”therea€™s everything a beer drinker wants to know about the hundreds of different authentic types of brews, from bitters, bocks, and IPAs to weisses, milk stouts, lambics, and more. Each style is a chapter unto itself, delving into origins, ingredients, description and characteristics, substyles, and tasting notes, and ending with a recommended list of the beers to know in each category. Hip infographics throughout make the explanation of beera€™s flavors, brewing methods, ingredients, labeling, serving, and more as immediate as it is lively. The book is written for passionate beginners, who will love its a€œif you like X, try Ya€ feature; for intermediate beer lovers eager to go deeper; and for true geeks, who will find new information on every page. History, romance, the art of tasting, backstories and anecdotes, appropriate glassware, bitterness units, mouthfeel, and morea€”ita€™s all here. Plus a primer on pairing beer and food using the three Csa€” complement, contrast, or cut. Ita€™s the book that every beer lover will read with pleasure, and use with even more.The Essential Beer Lovera#39;s Guide Jeff Alworth. Gluten-Free. Beer. Gluten-Free. Standards.
