A celebration of beer—its science, its history, and its impact on human culture

What can beer teach us about biology, history, and the natural world?

They explain how we came to drink beer, what ingredients combine to give beers their distinctive flavors, how beer’s chemistry works at the molecular level, and how various societies have regulated the production and consumption of beer.

Drawing from such diverse subject areas as animal behavior, ecology, history, archaeology, chemistry, sociology, law, genetics, physiology, neurobiology, and more, DeSalle and Tattersall entertain and inform with their engaging stories of beer throughout human history and the science behind it all. Readers are invited to grab a beer and explore the fascinating history of its creation.

The Meanings of Craft Beer (Kindle Single) by Evan Rail

The Meanings of Craft Beer (Kindle Single) Kindle Edition

The Meanings of Craft Beer (Kindle Single) Kindle Edition by Evan Rail


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

Craft beer is everywhere. But what is it? Award-winning journalist Evan Rail returns with this sharp take on craft beer — what it is, how it came about and what it means, from the 12th-century etymology of the Old English word “craft” to the reason contemporary craft brewers are beginning to reject the term. Two decades after the phrase “craft brewery” entered mainstream use, is there any remaining significance to the concept of a craft beer? With the annual craft beer business topping $20 billion, and with craft breweries regularly selling out for hundreds of millions, is it still fair to claim that craft brewers are artists — or has craft beer turned into something that it is not?

Hop Variety Handbook: Learn More About Hops [Kindle]

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.
