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.

A fun, festive guide for both the enthusiasts and bar professionals! Here isa smart, pop culture-driven look at the hard cider revolution—the what, how, and why of this fantastic beverage.

Let’s face it: just ten years ago, hard cider was something sipped by expats watching rugby matches or pined for by former foreign exchange students. Heck, many people thought cider was something preschoolers drank in sippy cups before naptime.

Not anymore. Hard cider sales have skyrocketed in the last decade, with craft cider sales increasing 49 percent in just the last two years. But though sales and interest in hard cider continue to grow, there’s still more than a bit of confusion regarding this blossoming alcoholic beverage. Is it a beer, or is it a wine? Is cider-beer a thing? Are all ciders sweet? Polls reveal that some drinkers think Mike’s Hard Lemonade and Redd’s Apple Ale are cider (they’re not). This informative book will include:
A brief overview of world cider history
A more detailed pop culture history of American cider’s explosive growth
Definitions, regions, fun facts, and famous cider and apple quotes
An exploration of cider varieties and brands
More than 50 cider cocktail recipes!

The book explores the cider varieties and brands to try, touches on the history of the drink that fueled the American Revolution, and details the do’s and don’ts of making cider cocktails.

Sell Beer! How to Start a Brewery from the Ground Up

Did you know you can make real money by making and selling your own beer? Do you have a passion for brewing new flavors of beer and want to make a living selling your refreshing drinks? Are you looking for a business that is always in demand? Consider starting a brewery!

Who doesn’t love to drink beer?

A startup brewery is not all about just brewing good beers. There’s lots of competition out there, and in reality, there will always be people who make good or even better beers. Planning is a very big part of your beer journey.

As a future business owner, you need to be on top of a lot of things. It’s not just your beer recipe and finances that you need to be worried about. – you also need to keep track of the regulations and laws of your state, the construction of your brewery, your equipment, your deliveries, etc.

You’ll need a plan.

You also need to have a pulse on what is going on in the market and your demographic. This is so you can adjust or tweak your plan accordingly. Throw your pride and your stubbornness out of the window. Sure, your first plan may seem great at first, but as you steadily work on it and start to figure things out, you will find that what you initially had in your head might not work at all. Building a good business plan needs a lot of research, foresight, and understanding of the market.

It’s a lot of work – trust me.

But for this book, I sat down with my wife and wrote down what we think will help you out.

Now, my wife and I haven’t always had the most business-savvy of minds, and when this all began, we were just a couple of wide-eyed newbies eager to follow our passions. Of course, while they always tell you to follow your dreams and reach for the stars and all that, life isn’t all sunshine and butterflies. Passion can only get you so far, and the cold, harsh truth of reality is that to succeed, you need an actual plan if you don’t want to end up miserable and broke.

Follow your passion!

With all that said, and after building my own micro beer brewery from the ground up, I’ve decided to share everything I know to make sure you, dear reader, don’t fall into the same traps I fell into when I was first starting out. This isn’t a how-to for brewing beer, mind you – you’d pretty much already have that down pat if you’re a real aficionado. Instead, what I’d like to do with this book is to show you the ropes and guide you through the business side of things, and no, you don’t really need a Business degree to make it out of this commercial world unscathed.

How do I start creating the brewery of my dreams? Here’s what you will learn in my book:

All About the Statistics and Numbers
What a Microbrewery is vs. a Craft Brewery
The (minimal) Basics of Beer Making
Creating the Business Plan
How to Conduct Market Research and Consumer Analysis
Finding a Location
Leasing or Buying the Equipment You’ll Need
Finances and Startup Costs
What to Consider with Financial Planning
Ways to Gain Funding
Legal Identity, Business Name, and Trademark Advice
How to File for a Brewer’s Notice in the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau
A Discussion of the Licenses You Will Need
Insurance Advice
Real Life Marketing Strategies
Staffing and Boosting Morale
This book isn’t a business course textbook. I want to show you from a real-world example how you can start, run, and grow a successful brewery that you can be proud of. It won’t happen overnight, but with careful planning and the help of this book, you can make it happen!
