The Complete Beer Course: Boot Camp for Beer Geeks: From Novice to Expert in Twelve Tasting Classes [Kindle Edition] by Joshua M Bernstein


From the book description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

It’s a great time to be a beer drinker, but also the most confusing, thanks to the dizzying array of available draft beers. Expert Joshua M. Bernstein comes to the rescue with The Complete Beer Course, demystifying brews and breaking down the elements that make beer’s flavor spin into distinctively different and delicious directions. Structured around a series of easy-to-follow classes, his course hops from lagers and pilsners to hazy wheat beers, Belgian-style abbey and Trappist ales, aromatic pale ales and bitter IPAs, roasty stouts, barrel-aged brews, belly-warming barley wines, and mouth-puckering sour ales. There is even a class on international beer styles and another on pairing beer with food and starting your own beer cellar. Through suggested, targeted tastings, you’ll learn when to drink down-and when to dump those beers down a drain.

“Enjoy a quick brew day and make Gose, Smoked Ale, Pennsylvania Swankey, Strawberry-Peppercorn Short Mead, Tart Blackberry Cider, Boozy Kombucha, Kefir Beer, Absinthola, Mauby, Tepache, and more!

Homebrew tastes great, it’s inexpensive to make, and it’s equally fun to brew old favorites and new recipes. There’s only one thing stopping you from brewing your 1st or 101st batch: time. Whether it’s your kids, your job, or a million other things, it can be hard to find a free brew day. Then there’s the agonizing wait to crack that first cap.

But what if you could brew a session IPA in just a few hours? Or if you could brew a sour beer that’s ready to drink in weeks instead of months? In Speed Brewing, author Mary Izett shows you how to make it happen. Whether you’re a new or experienced brewer, you’ll find time-saving techniques and recipes that save hours on brew day. You’ll also find beers, ciders, and meads that pack big flavors but ferment quickly. Lesser-known fast fermentables–boozy kombucha, kefir beer, spirited sodas, and more–ensure there are plenty of exciting experiments for even the most creative brewer. Whether you decide to brew the Bia Hoi, Smoked Summer Ale, or Strawberry-Peppercorn Short Mead, weeknights will never be the same.”

New Release: Ancient Brews Rediscovered and Re-Created

Ancient Brews: Rediscovered and Re-created by Patrick E. McGovern (Author), Sam Calagione (Foreword)


From the book description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

One of Smithsonian Magazine’s Ten Best Books of the Year about Food
A Forbes Best Booze Book of the Year

Interweaving archaeology and science, Patrick E. McGovern tells the enthralling story of the world’s oldest alcoholic beverages and the cultures that created them. Humans invented heady concoctions, experimenting with fruits, honey, cereals, tree resins, botanicals, and more. These “liquid time capsules” carried social, medicinal, and religious significance with far-reaching consequences for our species. McGovern describes nine extreme fermented beverages of our ancestors, including the Midas Touch from Turkey and the 9000-year-old Chateau Jiahu from Neolithic China, the earliest chemically identified alcoholic drink yet discovered. For the adventuresome, homebrew interpretations of the ancient drinks are provided, with matching meal recipes.

Hop Variety Handbook: Learn More About Hops [Kindle] – $4.99

Hop Variety Handbook: Learn More About Hops...Create Better Beer

Hop Variety Handbook: Learn More About Hops…Create Better Beer by Dan Woodske


From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

Why do hops give off the flavor and aroma that they do? “Because” is not the answer. They vary in Alpha Acids. Beta Acids, Myrcene and a host of other oils and acids. Where they are grown even matters.

This book covers over 110 individual hops and breaks them down piece-by-piece so you can properly craft your next homebrew. It also gives you information on what to expect regarding flavor and aroma.

The Author owns a brewpub (Beaver Brewing Company) and was constantly getting asked about the hops in his beer and how he got it to taste like that.

After months of leafing through sales, brochures, researching hop farmers, and experimenting himself he puts all of that hopped up knowledge into one source in an easy to access manner specifically for the homebrewer in all of us.
