Fine wine has always had its expert guides to taste and "terroir." Why not beer? Funky, young, and smart, this is the ultimate beer geek's companion, covering everything from the homebrew renaissance to nanobreweries to many of America's preeminent beer events and festivals. There's a revolution brewing among craft beer makers: They're reviving long-forgotten recipes, dosing brews with wild yeasts to create new flavors, and using organic grains and hops to forge a delicious new frontier of beer. And no one's better equipped to tell us what's happening than Joshua M. Bernstein, former Gourmet.com writer and one of the world's foremost beer experts. He covers all of today's top trends, including high-alcohol, bourbon barrel-aged, cask-conditioned, and even gluten-free beers.

Review by Library Journal (2011-09-15)

The craft beer movement continues to thrive, and well-known beer writer and columnist Bernstein does a great job documenting some of its recent history and trends. This book is a nice mix of background information about beer and brewing as well as updates on the newer directions of the industry-e. g., chapters on Deco-consciousness in brewing, bringing back forgotten beer styles and types, seasonal brews (an old idea coming back in vogue), new ways to package craft beers including (gasp) in cans, and home brewing, the ultimate craft beer. The book is conversational in tone and easy to read with an eye-catching layout styled as a notebook (complete with tasting notes and photos) and lists of beers to try at the end of each chapter.

Verdict: Consumers are moving beyond the mainstream bottlers, and this is a fun read on a topic many would like to know more about. Recommended.
