Craft beer is officially everywhere: there are now more breweries in the United States since any time before prohibition. At the local grocery store, the beer aisle is as big as the cereal aisle. At the bar, it's increasingly hard to choose a beer--the IPA is stronger than the ESB, right? In this book, Ashley V. Routson (aka The Beer Wench) provides the first all-in-one guide that demystifies beer and makes learning fun. She'll quickly bring you up to speed on beer styles, the brewing process, how to taste beer like a pro, and how to pair beer with food. Unconventional tastings, delicious recipes from killer craft breweries, eye-catching photos--and, of course, plenty of beer--means there's never a dull moment.

Have a Nice Beer!
This book if the first from a planned series focusing on craft beer and cooking recipes using beer, accompanied by many photos, movies, and other interactive elements. „We’re incredibly lucky to be living during a period of Renaissance of beer. There is an unbelievable amount of great beers waiting for us. Some have been forgotten and many more have yet to be discovered. There’s a hitherto undiscovered world of mysterious tastes, aromas and colors. With some honorable exceptions, these are not just the products of large multinational brewing conglomerations, but rather beer brewed at small and independent breweries, crafted with the love and knowhow of their makers. Despite many obstacles, these independent brewers – craft brewers from all over the world – have restored the traditional production of beer along with long-forgotten beer types. They don’t use food additives named after letters of the alphabet nor other gimmicks to increase profits at the expense of quality. Thus we can pleasure our senses with the authentic gastronomical experiences enjoyed by earlier peoples that are hard to find in this over-technologized and globalized period. All of the beers detailed in this book can be purchased. Though not completely accessible at regular shops, some supermarkets and a number of specialized shops offer sufficiently large selections. You can also find plenty of restaurants which pour daft beers from craft breweries both domestic and foreign. Many books have already been written about beer and each year more are published. There are comprehensive publications and encyclopedias, as well as various annual magazines and regional guidebooks. So how is my book different and how might you find it useful? First and foremost I have conceived it to be brief – I don’t want to burden you with excessive details. But also contains the latest information.
Through word and image I’ll introduce you to beer styles and specific brands of beers which are definitely worth tasting. I’ll try to provide you with basic information from the world of beers and together we’ll uncover the secret tastes and aromas hiding within them. We’ll also take a look at the origin of beer and the emergence of beer styles. We’ll say something about the production of beer at both an industrial scale and at microbreweries and home brewing. You will also learn how to use beer in the kitchen, and not just as a beverage while cooking. I’ll respond to any questions and comments at Facebook. May this book lead you to new experiences that will not only enrich you and your loved ones, but also allow you to make master brewers happy and aid them in their work in showing us what real beer should be like.
