The next great ingredient in the craft cocktail revolution has arrived: craft beer.

Bartender and cocktail consultant Jacob Grier offers up more than fifty thirst-quenching concoctions featuring beer. Long considered a beverage best enjoyed on its own, beer has now become a favorite ingredient for top bartenders around the world. In Cocktails on Tap, Grier collects the best of these contemporary creations alongside forgotten classics.

While the Mai Ta-IPA adds a refreshing note to a tropical favorite, the Green Devil boosts a powerful Belgian beer with gin and a rinse of absinthe. In Cocktails on Tap, the vast range of today’s beers, from basic lagers to roasty stouts and sour Belgian ales, is shaken up for mixologists looking to add some spice—and hop—to their repertoire.

“Grier is a masterful guide through the wickedly creative terrain of beer cocktails, offering not just delightful recipes, but history and cultural commentary, too. Connoisseurs and neophytes alike will find much to savor, and the latter will appreciate Jacob’s tutelage in cocktail basics. Grab a copy and start mixing!” —Maureen Ogle, author of Ambitious Brew: The Story of American Beer

“Jacob Grier was at the forefront of the beer cocktail renaissance before many of us had ever contemplated the idea of a beer cocktail. His vast knowledge of beer and passionate dedication to this area of mixology is certain to push the craft of cocktails forward in a positive new direction.” —Jeffrey Morgenthaler, author of The Bar Book

Lambic (Classic Beer Style Series) Kindle Edition – $8.79 – much more expensive in print

Lambic (Classic Beer Style Series) Kindle Edition

Lambic (Classic Beer Style Series) Kindle Edition by Jean-Xavier Guinard is part of the Classic Beer Style Series of books.  This title may also be available in print.

After studying this unusual, fruity beer style extensively in Belgium and at the University of California-Davis Department of Fermemtation Studies, Jean-Xavier Guinard presents his findings with detail and historical intrigue.


 

This book was originally released in 1990 as part of the Classic Beer Styles Series.  That series devotes an entire book to a single beer style and covers many beer styles.  For whatever reason this specific title went out of print.  Just this title, the rest, or most at least most of the rest of series, remained in print.  This led to some very interesting pricing.  Some sellers had stocks of brand new books.  Supply and demand took hold and it wasn’t uncommon to see this title sell for $100 or $200 or even more for a new copy.  Used copies were, and generally are, available for less, but generally very expensive, at least in my opinion.  Finally, in 2016, this title was released on the Kindle platform and now, generally sells for what I would call a reasonable price.  Get the current price below.
