From the author of Bourbon, “the definitive history” (Sacramento Bee), comes the rollicking and revealing story of beer in America, in the spirit of Salt or Cod.

In The United States of Beer, Dane Huckelbridge, the author of Bourbon: A History of the American Spirit—a Southern Independent Booksellers Alliance bestseller—charts the surprisingly fascinating history of Americans’ relationship with their most popular alcoholic beverage. Huckelbridge shows how beer has evolved along with the country—from a local and regional product (once upon a time every American city has its own brewery and iconic beer brand) to the rise of global mega-brands like Budweiser and Miller that are synonymous with U.S. capitalism.

We learn of George Washington’s failed attempt to brew beer at Mount Vernon with molasses instead of barley, of the 19th century “Beer Barons” like Captain Frederick Pabst, Adolphus Busch, and Joseph Schlitz who revolutionized commercial brewing and built lucrative empires—and the American immigrant experience—and of the advances in brewing and bottling technology that allowed beer to flow in the saloons of the Wild West. Throughout, Huckelbridge draws connections between seemingly remote fragments of the American past, and shares his reports from the frontlines of today’s craft-brewing revolution.

There’s only one thing more rewarding than a top-quality craft beer on a summer’s day… that’s cracking open one you’ve brewed yourself!

Over 1 million Americans are already brewing their own beer, and there are many reasons you might want to join them.
If you’ve ever suffered a headache after drinking just a small amount of commercially produced beer, you’ll know first-hand the harsh effects of excess chemicals added during production.

The advantage of brewing your own is complete control over what you put in. Carefully controlling the ingredients means you can work around any intolerances whilst side-stepping any potentially nasty chemicals. This way, you create the perfect beer for you.

But by far, the most appealing aspect of homebrewing for most is the fact that you can share your creations with family and friends.

There’s nothing more satisfying than handing out your first batch of homebrew and watching your friends nod in satisfaction, knowing there’s plenty more where that came from.

Being new to brewing and with the many award-winning craft beers on the market, you might be asking yourself if you’re able to compete.

Don’t panic. Beer Brewing Bliss: Extract Brewing Basics is the first instalment of a two-part book series that will guide you from novice to brewing master. Start here with the basics of extract brewing, then move on to all-grain brewing in Beer Brewing Bliss: All-Grain Brewing Mastery.

In Beer Brewing Bliss: Extract Brewing Basics, you’ll find everything you need to know to get your journey off on the right foot… and get your first beers brewed to perfection. Inside, you’ll discover:
The crucial differences between extract brewing and all-grain brewing (you’ll need to know this if you’re considering purchasing a home brewing kit)
A comprehensive guide to choosing exactly the right brewing equipment for your current and future needs (including price guidelines)
A crisp and straightforward guide on how to properly sanitise your equipment
The careful process of turning water into wort
A clear understanding of how the most common base malts, speciality malts, and hops add the bulk of the flavour to your creation.
The role of yeast during fermentation (and why you shouldn’t just leave your brew)
How to effectively prime your beer without exploding bottles
Your role in the beer brewing process and the crucial steps you don’t want to skip (no matter how tempting it may seem!)
My top 10 tips for making sure your beer is not just adequate… but sensational
And much more.

Suppose you’ve always fancied yourself as a homebrewer but worry that you’ll never produce something as tasty as the award-winning brewers. If that’s the case, it’s time to take stock.

Every professional brewer began with a single batch… And who knows? Perhaps the next award-winning brew could be lovingly crafted in your own garage….

Winner of the International Association of Culinary Professionals’ Award for Best Cookbook in the Wine, Beer or Spirits category.

Garrett Oliver, award-winning Brewmaster and Vice President of Production of the Brooklyn Brewery, recognized by Gourmet Magazine as a “passionate epicure and talented alchemist”, reveals the full spectrum of flavors contained in the more than 50 distinct styles of beer from around the world.

Most importantly, he shows how beer, which is far more versatile than wine, intensifies flavors when it’s appropriately paired with foods to create a dining experience most people have never imagined. Garrett, along with photographer Denton Tillman, traveled throughout Europe visiting fellow brewmasters to trace the beers of the world to their sources. Back in the States, he met with the star chefs he has advised about beer. The resulting book is a motherload of information, lushly illustrated with Tillman’s gorgeous photographs of the world’s best beers and the breweries that produce them. Above all, THE BREWMASTER’S TABLE is a new way of thinking about beer – one that will bring this under-appreciated brew to the status it deserves.

Whether it’s a Belgian wheat beer with a simple salad, a Brooklyn Pilsner to wash down spicy tacos, a pale ale alongside a porcini risotto with foie gras, or even a Framboise to accompany a dark chocolate brownie, beer is the perfect complement to any dining experience, at home in front of the TV or in a four-star restaurant.

He explains how beer is made, shows you its fascinating history, and then leads you through the amazing range of flavors displayed by the dozens of distinct styles of beer from around the world. Finally, he suggests beer pairings that will please your tastebuds and blow your mind. Whether you’re a beer aficionado, a passionate cook, or just someone who loves a great dinner, this book will indeed be a revelation.

The Beer Renaissance is in full swing, and home brewing has never been more popular. According to the American Homebrewers Association, there are currently 1.2 million home brewers in the country, and their numbers keep rising. Tired of the stale ale, bland beer and lackadaisical lagers mass-produced by the commercial labels, Americans are discovering the many advantages of brewing their own batch of that beloved beverage: superior aroma, color, body and flavor.

For both amateur alchemists eager to tap into this burgeoning field and seasoned zymurgists looking to improve their brews, The Brewmaster’s Bible is the ultimate resource. Its features include: Updated data on liquid yeasts, which have become a hot topic for brewers; 30 recipes in each of the classic beer styles of Germany, Belgium, Britain and the U.S.; extensive profiles of grains, malts, adjuncts, additives and sanitizers; recipe formulation charts in an easy-to-read spreadsheet format; detailed water analyses for more than 25 cities and 6 bottled waters; directories to hundreds of shops; and much more.

From the enduring global dominance of Guinness to exciting new craft porters to the resurgence of Russian imperial stouts, porters and stouts are among the most popular beer styles today among homebrewers and craft beer drinkers alike. In Brewing Porters and Stouts widely respected beer and brewing writer Terry Foster presents the history and development of these styles as well as the guidance and expertise necessary to successfully homebrew them yourself.

The book opens with the history of the styles, including the invention of porter in eighteenth-century England, how stouts were born from porters (stouts were originally bolder and stronger or stout porters), the development in the United Kingdom, and introduction to Ireland and eventually the United States, where they remained popular even as they fell out of favor in Britain and surged in popularity as the craft brewing revolution took hold. Foster then goes on to explore the many sub-styles of porters and stouts, providing commercial examples and showcasing some of the most exciting developments in craft brewing today, before breaking down the ingredients, including the various malts as well as special flavorings—such as vanilla, coffee, chocolate, and even bourbon—and finally the yeasts, hops, and waters that are well suited to brewing these styles. Finally, Foster provides a collection of sixty recipes—up to six for each sub-style—showcasing the variety and range of ingredients explored in the book and providing both extract and all-grain instructions.

Brewing Porters and Stouts belongs in the library of every craft beer drinker or homebrewer.
