The Beer Bible [pb]
By Jeff Alworth
The essential beer lover's guide, including more than 100 types to know, arranged style by style.
Imagine sitting in your favorite pub with a friend who happens to be a world-class expert on beer. That's this book. It covers the history: how we got from gruel-beer to black IPA. The alchemy: malts, grains, and the miracle of hops. The variety: dozens of styles and hundreds of recommended brews (including suggestions based on your taste preferences), divided into four sections- Ales, Wheat Beers, Lagers, and Tart and Wild Ales- and all described in mouthwatering detail. The curiosity: how to read a Belgian beer label; the tale of two Budweisers; porter, the first superstyle; and what, exactly, a lager is. And the pleasure. Because you don't merely taste beer, you experience it. 656 pages
