The Complete Beer Course: Boot Camp for Beer Geeks: From Novice to Expert in Twelve Tasting Classesby Joshua M Bernstein
Synopses & Reviews
Itand#39;s a great time to be a beer drinker, but also the most confusing, thanks to the dizzying array of available draft beers. Expert Joshua Bernstein comes to the rescue with The Complete Beer Course, demystifying the sudsy stuff and breaking down the elements that make a beerand#39;s flavor spin into distinctively different and delicious directions. Structured around a series of easy-to-follow classes, his course hops from lagers and pilsners to hazy wheat beers, Belgian-style abbey and Trappist ales, aromatic pale ales and bitter IPAs, roasty stouts, barrel-aged brews, belly-warming barley wines, and mouth-puckering sour ales. There is even a class on international beer styles and another on pairing beer with food and starting your own beer cellar. Through suggested, targeted tastings, youand#39;ll learn when to drink down-and when to dump those suds down a drain.
Through 12 easy-to-follow lessons, beer expert Joshua Bernstein demystifies the sudsy stuff, breaking down the elements that give each type its distinctively delicious flavor. His course hops from lagers and pilsners to roasty stouts and mouth-puckering sour ales, and targeted tastings teach you which flavors are appropriate-and which to dump.
