Brewing Local: American Grown Beer by Stan Hieronymus
Brewing Local: American Grown Beer by Stan Hieronymus author of Brew Like a Monk and more
About: Americans have brewed beers using native ingredients since pre-Columbian times, and a new wave of brewers has always been at the forefront of the locavore movement. These days they use not only both locally-grown, traditional ingredients, but cultivated and foraged flora to produce beers that capture the essence of the place they were made. In Brewing Local Stan Hieronymus examines the history of how distinctly American beers came about, visits farm breweries, and goes foraging for both plants and yeast to discover how brewers are using ingredients to create unique beers. The book introduces brewers and drinkers to how herbs, flowers, plants, trees, nuts, and shrubs flavor unique beers.
